Emilia Clarke to Star in Fifty Shades of Grey?

by at .

Another day, another Fifty Shades of Grey cast rumor.

This one may be better received than most, however.

The latest gossip is that the Fifty Shades of Grey producers' favorite choice for Anastasia Steele is none other than Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke.

According to MTV UK, Cara Delevingne auditioned for the role, but didn't win it (though she is reportedly still in the running for other parts in the film).

Emilia, meanwhile, has emerged as a real contender.

She has as big a fan base as other actresses who have been linked to the role - Dakota Johnson, Alicia Vikander, Imogen Poots, Shailene Woodley, etc.

Other fan picks include Alexis Bledel and Lucy Hale, but we don't expect they'll get a serious look. Clarke, on the other hand, may have the look and the chops.

The main problem with Emilia, 26, might be scheduling conflicts, since she's currently working on a movie called Rosaline on top of Game of Thrones.

What do you think: Should she play Ana?
