Though no official statement has been released regarding Jamie Dornan’s casting as Christian Grey, Fifty Shades of Grey author E L James broke her silence Thursday to tweet her thoughts, with a quote straight from the book.

James broke the original casting of Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson on Twitter, so it was a bit of a surprise that she hadn’t weighed in when Dornan’s casting broke late Wednesday evening. While the world waits for Focus/Universal to confirm that the casting is finalized, at least Dornan can sit tight knowing that the mastermind behind the racy phenomenon welcomes him wholeheartedly to the film and #TeamFifty.
