Fifty Shades of Grey the movie: Who do you want to play Anastasia Steele?

Alexis Bledel might be the bookies' favourite, but who do you think should star opposite EL James' Christian Grey?

Who do you think should play EL James’ innocent college graduate Anastasia Steele when the saucy story hits the big screen?


Universal has teased that the film could be in cinemas next summer. We have a screenwriter (Kelly Marcel). And a director (Sam Taylor-Johnson). Surely the next announcement will be the actress who’ll play Fifty Shades’ female lead?

Plenty of big Hollywood names, as well as lesser-known starlets, have been linked to the role. And it’s a big decision. Fans will be up in arms if the casting is wrong…

Alexis Bledel is currently the bookies’ favourite. She’s certainly got that wide-eyed, innocent look. And she did date a Christian Grey-esque character in the final series of The Gilmore Girls, so we know she’d be able to do it…

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is another popular one (and we know she’s not one to shy away from a little nudity…), as is Chalet Girl’s Felicity Jones. And then there are Mila Kunis and Emma Watson (who’ve both batted away rumours), Lucy Hale, Leighton Meester, Amanda Seyfried (who recently played porn star Linda Lovelace) and ex-porn star Sasha Grey (who’s also got an appropriate surname!)


But who would you like to see cavorting around in the bedroom with Christian Grey?
