As the 50 Shades of Grey movie casting talk continues, it’s interesting to see new favorites mentioned almost every day.
A new Pinterest poll has just revealed users’ top ten actresses to play the role of Anastasia Steele, and one of more intriguing women on the list is definitely the lovely Emilia Clarke. The British star is probably best known for playing fair-haired princess Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO show Game of Thrones.
The naturally brunette beauty has done nude scenes on the show; she’s the right age for the role; and her face seems perfect for the part – at times she can look a bit awkward and silly, but she can also look rather sensual. This ability is definitely going to be needed to play Anastasia Steele since her goofy inner goddess’ inner monologue contrasts so starkly with her steamy sex scenes with Christian Grey.
And because of her experience with the dark themes explored in Game of Thrones (there’s lots of sex and torture), Emilia Clarke might be a better fit for the 50 Shades of Grey film than some of the other TV actresses on the list of Pinterest favorites. Other actresses on the list known for starring in popular TV shows are Nina Dobrev, Selena Gomez, and Leighton Meester.
There are also a few movie actresses on the list that might look the part, but they’re probably opposed to doing nude scenes based on their past films. These include Lily Collins and Emma Watson. Rachel McAdams and Anne Hathaway have both done nude scenes, but they might be just a bit too old to play Anastasia Steele.
Then there are Amanda Seyfried and Felicity Jones, who have proved that they’re okay with showing a little skin. They could also do a better job pulling off looking 21 than Anne and Rachel.
However, Emilia still seems like the best option out of the Pinterest favorites. Do you agree?
