Dude calm down, the role doesn't really require much acting chops. She gets behind a curtain and gets killed off. Nothing hasn't been shot yet and people are already prosecuting the casting. They are trying to make the show more modern and appeal to a younger crowd. Plus it's the final season. Not like you will be seeing her again in the show.

Rihanna's acting is actually quite good, this news is exciting! Maybe a little star power will get this overlooked gem some much needed attention in its final season.
