Rita Ora In ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

In the books by E.L. James, Mia is Christian and Elliot’s younger, adopted sister. This means that Rita will be spending a lot of time with Jamie and Luke Grimes, who was recently cast as Elliot. Rita will also join the recently cast Eloise Mumford as Anastasia’s friend, Kate; Victor Rasuk has José; Jennifer Ehle as Carle, Anastasia’s mother; and Max Martini as Christian’s bodyguard, Jason Taylor.
Rita Ora Perfect For Mia Grey
There’s many reasons Rita will be perfect for that part — it’s clear she has the body, but it actually goes even further than that!
Mia is fluent in french, took cooking lessons in Paris and plays the cello. Rita is originally from Yugoslavia, but has done a great deal of traveling herself. She’s also an extremely talented musician. She came out with her first album Ora in 2012, which produced two hits, “How We Do (Party)” and “R.I.P.” — and you know they’re both amazing jams.
So HollywoodLifers — do you think Rita will play a good Mia Grey? Let us know!
