Rita Ora (born Rita Sahatçiu 26.11.90) is a pop singer from London who rose to fame after featuring on DJ Fresh's number one single 'Hot Right Now'.
Musical career: Rita Ora's first professional venture was singing on Craig David's song 'Awkward' in 2007. She soon followed that with an appearance on Tinchy Stryder's 'Where's Your Love' and a brief spell on James Morrison's albu 'Songs for You'. In 2009, she signed with Jay-Z's Roc Nation label and in 2012 appeared on DJ Fresh's number one hit 'Hot Right Now'. 2012 also saw her release her debut album 'Ora', featuring singles 'How We Do (Party)' and 'R.I.P.' feat. Tinie Tempah. The album was produced by Chase & Status and she supported it with a US headline tour. She also embarked on a UK tour following the release of final single 'Radioactive'. In 2014, she release the lead single from her second album. 'I Will Never Let You Down' was produced by Calvin Harris and reached number one in the UK. That year she also appeared on Iggy Azalea's single 'Black Widow'.
Personal life: Rita Ora entered the world in Pristina, SFR Yugoslavia (now called Kosovo) but was raised in London by her psychiatrist mother Vera and pub landlord father Besnik. Her father added 'Ora' to the family name to make pronunciation simpler. Having always wanted a career in performing arts, she went to Sylvia Young Theatre School and St Charles Catholic Sixth Form College. Though not especially religious, Ora has admitted her belief in God. There were early rumours surrounding a relationship with Bruno Mars, though she dated Calvin Harris from 2013 to 2014. She began dating rapper Ricky Hill in 2014.

When Ana and Christian had their first fateful meeting, neither party knew much about the real person they were meeting. Christian didn't know just how naive Ana really was and Ana didn't quite understand just how dark Christian's thoughts ran. Though from completely different backgrounds and living entirely different lives, the pair were attracted to one another and they began a relationship - one mainly brought about after Christian seducing Ana, his latest younger woman. As dark secrets were uncovered, it became known to Ana that Christian was into BDSM. Still wishing to go ahead with the relationship, Ana finds out just how far Christian is willing to go to get his thrills but realises that she can't be with a man who inflicts that level of pain on someone they care about.
Time passes, Christian continues with his business lifestyle and Ana starts a new job at a publishing house and the former lovers reunite whilst at an exhibition of photography put on by one of Ana's friends. Christian begins to realise that his feelings for Ana run deeper than the usual dominant / submissive roles that usually define his relationships. With Ana now setting the rules, the pair begin a true relationship but as stories about Christian's past are revealed and Ana is introduced to some of the women that involve his past, neither party know exactly how they'll make their relationship work without sacrificing certain aspects.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson reprise their roles as Christian and Ana respectively. Kim Basinger is introduced to the plot as Elena Lincoln a lady Ana nicknames Mrs. Robinson after learning that she seduced Christian whilst still of a young age. Whilst Rookie Blue actor Eric Johnson is cast as Jack Hyde and Bella Heathcote as Leila Williams.
