The “Fifty Shades of Grey” sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker” is undoubtedly one of the most-awaited sequels in 2016. Now, for those who have read the erotic novel written by E.L. James, then you should know that it introduces a couple of new characters in the show including Christian Grey’s submissive and his former dominatrix, Elena Lincoln or as Anastasia Steele likes to call her, Mrs. Robinson.


Cara Delevingne is currently being rumored to play as Christian Grey’s submissive, Leila Williams, but Delevingne has yet to confirm or deny the reports. Jamie Dornan will be reprising his role as Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson will be back as Anastasia Steele.

With news about Delevingne’s rumored casting as Leila, fans were left wondering as to who will play the villainous Elena Lincoln or Mrs. Robinson. Fans of the book series have already compiled a list of actresses who they think would best fit the role.

Before we check on some of the notable actresses for the role, let us take a look at Mrs. Robinson’s features as described in the book. Lincoln was a friend of Christian’s mother, who also became Christian’s dominatrix for six years. Elena is described as a tall and beautiful blonde who stays by Christian’s side as his friend and business partner.

Which actresses will best fit this role?

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is one of the actresses being considered by fans (and some critics) for the role, especially after her successful appearances in “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” trilogies.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman has played as Jennifer Aniston’s mean friend, “Devlin” in the movie, “Just Go With It.” While Kidman may have such a great profile as Mrs. Robinson, unfortunately, the 47-year-old actress is taller than Dornan.

Charlize Theron


Charlize Theron remains one of the fan-favorites, especially because everything about her seems to resemble Mrs. Robinson. Well, won’t she make a hot, sexy dominatrix? Yes, she would. The 39-year-old actress gave a successful performance as the evil queen in “Snow White and the Huntsman” and even her age seems to coincide with that of Elena’s, who, according to Anastasia is in her late 30s or early 40s.
