Dakota Fanning Biography

Birthdate: February 23, 1994
Birthplace: Conyers, GA
Birthname: Hannah Dakota Fanning


Dakota Fanning - Child Star

She may only be 11 years old, but Dakota Fanning has more acting experience under her belt than most peeps twice her age. It was apparent from a very young age that Dakota wasn't like the other kids. She learned to read when she was just two years old, and would put on elaborate skits at home for her parents - including one where she would pretend to give birth to her baby sister! At the suggestion of some friends, Dakota's parents took her out to LA to see if she was suited to be a film star.


Dakota Fanning - Movie Star Maven

From the time that Dakota made her movie debut in the flick Tomcats, she hasn't slowed down. In 2001, Dakota wowed the world as Sean Penn's daughter in I Am Sam, which earned her a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination and a Broadcast Film Critics Association award for Best Young Actor! All this and she was just eight years old. She's since been featured in a ton of big flicks like Uptown Girls with Brittany Murphy and Cat in the Hat, alongside funnyman Mike Myers. 2005 is going to be another big year for Dakota Fanning, who you can catch in Hide and Seek, Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds and her latest flick, Dreamer - due in theaters October 21, 2005!

Dakota Fanning Says...

"Acting is what I love to do. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I don't think of it as work. It's really fun for me. And home-schooling works out perfectly."
"I like everything perfect. Everything has to be neat. My sister is 5, and she's more messy than I am. I make my bed every morning, everything's perfect. My shoes are all arranged. It's sad."

Hi there! I am Rose, (If you have somehow not seen me around so far) an avid writer and roleplayer here on KW. I've recently realized that I love critique. It's one of my favorite things to do and receive. And not so recently, I realized there's a lot of OCs that need improvement out there.  Like a lot. It's kind of scary. So I've decided to start reviewing these OCs, both the good and the bad. But as always, I have some standards.  I will review OCS from these fandoms: Dr. Who Undertale Danganronpa RWBY  Soul Eater Warrior Cats Hunger Games Divergent Harry Potter Vocaloid Black Butler MLP (Yes I am a bit of a closet brony shh don't tell anyone) Ava's Demon (Although I doubt anyone knows what this is) Percy Jackson Adventure Time Steven Universe Gravity Falls 99% of Disney Attack On Titan Touhou Avatar (The four elements and stuff not the weird blue people.) Pokemans Original Works Ask me if I review anything that isnt on this list. But before people start freaking out, I do not review LOTR, Supernatural, Narnia, or Sherlock.  Please put your character in an RP style form including name, personality, backstory, and any fandom specific info. If your character is in one of the fandoms listed go ahead and post right away. I will respond ASAP with how you can improve your OC and a general rating. Be prepared for criticism. Well, go ahead and start posting your OCs!

Disney is good in my opinion but I feel like each time I watch a disney movie that it just don't want to make me watch it again. Like when I was younger I would watch my favorite disney movie a billion times but now I can barely make it through watching the same movie/episode twice.
