Whooooo that was a long, very exciting wait! Speculation ran wild for so many gorgeous actors that would have fit the Fifty Shades of Grey roles perfectly, but the actors chosen for Christian and Ana have finally been announced! And the official word has come from the author herself!
E.L. James just tweeted:
E L James @E_L_James Good moaning all. Hold on to your hats…
E L James @E_L_James I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
“I think the guy read it and didn’t like the book or something, so he splashed someone with BBQ sauce.”
NOTE: LATEST UPDATE on this list —> September 5th 2015! (see them below, in the reader recommendations section – 37 new suggestions!) 🙂 This is a work in progress. I will personally “taste-test” each book (hehe) that makes this list before I add it to the main part. These are my favorite lists to make, but this one’s been hard on me!! There have been many recommendations and suggestions (keep ’em coming!) but not all have given me that “Fifty” feel, ya know? I mean… come on… What the heck can live up to Fifty?? It’s been said many times, that Fifty’s ruined us for all others.
First and foremost: *hugs Tina ferociously and squeeeeeees in her ear!!!* (thank goodness for virtual squee’ing. Less physical damage that way, ’cause if this was in person, Tina’s ears would be ringing for a week!)
OMG TINA!!!! I love it! L-O-V-E —-> LOVE!!!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!
As many of you know, E.L. James just finished a tremendously popular book signing tour, and her last stop was in New York. My friend Tina went to the signing and enjoyed a wonderful evening with E.L. James and other author friends, and LOOK what she got for me in the process!!! The entire trilogy in print! I may have went by the way of digital e-books, but I LOVE displaying my absolute favorites in print in my book room.
