Katie Cassidy is a huge fan-favorite for the role of Kate Kavanagh in the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie, and fans could get a view why she will play the part well in her recent fashion at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.
The 26-year-old "Arrow" actress wore a stunning pink Zuhair Murad dress with simple black Christian Louboutin heels and a matching patent leather clutch. Her flawless makeup made us think of Kate's fierce attitude in E.L. James' popular erotic novel.
Cassidy has been also named for the role of 22-year-old Ana Steele. Hollywood Life reported that the "Gossip Girl" star is a "likely choice" for Ana, but most people think she's better as the vivacious Kate.
Kate is Anastasia Steele's tenacious best friend and roommate with green eyes, strawberry blonde hair, and said to be "articulate, strong, persuasive, and argumentative." She is a journalist that couldn't make it to interview Christian Grey, which is how Ana met him. She also has a curvaceous body.
The Stir said: Katie's got a rep for playing assertive, bold, sexually self-assured, and all-around "not that innocent" characters. To put it in Sex and the City terms, she's much more Samantha than Charlotte. And we all know Ana's basically supposed to be a virginal prude -- at least in the first book. Hence whoever plays her needs to be able to play naive, and Katie's not the woman for that job.
Celebuzz said that Cassidy is "feisty enough to play the gorgeous part" of Kate.
Back in 2012, Cassidy spoke on the rumors of playing Ana.
"I've read the book, it's great and it would be unbelievable to play her (Ana)... even if it is a little risqué... I don't think the film would offend as many people as maybe the book has," explained Cassidy in an interview with the Daily Mail.
So it's good that Cassidy has read the books in case she does want to audition for the important role.
Other actresses that are fan-favorites for Kate include Emma Stone, Blake Lively, Diana Agron, Minka Kelly, Dakota Fanning, Nikki Reed, and Ashley Benson.
