’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Is Emilia Clarke Becoming the New Anastasia Steele Favorite?

The 50 Shades of Grey movie favorites for the role of Anastasia Steele are battling it out again in yet another fan poll.

Fifty fans are continuing to push for Alexis Bledel to win the role, which is evidenced by the percentage of the vote she is getting in a Latinos Post poll. However, the 50 Shades filmmakers might not want to cast the Gilmore Girls star in the movie since she’s a bit too old for the part—Alexis is a decade older than 21-year-old Ana.

Alexis is currently pretty far ahead of her competition with 32 percent of the vote, but perhaps Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke has a better chance at scoring the role. The 25-year-old is a more suitable age for the part, and she is sitting pretty in second place with 17 percent of the vote. Emilia would make a great Anastasia Steele because she has a very sweet and innocent face, but she has proved that she isn’t scared of dark sex scenes.

Fans seem to be pretty divided when it comes to casting Ana, because the race for third place is pretty close. Nina Dobrev is currently ahead with 14 percent of the vote, but Emma Watson is barely trailing her at 11 percent.

Some fans of The Vampire Diaries probably want to see Nina in the movie alongside her boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder, who is one of the heavy favorites for the role of Christian Grey. However, Emma Watson could be tough competition—she has talked about the possibility of starring in the 50 Shades of Grey movie and has said that she’s open to filming nude scenes. It looks like Harry Potter fans are finally starting to accept that Hermione isn’t a little kid anymore.

Nina Dobrev has made it clear that she won’t play Ana if Ian Somerhalder gets cast as Christian Grey, so fans who want Ian in the movie might want to start rooting for Emma Watson and Emilia Clarke. Alexis Bledel could also still win the role despite her age since actresses and actors play characters that are much younger all the time (just look at the cast of Glee).

Right now it looks like the race is really between Alexis and Emilia. So which actress would you like to see as Anastasia Steele?
