The erotic drama is currently shooting in Vancouver with Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, the duo at the center of the spanking-hot love story.
Harden will portray Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey, the adoptive mother of Christian Grey, Mia Grey (Rita Ora) and Elliot Grey (Luke Grimes).
Also in the adaptation of the EL James novel are Eloise Mumford as Anastasia’s best friend, Kate Kavanagh; Victor Rasuk as Anastasia’s close friend José; Jennifer Ehle as Anastasia’s mother, Carla; and Max Martini as Grey’s bodyguard.
