Hannah Dakota Fanning was born on February 23, 1994, in Conyers, Georgia. Growing up, Dakota Fanning lived with her parents and her younger sister, Elle — who was also an actress. After Fanning graduated from North Hollywood’s Campbell Hall Episcopal High School, she was ready for her next big chapter in her life.
Currently, she is enrolled at New York University, where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in women’s studies at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study in Soho. While at the same time, her next sensational film, Ocean’s 8, was just released on Friday, June 8.
When Fanning was five-years-old, she made one thing clear: It was time for her to get her career started. So she guest starred in the NBC prime-time drama ER. Believe it or not, that was one of her favorite roles as an actress. Really? Yes.
Other noteworthy television shows she appeared in were CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, The Practice, and Spin City. Then the moment finally came for Fanning. In 2001, she starred in her first film, I am Sam, and she will definitely write down that movie in her journal. What for? She won the Best Young Actor/Actress award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association for her performance. Impressive.
Two years later, she was in two prominent films, Uptown Girls, and in the hilarious The Cat in the Hat. In addition, she did some voice-over work for four animated projects that included — playing a little girl in Family Guy and a young Wonder Woman in the episode, “Kids Stuff,” from Justice League Unlimited.
Throughout her childhood, she continued to star in top-notch movies like Man on Fire, War of the Worlds, Charlotte’s Web, and Hounddog. Then, the rising actress witnessed something great. At 12, she was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, becoming the youngest member in the Academy’s history. But bigger than that, she was ranked fourth in Forbes list of being one of the top-earning stars under 21 years-old. Isn’t that something?
As a teenager, Fanning filmed in the film adaption of The Secret Life of Bees, soon after that, she took a sharp turn away from being in drama movies. And? Now, she saw herself in a ‘hot’ movie — that was The Twilight Saga: Eclipse — which grossed $709 million worldwide becoming the biggest single-day opening in domestic history. Holy cow!
While Fanning continued to act in many more movies while growing up as an adult, the next big thing came for her. Fanning was ecstatic to be joining the cast of a movie franchise. And there was something special and unique about this specific film. It is an all-female cast. Most importantly, though, the film is set to be the best in the franchise.
So what is the name of this film?
Ocean’s 8. It was just released on Friday, June 8.
