The world is really excited to see Fifty Shades of Grey Cast but not everyone knows who were the actresses and actors left behind… BRABBU knows it! If you too want to know who is actually starring and casting in this so-expected movie, and who are the options left aside, join BRABBU and discover every detail!
E. L. James’ first choice for the double wonder in Fifty Shades of Grey was Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, however, the author felt that casting them in the film would be “weird” because of their roles in Twilight Saga.
The role of Christian had some interest expressed by Ian Somerhalder and Chace Crawford. Somerhalder latter admitted if he had been considered, the filming process would ultimately have conflicted with his shooting schedule for The CW series The Vampire Diaries. Ryan Gosling and Garrett Hedlund were also considered for Christian, but Gosling was not interested in the role and Hedlund could not connect with the character.
Stephen Amell said he would not have wanted to play the role of Grey because “I actually didn’t find him to be that interesting… nothing about Christian Grey really spoke to me”.
The list of other actresses considered for Fifty Shades of Grey Cast role of Anastacia included Imogen Poots, Felicity Jones, Alicia Vikander and Shailene Woodley. For getting Anastacia role, the director Sam Taylor-Johnson, would give every actress who came for audition to read four pages of a monologue from Ingmar Bergman‘s Persona.
On September, 2013, author James said that Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson had been Fifty Shades of Grey Cast as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Hunnam initially turned down the role of Christian but later reconsidered it following a meeting with studio heads.
“I felt really intrigued and excited about it so I went and read the first book to get a clearer idea of who this character was, and I felt even more excited at the prospect of bringing him to life. We (Taylor-Johnson and I) kind of both suggested I do a reading with Dakota, who was her favorite, and as soon as we got in the room and I started reading with Dakota I knew that I definitely wanted to do it. There’s just like a tangible chemistry between us. It felt exciting and fun and weird and compelling” said Hunnam.
On October, 2013, Universal Pictures announced that Hunnam had exited the film due to conflicts with the schedule of his FX series Sons of Anarchy. At the top of the list to replace Hunnam were Alexander Skarsgård, Jamie Dornan, Theo James, François Arnaud, Scott Eastwood, Luke Bracey and Billy Magnussen.
Finally, Dornan was cast as Christian Grey.
On October, 2013, Victor Rasuk was cast as José Rodriguez, Jr. On November, 2013 Eloise Mumford was cast as Kate Kavanagh. On December, 2013, Marcia Gay Harden was cast as Christian’s mother, Grace. On the same month Rita Ora, who wanted to work on the soundtrack, was cast as Christian’s younger sister Mia.
So, what do you think about those choices? With this cast, no wonder that everyone wants to see Fifty Shades of Grey.
