Is Marcia just what the doctor ordered for Christian’s physician mom, or were you hoping for someone else? Drop a comment with your thoughts on this casting!
Christian Grey may be in lust with Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, but before she came along, the most important woman in his life was his adoptive mother — not that “crack whore” who gave birth to him — and now we finally know who will be playing her in the movie! Marcia Gay Harden has been cast as Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey, HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site Deadline is reporting.
Without giving too much away, Grace is more than just Christian’s mother; she’s also the person who introduces him to Elena, the cougar who initially teaches him the ways of BDSM. (You know, just what every mother hopes her son will pick up on.)
Of course, this is hardly the most surprising casting news to come out of Fifty Shades this week; singer Rita Ora will play Christian’s sister, Mia!
‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’: First On-Set Photos
The first on-set photos of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie hit the web earlier this week, revealing Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in all their Christian-and-Anastasia glory. Photographers snapped them filming a scene at a café, and although both actors totally looked their parts, Jamie didn’t seem too thrilled to have prying cameras in his face.
