 Dakota Johnson Biography

Dakota Johnson is an actress and model known for starring as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades film series.

She was born in Austin, Texas, and is the daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. Her maternal grandmother is actress Tippi Hedren. In 1999, she made her film debut in Crazy in Alabama, where she and her half-sister, Stella Banderas, played the daughters to their real-life mother, Melanie Griffith. The film was directed by her stepfather, Antonio Banderas, but it wasn't a hit.

Johnson resumed her schooling and waited several years before she decided to become a professional actress and model. In 2006, she was voted Miss Golden Globe, a launching pad bestowed on off-spring of famous parents. She served as the first second-generation Miss Golden Globe in the Globes' history, since her mother was Miss Golden Globe in 1975. She also signed with IMG Models. In 2009, she modeled for MANGO brand's jeans line. Johnson traveled to Sydney, Australia, where she shot the "Rising Star" campaign for the fashion label, "Wish." Once she graduated from high school, she signed with the William Morris Agency and started her acting career. She had her first box office hit in 2010 with David Fincher's film, The Social Network, in which she had a scene with Justin Timberlake. The film received eight Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture.

She had roles in several 2012 films: Christopher Neil's film, Goats, with David Duchovny; Nicholas Stoller's film, The Five-Year Engagement, for producer Judd Apatow, and the hit feature film version of the 1987 television show, "21 Jump Street," that made Johnny Depp a star. She also won the female lead in Chris Nelson's film Date and Switch. Her first television show, "Ben and Kate," in which she played Kate, aired on Fox during the Fall 2012 season. It was canceled in 2013, and she quickly resumed her feature film career with three high-profile films -- Need for Speed, the modern-day adaptation of the William Shakespeare play Cymbeline, and the starring role of Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of the best-selling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

Johnson went on to star in the two sequel films, 2017's Fifty Shades Darker and 2018's Fifty Shades Freed.

Following Fifty Shades, Johnson appeared in the biographical crime film Black Mass (2015) and Luca Guadagnino's drama A Bigger Splash (2015). She reunited with Guadagnino, portraying the lead role in Suspiria (2018), a supernatural horror film based on the 1977 film by Dario Argento. That same year, she appeared in an ensemble cast in the thriller film Bad Times at the El Royale (2018).

In 2019, Johnson had a starring role in the psychological horror film Wounds and the comedy-drama film The Peanut Butter Falcon.
