In addition to working on her second album, partying at the Cannes Film Festival and dating Calvin Harris, Rita Ora will soon be seen on the big screen. The multi-talented singer scored a role in the highly anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, scheduled for release on February 13, 2015. “It was one of the best experiences of my life,” Rita told VH1 of her time on set. This is a woman who’s worked with J.Cole and Sia, so that’s pretty high praise.
As Mia Grey, the adopted sister of protagonist Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), Rita’s character is oblivious to her on-screen sibling’s dark side. “I’m obviously unaware of his fantasies and I love my brother and I support him,” she explained. With such a rabid fan base, expectations for the film are high. To help her prepare for what’s to come with promoting a major book to movie franchise, we looked to another beloved romantic trilogy: The Twilight Saga. (She might know her vampires from her werewolves, but her grasp on the Cullen extended family is another story.)
So who’s the Edward Cullen of Fifty Shades and why does costar Dakota Johnson’s face make her want to hum tunes from The Little Mermaid? See how Rita thinks her costars compare to the Twilight cast in the video above.
