Jennifer Ehle Joins Fifty Shades Of Grey
She'll be Anastasia Steele's mother

Jennifer Ehle

Now that Fifty Shades Of Grey director Sam Taylor Wood and her producers have tracked down their willing victims leading man and lady in Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson, they’re starting to fill out the rest of the cast. Jennifer Ehle is the first aboard, signing on to play Anastasia Steele’s mother, Carla.

Fifty Shades Of Grey sees the young and virginal Steele (Johnson) fall headlong for the charms of billionaire twentysomething Christian Grey (Hunnam), who is really quite into bondage and sadomasochistic sex. He asks her to sign a contract to become his submissive; she thinks about it; they get it on. A lot.

Carla is described as a tough, take-no-sass Southern belle who is married to her fourth husband. In case you’re still wondering what all the fuss is about, allow us to point you towards our primer.

Kelly Marcel, who wrote the upcoming Saving Mr. Banks (out November 29 in the UK), adapted E.L. James’ fan-fiction-turned-mega-selling trilogy, which means we’re practically contractually obliged to tell you that Saving Mr. Spanks… sorry, Fifty Shades Of Grey is set to arrive on August 1, 2014.
