It’s looking like Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke is the new frontrunner to play Anastasia in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Emilia portrays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones and is getting a lot of fan support in polls conducted by Latinos Post, to play Ana. According to Gather, “Emilia Clarke is once again attaining front runner status as Ana.” She’s currently beating Alexis Bledel for the lead and appears to be a good choice since she’s a fresh face.
I mean, imagine Angelina Jolie as Ana or Scarlett Johansson it would completely pull you out of the movie because you’d be seeing Angelina Jolie get spanked by Christian Grey instead of the character. It’s better we leave such developed characters, since we’ve all read the book and know what Anastasia is like, to more unknowns. The combination of an over-exposed starlet and a character we’re all familiar with is just too much information competing for our attention.
What do you think? Can you see Emilia Clarke as Anastasia?
