Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James was at the San Diego Comic-Con today doing a book signing, and according to the Hollywood Reporter many fans came prepared to let E.L. know just who they pictured as the leads in the soon-to-be film adaptation of her book. Emilia once again proved to be one of the fans’ top choices for Ana Steele.
Waiting fans expressed definite opinions about who should play lead characters Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Many came with prints outs of their choice or with photos on their phone, ready to lobby James.
A majority favored Matt Bomer (White Collar) or Ian Somerholder (Vampire Diairies) for Grey. Choices for Anastasia were all over the map. The single most popular choice was probably Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), with a few others mentioning former Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel.
