Dakota Fanning dons a long brunette wig as she starts filming on Effie in Greenwich in London on Tuesday afternoon (October 25).
The 17-year-old stars as the title character in the movie about her doomed marriage to art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) in 1840â€™s London.
Despite her beauty, Ruskin didnâ€™t consummate the marriage and the devastated Effie eventually fell in love with Ruskinâ€™s protÃ©gÃ©, painter John Everett Milias (Tom Sturridge).
Penned by Emma Thompson, she also stars in the movie as Lady Eastlake, the woman who takes the suffering Effie under her wing.
