“Fifty Shades” movie franchise has always wanted “Gilmore Girls” and “Mad Men” fame Alexis Bledel to play Anastasia Steel but since that couldn’t happen, fans has once again roared her name up for the role of submissive Leila Williams. If chosen, Bledel will be playing a very convincing role of the previous submissive of Christian Grey. Read on for more details.
“Fifty Shades Darker” movie, second from the franchise, is still stuck in loops and the release date is already postponed for a year. Apparently, Jamie Dornan’s wife Amelia is not keeping calm with all the rumours of her husband and Dakota Johnson coming much closer than expected onscreen as well as off-screen. This seems like a long fight, and “Fifty Shades” franchise is definitely suffering from this.
Meanwhile, the “Gilmore Girls” star was up for the role of Anastasia Steel in “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie. Fans had opened up a petition on Change.org and demanded Bledel and “Magic Mike” cast member Matt Bomer to play roles of Ana and Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Well, that couldn’t happen and both the actors who were aware of the then ongoing petition said that they were overwhelmed by their fan’s love for them.
E.L. James even wanted Bledel to play a big role in “Fifty Shades” franchise. Although, the role of Leila Williams is not huge, but it is definitely important in the film. “Fifty Shades Darker” movie will be having Christian Grey’s backstory and who knows, we might even get to see some steamy scenes between Dornan and Bledel.
A recent poll by Fashionnstyle has once again raised eyebrows and fans are eager to know if she will actually get chosen this time for the role submissive Leila Williams. As reported before, Cara Delevingne is also up for the same role and Alexis Bledel will have a much tougher competition this time around!
