Now that she’s conquered music, Rita Ora is ready to make her mark in Hollywood. The “R.I.P.” singer has joined the cast of the erotic drama Fifty Shades of Grey.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ora will play Mia, the adopted younger sister of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
An excited Ora shared the news with her fans on Twitter. “It’s official! I’ve been cast in @FiftyShades of Grey as Christian’s sister Mia. #FiftyShades,” she tweeted.
Universal’s adaptation of E L James’ best-selling novel also stars Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, a naive college student who falls for a billionaire, who introduces her to his world of S&M. The movie began shooting today in Vancouver, Canada.
Ora’s previous acting credits include a role in the British film Spivs and a cameo in Fast & Furious 6.
In August 2012, she released her debut ORA in the U.K. and is currently in the studio working on her sophomore album, due next spring.
