'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting: Troian Bellisario as Anastasia Steele [PHOTOS]
Apparently, famous television stars are getting into the "Fifty Shades" buzz. "Gossip Girls" stars, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester aren't the only celebtiries eyed for the role of Anastasia Steele. Even the girls of "Pretty Little Liars" are said to be suitable to portray the 22-year old virginal college student. One new name from "PLL" thrown in the mix is Troian Bellisario.
E.L. James best-selling erotica novel continues to be the most read and most talked about book today. A lot of fans are not only talking about the book but the highly-anticipated film adaptation set for summer 2014. With Universal Studios still busy searching for a suitable director, fans are busy rounding up potential stars set to portray the lead roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
Currently in the lead to play the 27-year old dominant entrepreneur, Christian Grey, is "White Collar's" Matt Bomer. Following close to Bomer is "Man of Steel's" Henry Cavill while "The Vampire Diaries'" Ian Somerhalder ranks at third. Still, Somerhalder continues to be a fan favourite even with Bomer ruling some web polls.
As for the role of Anastasia Steele, "Gilmore Girls" star, Alexis Bledel is currently at the top. Emilia Clarke of "Game of Thrones" ranks in at second place while "Like Crazy" actress, Felicity Jones comes in at third. A few other notable names mentioned in the mix as potential Anastasia Steele are Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart and Amanda Seyfried.
Hollywood big shots aren't the only stars considered for the role of Ana because some names included on fan polls are television hot shots. Lucy Hale and Ashley Benson of "Pretty Little Liars" are two of the hottest names on the list set to play the 22-year old virginal college student. Yet, Ashley and Lucy might have competition for the role of Ana with another "Pretty Little Liar."
Troian Bellisario is up for the role of Anastasia Steele. Despite the age of 27, Troian doesn't look a day over 20 with her brunette hair and pale skin that almost resembles Ana of "Fifty Shades." In an interview with VH1, the actress opened up on the role of Ana and the sultry book series.
"Everyone on the set had to read it before me, and they were like Troian, Troian, just read it you'll like it," said Troian, adding, "I think it would be terrifying. But if you're not doing terrifying things every day, you're not living."
