About Dakota Fanning
Name: Hannah Dakota Fanning
DOB: 23, February 1994
Birth Place: Conyers, Georgia, USA
Height: 4' 6"
Dakota, home-schooled by her parents, has a teacher who is always with her during filming. The 11-year-old actress, whose favorite movie is Gone With the Wind and favorite actors are Meryl Streep and Hilary Swank, is off-screen, just like any other kid. She loves to play with friends, collect dolls, ride horses, read American history and take ballet.
Dakota learned to read at age 2. At the age of 8, she became the youngest person to be nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award, for her supporting performance in I Am Sam (2001).
When she received the Best Young Actor/Actress award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association for her performance in I Am Sam (2001), she was too short to reach the microphone to give her acceptance speech. Presenter Orlando Bloom held her up to the mike for the duration of her speech, which turned out to be quite long.
