Rihanna has been cast as Marion Crane – the role made famous by Janet Leigh — in the fifth and final season of A&E’s “Bates Motel.”
That announcement marked the big news from the Comic Con panel for “Bates Motel,” eclipsing the news that Vera Farmiga would still be very present in the fifth and final season of the show (even though her character has been killed off) or that the fifth season would be its last.
After playing a video with Rihanna announcing the news, the biggest question was how this casting coup came about.
“I read this article in which she said she was a fan of “Bates Motel,” executive producer Carlton Cuse explained. “We asked and she said yes. It was awesome. We’re really excited about it. It really feels very much like the version of the character that is different from the movie.
In the film “Psycho,” which serves as the loose inspiration for the series, Marion Crane checks into the “Bates Motel,” where she has the misfortune of crossing paths with motel owner Norman Bates. Her shower scene — where she gets stabbed to death — has become one of film’s most iconic.
Cuse also said that the Marion character is one they wanted to make sure to include before wrapping the A&E series next year. “We wanted her to very much be her own character and we felt in order to do that we needed to find someone who was very, very special to play Marion.” Also on the panel with Cuse were executive producer Kerry Ehrin and stars Vera Farmiga (Norma), Freddie Highmore (Norman), Nestor Carbonell (Alex) and Max Thieriot (Dylan).
“Bates Motel” will begin production this fall in Vancouver and will return for a final season in 2017 on A&E.

Via Billboard: Rihanna was in Nice, France, during the Bastille Day attack Thursday (July 14), but her rep confirms to Billboard that “she’s safe.”
The singer is in the French Riviera city because she was scheduled to perform Friday night at the Allianz Stadium in Nice, France, as part of her Anti World Tour, though the president of Nice tweeted that the concert has been canceled, along with other events in the city.
Seventy-five people are dead and reports count up to 100 who have been injured after a truck drove on to the sidewalk and plowed through a crowd of revelers who had gathered to watch fireworks in the French resort city of Nice, France, on Thursday, in what officials and eyewitnesses described as a deliberate attack. The gathering was part of a celebration for Bastille Day, which is a French national holiday commemorating the storming of the Bastille and the unity of the French people.
UPDATE: Rihanna wrote on Instagram:
Due to the tragic events in #Nice, my concert scheduled for tomorrow July 15 at Allianz Stadium will not be going ahead as planned. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families 😢
Exclusively for the readers of Vogue.it: the backstage video (watch below) of the shooting of the Dior sunglasses collection starring Rihanna lensed by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino and an intimate interview with the singer of “Sledgehammer”.
Dior: Is it the first time you work with Jean-Baptiste Mondino ?
Rihanna: Yes, but he has been on the bucket list for a while.
Dior: What do you like the most about his way of taking photographs?
Rihanna: He’s fast, and gives incredibly precise direction.
Dior: What is the atmosphere on set?
Rihanna: He plays the BEST music on set, tons of old school R&B. Not once did I have to change the music.
Dior: Could you share an anecdote about this shooting?
Rihanna: This shoot was done under unique circumstances. I came straight from a show, spent a lot of time getting my weave taken out, but once we got to set no time was wasted. He knows exactly what he wants, and does not hold back his personality….which was delightful.
Dior: What is your personal relationship with the House’s creations?
Rihanna: It doesn’t get more personal than designing for this house. It’s an honor, and I STILL can’t believe that I’ve been given this opportunity.
Dior: Could you describe your news sunglasses?
Rihanna: They’re futuristic, yet sporty at the same time.
Dior: Can you tell us about your inspiration?
Rihanna: Believe it or not, La Forge from “Star Trek” back in the day! I’ve always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together.
Dior: What was the creation process with the Dior teams?
Rihanna: The process was pretty seamless. I spent a day at Dior with their eyewear design team. Started by looking through all the archives to see what they’ve done in the past, then got acquainted with all the new materials! I literally sat there drew, and drew until I was happy with the design, and the team illustrated it for me right then and there. We picked materials and colors that same day, and after that it was a matter of weeks before I saw the first prototype.
Dior: According to you, what is the best occasion to wear them?
Rihanna: All Summer Long, but de nitely whenever you want.
Dior: What could you hide behind your sunglasses?
Rihanna: What you’re thinking!… before it comes out of your mouth. Ha!
Dior & Rihanna sunglasses are available in stores and Dior.com.
