Jason Taylor is Christian Grey's most trusted bodyguard and the head of Christian's security team.
Ana sees a lot of similarities between Taylor and her stepfather Ray : both are ex-military, and she describes both men as taciturn. Taylor makes several kind, thoughtful gestures towards Ana, such as offering her his hanky when she is upset about breaking up with Christian at the very end of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Taylor appears to be something of a renaissance man: he likes classical music, and is spotted reading an Anthony Burgess novel during the Grey's honeymoon.
Taylor is in a relationship with Christian's housekeeper Gail Jones, they eventually marry. He has a daughter named Sophie from his previous marriage. As a part of Taylor's benefits, Christian pays for Sophie's schooling.
Taylor is in his late 30's. He is tall, muscular, and wears an extreme buzz cut hair style.
On November 26, 2013, it was announced that actor Max Martini will be portraying Taylor in the film adaptation of EL James's erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, which is slated for release on February 14, 2015.
