Rihanna joins the cast of Bates Motel series as the character Marion, taking over from late movie Icon, Janet Leigh.
If you ever wondered what Bad Girl Riri’s acting skills is, don’t wonder far as she will be making her appearance in the show’s fifth and final season.
Plus, there has been news of an actual shower part, so, those interested can finally see Rihanna go nude, just as she likes it, ie if they don’t take that part off the script. That is highly unlikely seeing as Riri has no reservations in showing a little skin, or a lot of it anyway.
The announcement was made during the show’s Comic-Con 2016 panel, with Riri revealing the information herself.
She said, “Yes, hello Comic-Con. It’s your girl RiRi. And let me tell you what a bad bitch is about to do. I’m about to check in to the Bates Motel very soon.”
“And guess what else. Guess who’s playing Marion. Yes, so all you Comic-Con fans, all you Bates Motel fans, stay tuned!”, the You Needed Me singer added.
This piece of information was gladly received by Rihanna and Comic-con fans as executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin said in a statement, “We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way. “
“We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate”, the statement concluded.
Bates Motel which returns for its fifth and final season in 2017 on A&E had Janet Leigh play the original character of Marion in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. Leigh died in October 3, 2004.
The Barbados starlet is taking over from Janet and we can’t wait to see what Riri has in store for us with her acting skills.
