We’ve heard so much lately about the candidates for Christian Grey, but what about for Anastasia Steele? The headlines are all about Ian Somerhalder and Henry Cavill, but what about the blue-eyed beauty who’ll get to submit to Christian Grey in the red room of pain?
Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke is one of the top favorites for the part of Anastasia Steele, and while many of us know her as the feisty, platinum blonde from Game of Thrones, in real life she’s a bubbly, petite brunette who we definitely could imagine in the role of Anastasia Steele.
One source arguing the case for her casting told Gather, “She’s young, talented, petite, big eyes, great body, delicate features etc… all the things Christian loves about Ana.”
Emilia Clarke has admitted that she’s not a huge fan of doing nude work, but she has taken the clothes off when the work requires it. In the Game of Thrones she plays Daenerys Targaryan and has definitely shown a lot of flesh more than once. She’s no stranger to these types of scenes when they require this in the movies, so we don’t see why she would balk at playing Ana.
