So is he. The smoldering Fifty Shades of Grey star, who was named one of Men of the Year in PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive isssue, says he’s ready to play the business magnate in the franchise’s second installment, due out in February 2017. “I’m looking forward to embodying Christian again – and getting a chance to show more of him,” he tells PEOPLE. For more on the Sexiest Man Alive – and to see who else made the cut – pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday What he’s not anticipating, however, is the dreary rain in Vancouver – the Canadian city where the movies are filmed. In Fifty Shades Darker, the second book in the trilogy by E.L. James, Christian reunites with recent college grad Anastasia Steele, played, once again, by Dakota Johnson. The 33-year-old – who is expecting his second child with wife Amelia Warner – says he’s currently busy dodging fans of Fifty Shades on the street (“The only thing they all ever ask is ‘can I get a selfie?’ “) and filming BBC psychological thriller The Fall in Ireland. The best part of working on the series? “Getting to film in Belfast (where I grew up) and being surrounded by fellow Irish people,” Dornan says. While Dornan is great as bad guy Paul Spector, we definitely prefer him in that silver tie.
