Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele

Updated on February 23, 2015

Who is Dakota Johnson?

I was not entirely convinced that Dakota Johnson will fit the role. I had another actress in mind that is why I was wary with the choice. But seeing the movie pictures, I will set aside my doubts and give her a chance. She has turned into the Ana that I have envisioned in the book. I think I have to commend the production team behind the makeover but the emotions she brings is hers alone. I just hope her acting skills will be perfect.

I have read some of her interviews. The good thing about her - she totally understands what is expected. Also, she is open to everything that will be required to give justice to the role. Furthermore, she has no hesitations whatsoever. I guess she is a big fan of the trilogy as well since she is willing to do everything to bring the magic of the book into the movie screen.

Fifty Shades of Grey - The Movie

This is the highly anticipated movie of 2015. It was supposed to be released in theaters in late 2014 but due to production problems it was pushed to a much later date. This particular movie is based on the worldwide phenomenon trilogy with the same title.

There were many actors and actresses considered for the coveted roles. Fans all over the world even had their favorites and rallied to push their choices. But due to the more mature scenes, some of the more favored actors and actresses had to decline.

I was a bit disappointed with the choices for the main characters but after seeing them evolved, I can say that the production has made a good choice. The physical appearance of each of these characters are similar to the ones in the book. I just hope that the film will be worth the wait.

The Movie Adaptation

It is a trend to adapt books into a film. While this is a good avenue for readers to see the stories come to life, this also corresponds to a negative connotation. Not all readers are fond of seeing book stories on film and not all popular books must be brought into the screen.

I'm one of those readers who prefer to keep the magic of the story enclosed in the book. Movies usually destroy the image that I have already set. At times, the actors & actresses and script disappoint. But I allow myself to widen my perception and give the movie adaptation the benefit of the doubt.

Who is Anastasia Steele?

Anastasia "Ana" Steele is the central character in the trilogy by E. L. James. She is the object of affection and obsession of Christian Grey, a young and wealthy business tycoon with whom she falls in love with despite his baggage."

I'm not a big fan of this character. She is childish and complains a lot. But throughout the book, she has developed into a mature woman. She may not be perfect but she complements Mr. Grey well.

      @YuukoSuzuki: The Anastasia Steele character is based on the Twilight character Bella. That should give you an image of her.
