Elle Fanning

MINI BIO

Date of Birth: April 9th 1998

American child actress. She is the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning.

Fanning began her acting career by playing the younger version of Dakota Fanning's characters in both the mini series, Taken and the movie, I am Sam.

In 2002, at the age of four, Fanning won her first role independent of her sister, in the comedy Daddy Day Care. In 2003, Fanning filmed The Door in the Floor opposite Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger. Anecdotal evidence of her young skill was seen in the decision to cast her in the role of Ruth in The Door in the Floor. The film's producers had originally planned to hire identical twins for the intense shooting schedule, but were so impressed with Fanning that they used only her.

Late in 2003, Fanning filmed Because of Winn Dixie in the small role of Sweetie Pie Thomas. Late in 2004, Fanning filmed I Want Someone To Eat Cheese With. In early 2005, Fanning filmed scenes in Charlotte's Web as the "future granddaughter" of Fern Arable played by Dakota Fanning. These scenes did not make the final cut, however.

In mid 2005, Fanning played Debbie, the daughter of Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett in the academy-award nominated film Babel. In early 2006 Fanning filmed scenes in both The Nines and Deja Vu. In mid 2006 she filmed The Lost Room a sci-fi TV mini-series.
