Rita Ora Cast in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ Is New Face of Rimmel
Rita Ora is going ‘Grey.’
She can add another acting role to her resume. The singer and Material Girl and DKNY spokesmodel has been cast as Mia, the adopted younger sister of Christian Grey in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ according to The Wrap, which grabbed the news from a source close to the production.
Ora had a cameo in ‘Fast and Furious 6,’ a role that Rihanna was in the running for.
The film is due to hit multiplexes on Feb. 13, 2015 and it’s already buzzing well over a year ahead of its release, so this is just another career booster for Rita Ora, who has racked up the No. 1s in the U.K. but has yet to break through in the U.S. She tweeted the big news today.
In other Ora news, the singer is also launching her capsule collection for British makeup brand Rimmel in February of next year. She is offering up lip and nail products, which make sense, since the ‘How We Do’ singer is known for her red-painted mouth and head-turning manis.
