Big News! Rihanna plays famous role of Marion Crane for ‘Bates Motel’ final season

Big News!!! A&E network series “Bates Motel” has added GRAMMY Award winner Rihanna (@rihanna) to its 5th and final season. The music icon takes on the famous role of Marion Crane, originally played by Janet Leigh in the film “Psycho” on which “Bates” was crafted. Leigh earned a Golden GlobeBest Supporting Actress” Award for her portrayal of the character. Leigh’s work on the film “Pyscho” of which Bates is built, earned her an Academy Award nomination as well.

I dare say that Marion Crane is the most memorable character of the entire film aside from Norman Bates, and I’m excited to see how Rihanna delivers in this role.

How did Rihanna check in to Bates?

The entertainer revealed she was a big fan of the show via a Vanity Fair cover story. The show powers that be, Cuse and A&E reached out to Rihanna with an offer via her agency WME and bang; there you have it! Bates is Rihanna’s largest acting role thus far.

Rihanna shared her excitement with a video clip from her home; apologizing for the lighting in her bedroom!
