Although it’s starting to seem as though every actress in Hollywood is being considered for the role of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ adaptation, there’s only a select few that the fans are passionately behind.
Last time we uploaded an article about Fifty Shades of Grey, suggesting that Shailene Woodley and Alexandra Daddario are gaining industry buzz for the role, fans commented that their favorite for the role is Emilia Clarke, with one fan saying, “I'd personally like to see Emilia Clarke or Felicity Jones take the part. Emilia seems to be the true frontrunner now as she's recently beat out Alexis and a handful of other top choices in several recent polls I've come across. Emilia has the look and the experience w/ nudity and sex scenes. And she's up and coming. Not quite as well known, yet still a very popular pick for Ana!”
Another source at Gather also added, “She's young, talented, fine with nudity/sex, pale, petite, big eyes, great body, delicate features, etc... all the things Christian loves about Ana :)."
While the script is rumored to be completed, producers are yet to announce casting, although rumors are that they’ve already selected a few actresses that they will audition. Twilight’s producer recently said that whoever gets the role of Ana and Christian will become the industry’s next Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and it seems like he’s right. Fan fervor for the casting has reached a fever pitch recently, even though the film hasn’t technically even gone into production yet. At this rate, the film looks on pace to break records for a Rated R film, because no matter what they do, they won’t be able reduce the rating to PG-13.
