When Fifty Shades of Grey, the book, came out, I was one of those women who got hooked into reading the trilogy. I fell in love with Christian Grey and kinilig ako for Anastasia Steele, the book’s heroine. I wanted my own Christian Grey! He was rich, young, romantic, strong and well, he was a darn good looking sex god according to how EL James described him! When it was announced that the book would be turned into a movie, I was one of the fans who was absolutely thrilled with the news! I was part of the thousands of other Fifty Shades fans who giddily anticipated the Fifty Shades of Grey casting choices for the two lead roles.
My Fifty Shade of Grey Casting Choice
I wanted Ian Somerhalder to play Christian Grey. I still do. And heck if I had my way, he would be Christian! My other female friends wanted Matt Bomer to play the part and well you know with those eyes of Matt’s, he could be too. For the role of Anastasia, I was rooting for Alexei Bledel. She would be perfect to play sweet and innocent looking Anastasia Steele.
Now, finally, the official Fifty Shades of Grey casting choices have been announced. Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson have been cast for the roles of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. I have to be honest. When I first found out about this, my initial reactions were “NOOOOOOOOOOOO!” followed by “WHY THEM?!!” That’s specially my reaction finding out Charlie Hunnam would be Christian Grey.
But I guess producers saw something in them. And I’m pretty sure Twi-hards shared the same reaction when Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward Cullen and KStew was cast as Bella in the Twilight franchise. RPatz did Edward Cullen justice. Can’t say the same about KStew though!
So…now that I’ve had time to absorb the news fully, I’m reading up more about these two actors who are set to bring to the big screen Christian and Ana. Also been searching the Web for more pictures of these two – particularly Charlie.
