Fans are desperate to know which leading lady will get the lucky chance to portray Anastasia Steele. Here we have your top ten fan favorites for the role!
Alexis Bledel, known for her role as Rory Gilmore in ‘Gilmore Girls’ and ‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,’ has been a frontrunner in this race since the beginning. Many fans do believe Bledel might be just too old for the role, but also seems to have the ‘sex appeal and awkward charm’ that would make Anastasia come alive.
Emilia Clarke, currently starring in HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones, has recently been added to the list of favorites. Her comfort at being filmed nude, as seen in Game of Thrones, pushes her to the forefront in many fans opinions.
Felicity Jones, taking credit in films such as ‘Like Crazy’ and currently filming ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2,’ is a recent fan favorite. Many believe she has the natural look of Ana and she has stated that she would have no problem going nude for the film.
Alexandra Daddario, who snagged a role beside Christian Grey favorite, Matt Bomer in his USA show ‘White Collar’, is a less talked about fan favorite for the role.
Lucy Hale, known for her role as Aria in ABC Family’s ‘Pretty Little Liars’, is no newcomer to the running. She has expressed a serious interest in being cast for the role and has also expressed her love for E.L. Jame’s trilogy. She is closer to the age of Ana in the novels and a favorite in our minds.
Amanda Seyfried is no stranger to the big screen. Boasting film credits in big hits such as ‘Les Miserables,’ ‘Mamma Mia’ and teen favorite ‘Mean Girls,’ Seyfried has the talent to pull the role off. However, is she perhaps too beautiful for the awkward hidden beauty of Ana?
Ashley Greene, star of ‘The Twilight Saga’, has recently been added to our list. Having recently expressed her obsession with the ‘Fifty Shades’ trilogy, we would not be surprised to hear of Greene auditioning for the role of Ana.
Nina Dobrev, known for her role as Elena in the hit CW show ‘The Vampire Diaries’, is often talked about alongside fan fave, Ian Somerhalder. Real life couple, Dobrev and Somerhalder are one of the top couple contenders for the roles. We do not think this casting will happen.
Emma Watson was a fan favorite. Known for her role as Hermione Granger in ‘Harry Potter’, Watson has since stated that she will NOT star in the film. Sorry Potter fans. Watson is dead set that this role is not for her.
A newcomer to the race is Lauren Watson. Who is this mysterious contender? Watson boasts film credits such as a role in the Reese Witherspoon film, ‘This Means War.’ Not much is known on her at this time, but we will update as information becomes available.
