'Fifty Shades' Casting: Rita Ora Weighs in On 'Darker' & 'Freed' Sequels

After taking on a bit role as Mia Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, Rita Ora is eager to appear in the sequels -- but the singer has yet to receive a formal offer. EL James, are you listening?


Ora seems to be a double threat these days. The 24-year-old British singer and songwriter, who was also a judge on The X Factor, has been getting her feet wet in Hollywood lately and even scored a small role as a drug addict in the upcoming film Southpaw with Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal.

But Fifty Shades is a story that is close to her heart. While appearing on British show Lorraine, she reportedly said:

I'm a massive fan of the books. My character, Mia Grey, very much evolves in two and three slowly but surely so if they do ask me, of course I will be there!

Mia is Christian Grey's adopted younger sister who falls for Ethan Kavanagh and is the victim of a kidnapping. She plays more of a role in Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, which means there's little chance the movie's producers won't be sending Ora a script sometime soon.

Ora only had four lines in Fifty Shades, but her presence was electric (and she looked amazing in her black-bob wig). It's possible she has some learning to do when it comes to acting (and why wouldn't she? She's a newbie — no shame there) but I really do hope producers give her another shot at the role. I have high hopes for her.

Do you think Rita Ora should take on the role of Mia Grey in the sequels or is there another actress you'd like to see play the part?
