50 Shades Of Grey Movie: Anastasia’s Mum Is Cast

50 Shades Of Grey film bosses are rumoured to have added another big name to their prestigious cast list by assigning the role of Anastasia’s mum Carla to American actress Jennifer Ehle.

43-year-old Jennifer is by no means a newcomer to the Hollywood circuit, having already landed major roles in action-packed thrillers Zero Dark Thirty and Contagion.

But while you may not instantly recognise her name, you’ll definitely remember her from her BAFTA award-winning role as Elizabeth Bennet in 1995’s Pride And Prejudice movie where she was dreamily wooed by Colin Firth‘s hunky Mark Darcy… We knew we’d seen that face somewhere!

Jennifer will be swapping those 19th-century bodices for corsets of a very different kind if the rumours that she’s set to join director Sam Taylor-Johnson‘s most highly-anticipated cinematic saucefest are true.

According to Deadline, Ehle has been signed up to star alongside leads Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam the latter of whom has already been getting us extremey excited for his racy on-screen exploits.

We reckon she could make a pretty convincing Mama Steele. What do you think?
