Rita Ora says she is a huge fan of the iconic novelist Charles Dickens.

Ora plays Dodge, a female incarnation of the Artful Dodger, in "Twist", which is a new take on Dickens' "Oliver Twist". She was delighted to get the role as she is a "book nerd" and loves the works of Dickens.

"I am a big Charles Dickens fan. I actually love reading, I know people don't know that about me but I am a bit of a book nerd," Ora said, according to a report in contactmusic.com.

She stars alongside Michael Caine, who plays Fagin in the Martin Owen film. She shared how much she appreciates the way that the acting legend works.
