’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Can Emilia Clarke Beat the Competition for Ana Role? (Video)

The 50 Shades of Grey movie casting options just expanded to include Krysten Ritter, but fans are still dead-set on getting her old Gilmore Girls costar Alexis Bledel cast as Anastasia Steele. However, it looks like some Fifty fans are warming to the idea of Emilia Clarke playing Ana.

According to Mstarz, Ian Somerhalder and Alexis Bledel are still winning a recent fan poll. However, 31-year-old Alexis might be too old to play Ana, and she might not be comfortable shooting nude scenes.

Emilia has said that she doesn’t enjoy shooting nude scenes, but obviously she’s willing to do them if a role calls for them—her Game of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen has stripped down quite a few times on the show. And since Game of Thrones features so much sex and violence, surely Emilia won’t be too intimidated by Christian Grey’s Red Room of Pain.

Here’s the argument one fan made for casting Emilia Clarke as Anastasia Steele:

“She’s young, talented, fine with nudity/sex, pale, petite, big eyes, great body, delicate features, etc…..all the things Christian loves about Ana : ).”

Since Emilia is currently known for her role on a TV show, she might see getting cast in the 50 Shades of Grey movie as the perfect way to make the move to working on films. However, she might not need the help now that she’s dating Ted director Seth MacFarlane.

Since Ian Somerhalder does so well in fan polls, he might seem like the perfect guy to play Emilia’s Christian Grey. However, there have been rumors that Chris Hemsworth is the most-wanted man for the role right now. The chiseled actor and the cherub-cheeked actress would definitely provide the contrast needed to accurately portray the couple composed of an imposing, steely-eyed billionaire and a naïve, inexperience college student.

However, the fan-made trailer Mstarz posted features Emilia and Henry Cavill. Even though he looks very different from Chris, Henry could also make a great Christian.

You can check out the fan-made trailer below. It shows footage from a Dunhill ad that Henry Cavill starred in along with footage of Emilia taken from a sexy photo shoot.

So do you think that Emilia would make the best Ana?
