Dakota Fanning: Starring in 'Effie'

Dakota Fanning has her next project lined up!

The 17-year-old actress will play the title role of Effie, a biopic penned by Emma Thompson about the unfortunate marriage between Euphemia Gray (Fanning) and the famed critic John Ruskin in 1850s London.

Effie’s husband never consummated the marriage over five years and the young girl fell in love with Ruskin’s protégé, painter John Everett Millais. Greg Wise and Tom Sturridge also star in the film.

Dakota is currently shooting Now Is Good in London with Kaya Scodelario and Jeremy Irvine.

    Love the countenance and prefer the long hair.

    Great–a serious dramatic role in an adult themed movie, and, IMO, a very good prelude for Dakota’s adult roles of the future. This would be enough, but she’s also getting a chance to work (again) with UK film makers–an important opportunity for Dakota. There’s more: she’ll star with Emma Thompson who is an Academy Award winner for best actress! Thompson also scripted and stared in Sense and Sensibility, which scored 98% at Rotten Tomatoes. Good goin’ Dakota!
