Fifty Shades of Grey Fans, Meet Your Kate Kavanagh: Eloise Mumford

Blockbuster-to-be Fifty Shades of Grey finally found its perfect Kate Kavanagh in up-and-coming actress Eloise Mumford. She will play protagonist Anastasia Steele's friend and roommate. Perky, well-off, and an aspiring journalist, Kavanagh's also infamous for making men "tongue-tied." While Mumford has a lot of fans' expectations to live up to, she shows diamond-in-the-rough potential, previously starring in Fox’s short-lived Lone Star and, more recently, the indie feature Drones. The Tisch drama graduate joins Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, and Luke Grimes (who will play her boyfriend, Elliot Grey) in the cast, and, though she's a relative newcomer, we suspect — much like Blake Lively's illustrious Gossip Girl moment — she'll be a name and face to watch starting...well, now!
