As casting for the hotly awaited “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie continues this week, readers of E.L. James bestselling erotic novel have heard a variety of actors and fan bases voice their interest in the film’s colorful roles. From the IB Times reporting this Sunday, Feb. 3, that fans have recently taken to Instagram to post photos of their favorite stars to Enstarz adding this morning that a new candidate is returning to the casting debate, the steamy adaptation's men and women are never far from its followers’ minds. It also becomes apparent that not only are Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele key characters to be cast, but the supporting figures throughout the story are equally important to the lovers’ initial meeting.
Two of these supporting characters in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy are Kate Kavanagh and Elliot Grey. Kate Kavanagh plays an integral role in the series as an ambitious journalist as well as Anastasia Steele’s roommate and best friend. Described in the novels as a beautiful young woman with strawberry-blonde hair, she acts as the impetus through which Ana first meets Christian in an interview. Although her confident and protective ways cause mixed effects in Ana’s love life, she always has her best friend’s interests at heart.
Elliot Grey may not receive as much fanfare as his younger brother, Christian Grey, but will also make an appearance in the first “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie. Described as a very tall and broad-shouldered man in his early 30s with blue eyes and curly, blonde hair, he eventually develops a relationship with Kate Kavanagh. Elliot first meets Ana after picking her up with Christian at a night club after she’s had a bit too much to drink.
Casting of these two characters will play an important role in the film — not only for chemistry with not just one another, but the way in which they connect with Ana and Christian onscreen. Listed here are ten actors and actresses that not only fit the descriptions of Kate Kavanagh and Elliot Grey, but also seem to be popular in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” fandom with capable acting skill.
