The cast of the Fifty Shades franchise just got even hotter: Arielle Kebbel is signed on to play Christian Grey’s beautiful architect, Entertainment Weekly announced. Kebbel, who is known for her roles in shows like Ballers, The Vampire Diaries, 90201 and Gilmore Girls, will join the cast for the third film in the series, Fifty Shades Freed.

Her character, Gia Matteo, is a gorgeous architect whom Grey hires to build his home. Grey’s girlfriend, Anastasia Steele, calls her “Miss-Provocative-and-Unfortunately-Good-at-Her-Job.” The film is slated for release on February 9th, 2018, and it seems like Dakota Johnson is excited to start filming with Kebbel.

“SO happy to see @ArielleKebbel in #TeamFifty. Adored her so much in #TVD & 90201,” Johnson tweeted. Kebbel returned the enthusiasm, writing back, “Thank you! My character is spicy!”
