Australian actress Bella Heathcote has been cast as Leila in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie sequel, Fifty Shades Darker.
E.L. James, author of the erotic romance books that inspired the film series, confirmed the news on Twitter Friday.
The Fifty Shades trilogy is about the BDSM-themed relationship between timid college graduate Anastastia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson, and psychologically damaged, handsome billionaire businessman Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan. Leila is one of Grey's "ex-subs," or ex-submissive lovers. The character resembles Steele and stalks her after suffering a mental breakdown.
