Pop star Rita Ora has been cast in a supporting role in the highly anticipated sex drama Fifty Shades of Grey.

Sam Taylor-Johnson’s adaptation of EL James’ bestselling novel about a kinky billionaire who hires a blushing virgin to be his well-renumerated sex slave has just begun shooting in Vancouver after months of delays. Rita becomes one of the final members of the cast: she will play Mia, the adopted younger sister of Jamie Dornan’s male lead, Christian Grey.

The singer, best known for her hit Hot Right Now, previously acted in the 2004 British film Spivs and had a cameo in this year’s Fast and Furious 6.

In the bestselling books by James, Mia Grey is the adopted daughter of Carrick Grey and Dr Grace Trevelyan Grey, and adopted younger sister of brothers Christian and Elliot Grey. She is described as bubbly and outgoing, is fluent in French, plays the cello, and studied cooking in Paris.

Ora said on Twitter
: “It’s official! I’ve been cast in @FiftyShades of Grey as Christian’s sister Mia.”

As well as Dornan’s Christian, Ora joins Dakota Johnson as blushing virgin Anastasia Steele, and fellow castmembers Eloise Mumford, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle and Max Martini. Fifty Shades of Grey is expected to be the first in a trilogy based on James’ triptych of books, which have sold more than 90m copies worldwide.
