Family: Dakota is daughter of Hollywood couple Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith and granddaughter of Tippi Hedren.
Debut Role: Crazy in Alabama (1999)
Early Career: Even though she got her debut in 1999 it would be eleven years before she got her next acting role. It was in Oscar winning ‘The Social Network’ before following up with teen romance film ‘Beastly’. Joining on for two films that did the festival rounds ‘For Ellen’ and ‘Goats’, before returning to small parts in bigger films ’21 Jump Street’ and ‘The Five-Year Engagement’. Entering into television was the next choice she made and sitcom ‘Ben and Kate’ gave her a lead role, but it only lasted one season. In 2014 we got a range of films, first up we had comedy ‘Date and Switch’, followed by video game adaptation ‘Need for Speed’ and action crime thriller ‘Cymbeline’.
It would be fair to say she is ready to break out and just maybe 2015 could be her year especially with ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film coming out. She is the future star, remember the name, but come on let’s see her do horror.
