The recently released Fifty Shades Darker trailer undeniably made many fans excited for its release next year. And while fans still need to wait for a couple of months, talks about the highly anticipated movie do not seem to end.

Based on the trailer, it looks like the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel is going to be bigger than the first film. Fans have also seen new faces, particularly that of Bella Heathcote. Those who have already seen the trailer would agree that her character seems mysterious.

Heathcote is most popularly known for her performance in Dark Shadows. In the said movie, the Australian actress had the chance to work with Johnny Depp. Heathcote is undeniably pretty, a face that the majority would remember.

Now several fans are delighted to see her in Fifty Shades Darker trailer. She was picked for the role of Leila Williams. Williams happens to be Christian Grey?s ex-girlfriend. And there is one thing that she and Anastasia Steele have in common. Both women were submissive to the desires of Mr. Grey.

Leila Williams Will Be Dangerous?

Williams appears not just mysterious, but seemingly dangerous as well. It also seemed like she is out of her mind. There was a point when she was watching Grey and Steele sleeping together. And when the latter noticed her, she just disappeared.

Reports claim that Williams basically stalks Steele in the upcoming film. She has the ability to vanish into thin air. Many think that Heathcote is perfect for her role. She has porcelain skin that could make her look ghostly. You can actually be forgiven if you thought she was a ghost when you have first seen her in the Fifty Shades Darker trailer. It?s safe to say that the character is really meant to be a mystery.

Aside from this, Heathcote has also played the role of a murderous model in The Neon Demon. The actress could be well-equipped with the necessary skill needed to portray darker roles well.

Be sure to keep an eye on Heathcote when the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel premieres. Fifty Shades Darker is slated to air on February 9, 2017.
