Fifty Shades of Grey is coming to theaters this upcoming Valentine’s Day with Dakota Johnson portraying Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as the title character Christian Grey.
Entertainment Weekly reports that before Johnson was chosen to play the young woman, there was a list of several actresses being considered for the position and that includes one Pretty Little Liar star, Lucy Hale. Hale even went in for a filmed audition, which she described to be, “unlike any audition I have ever done before in my life.”
Us Weekly describes her audition process as exactly what one could expect even though it was just her with a two-page monologue. In addition she said it was, “very uncomfortable.” While Hale was hoping it would help her break out and experience something different, it took her out of her comfort zone, but she believes, “any girl in my demographic would have loved to be a part of it.”
Chloe Bridges, from The Carrie Diaries, felt the same as she also auditioned for the role but later said, “I don't know guys, I have to go home to my grandparents' house in a few months at Christmas, I don't know if I can do this."
