We’ll soon see if acting is indeed in Dakota Johnson‘s blood. Her patriarch entourage includes Antonio Banderas and if she ever wants to do television she can ask her father Don Johnson for cues, but when your grandmother is named Tippi Hedren, your mother is Melanie Griffith, I guess your choice in career paths is predestined. After playing alongside her mother in 1999’s Crazy in Alabama and not touching film for a good decade, now she is taking on a range of supporting and lead parts that could push her towards an indie actress career with the occasional paycheck roles on the side.
Commencing in October, we’ll see her in David Fincher’s The Social Network and 2011 becomes her break out year. The filmography for Dakota includes the tween friendly part in Daniel Barnz’s Beastly, with a better range of parts to be found in So Yong Kim’s For Ellen and Larry Clark’s Savage Innocent.
