Role in Fast & Furious 6Edit

April of 2012, Prior to the announcement of Ora's casting, The Sun reported that Pop and R&B singer Rihanna would appear in Fast & Furious 6 as a villain.[3] Later that year, it was announced that Rita Ora had been cast in favor of Rihanna instead because of scheduling conflicts between the Fast & Furious 6 film and Rihanna's music video for "Diamonds".[4][5]

When discussing her role, Ora stated that the production was looking for someone to star their race sequence. "They needed a head girl [for] the girl drivers of London town," she said. "They asked me, 'Would you mind being the leader of the pack in London?'

"I was like, 'Of course, I'd love to'. And I think it summed up a great year for me, life kind of changed last year, so I did feel like a cool little leader when I was playing that role." She went to explain that she did not have time to prepare for stunts. She was also not aware of Rihanna was considered for the role she was given.[6]
