Biography


Dakota Mayi Johnson was born on October 4, 1989 in Austin, Texas to actor parents Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. Later on establishing her own acting career, she was an avid dancer as a child and fell for modeling at age 12 after a photo shoot session with other celebrities' children for Teen Vogue. Upon graduating from high school, she was signed to the William Morris Agency and started her acting career immediately.

The 1999 "Crazy in Alabama" marked Johnson's film debut and she had since being billed to act in box office hit "The Social Network" and "Beastly". Having four major features in 2012 alone, it was the successful film version of the 1987 hit television show "21 Jump Street" and the romantic-comedy "The Five-Year Engagement" that helped catapult her to stardom. She, afterwards, landed parts in action film "Need for Speed" as Anita and as the lead role of Anastasia Steele in erotic/romantic drama "Fifty Shades of Grey".
