WRITING UNIT 5
Dakota Johnson is an actress that is 25 years old. She was born in Austin Texas USA and is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. She’s part of a family that has always been involved in film making. She has always danced since she was a child and she became interested in modelling at 12.
Her debut was as a child in the film Crazy in Alabama which was directed by her stepfather Antonio Banderas and she and her half-sister stared in the roles of daughters to their real life mother Melanie Griffith. Seven years later she was chosen as Miss Golden Globe when she was 18.
When she graduated from high school she started to work for the William Morris Agency and her acting career began. She was very lucky because her first film as an adult was a big box office success it was called The Social Network. She starred in several successful films such, The Five-year Engagement, For Ellen and 21 Jump Street.
In 2015 Johnson played Anastasia Steele in Fifty shades of Grey, which was based on the New York bestseller of the same name.
She has had the advantage of belonging to a family which helped her a lot in her acting career, but she’s also recognised as being a good actress in her own right. She is only 25 years old and I hope that she has a long and successful career.
