When it was announced that the hit novel Fifty Shades of Grey was being adapted for the big screen, it did not take long for the fans to start suggesting who they thought should play the lead roles in the movie. As well as plenty of actors being linked to the role of Christian Grey for the movie, there were also plenty of actresses being linked to Anastasia Steele in the film.
One of the fans favourites to play the role of Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, was Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, who got a huge amount of backing from the fans. Emilia has now opened up about the movie, admitting that she turned down the chance to play the role, due to the amount of nudity in the film.
Clarke was talking to Britain's Marie Claire magazine, when she explained, "I really wanted to work with (director) Sam Taylor-Johnson because she's f**king amazing. But there is a huge amount of nudity in the film. I'll never say 'I'm never doing nudity,' because I've already done it, but I thought I might get stuck in a pigeonhole that I would have struggled to get out of."
While it could be seen to many as a big missed opportunity for such a promising actress, Emilia Clarke has continued to prove herself and has landed a very big role indeed. Emilia takes on the role of Sarah Connor in the new movie Terminator Genisys, which is set to hit the big screen on July 1 in the US and July 2 in the UK.
