Actors Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson appeared in the first photos from the movie set of  "Fifty Shades of Grey" released Monday, stoking the fever of fans eager to see a film that won't be out for another eight months.

Fans were able to see "Fifty Shades" characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele come to life for the first time as Dornan, 31, and Johnson, 24, were filmed inside of what appeared to be a coffee shop in Vancouver, according to the New York Daily News,  though most of the action will take place south of Seattle.

The movie is a film adaptation of E.L. James' runaway hit erotic novel about the relationship between a rich young man and his naïve college student girlfriend.

The author told Entertainment Weekly that she was "terrified" about the filming of the movie.

"I've been terrified from the moment I published the book," said the British author. "My mother was terrified of everything, and so am I. It's a terrible way to grow up. You don't expect this kind of success. Even now it floors me. My only ambition for the books was to see them in bookstores. This is huge. And there is this passionate fandom; we need to get this right for them."

Dornan joined the cast to play the lead Christian Grey after "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the project, reported MTV.com.

The actor plays Sheriff Graham Humbert on ABC's television series "Once Upon a Time" and appeared in Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette" in 2006. Dornan also worked for Calvin Klein, Armani and Christian Dior as a model.

The Daily News said the film is expected to hit movie theaters on Aug. 1, 2014. Hunnam's departure just before filming put the release date in limbo until Dornan was signed.

"Fifty Shades of Grey" and its two follow-up books sold 29 million copies in trade paper back in 2012 with another 15 million digital copies, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "Fifty Shades" appeared first as an e-book and was later printed in paperback.
