We cannot wait for the film adaptation of EL James' smash hit novel Fifty Shades of Grey. With the movie's big screen debut still a long way off though we're still waiting to hear the big casting news: who will take on the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey? Despite intense speculation, very little is known about who will take the parts, so here at EntertainmentWise we've done some digging and found out who the top contenders are to play shy Ana...
First up, we have Alexis Bledel, who has become somewhat of a fan favourite to snag the coveted role. Alexis is best known for her straightlaced role in the Gilmore Girls, so getting down and dirty in Fifty Shades will definitely be a challenge. Despite this fans are so keen for her to become Anatasia they have even created mock trailers alongside Magic Mike's Matt Bomer, and judging by the views on these vids we think Alexis has enough spark to set 50 Shades alight!
Emilia Clarke is no stranger to nudity on screen thanks to Game of Thrones! (WENN)
Emilia has shot to fame in her role in mega hit series Game Of Thrones and that show has certainly demonstrated that she doesn't shy away from nudity. Not only have we seen her in the buff quite a bit in Game of Thrones, she has also bared all in the Broadway Show "Breakfast At Tiffany's." And after it was reported that the theatre had to beef up security after people were interupting the play to take photos - it seems that she already is a hit with the public.
Could Amanda go from playing Linda Lovelace to Ana Steele? (WENN)
Our next actress is a bigger box office draw and no stranger to taking on big roles. Amanda has had huge success with lead parts in Les Mis and Mamma Mia, so it seems this lady certainly knows how to carry a film. Not only that her most recent release - Lovelace - sees her play pornstar Linda Lovelace - so it seems her A List status doesn't stop her getting her kit off.
Jane is a recent addition to the Fifty Shades rumour mill and the actress could prove to be a dark horse in snagging the role. In 2013, she starred in the Evil Dead and can currently be seen in ABC's Suburgatory. In addition, iconic fan community Everything 50 Shades recently announced her to be the "perfect Ana"
However, it seems not everybody wants to strip down for the role..Emma Watson categorically denied involvement with the film. Posting on her Twitter earlier this year, the Harry Potter star declared "who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life."
And it also, appears Kristen Stewart won't appear as Anastasia. The actress is still closely affiliated with her role as Bella Swan in Twilight, but author E L James has already said that she doesn't want to cast her - which pretty much rules her out.
So there are the frontrunners for the role, who would you like to see play Ana?
