Ora is best known as the chart-topping musician who scored a hit with “Hot Right Now,” is often compared to singer Rihanna, and recently had a cameo in Universal's Fast & Furious 6 (2013). She was handpicked to be the face of Madonna’s fashion line “Material Girl”, and will represent Rimmel for their 2014 campaign.

James posted a picture on set Sunday, Dec. 1 via Instagram captioned “Action!” marking the start of production.

Pictures of Dakota Johnson and Dornan filming scenes at a coffee shop soon surfaced after.

Fifty Shades of Grey will follow the racy relationship between college student (Johnson) and mysterious 27-year-old billionaire Grey (Dornan).

The film also stars Eloise Mumford, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle, and Max Martini.
