Discussing Dakota Johnson Biography and Filmography

Well, Dakota Johnson is a famous American actress who is most notable with her role in the erotic slash romantic movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. This Texas-born actress was born on 4th October 1989 in Austin. Being in a family full of notable artists, her career path began since she was only ten years old. Her first debut movie, Crazy in Alabama, was said to be directed by none other than her stepfather, a professional Spanish actor-producer Antonio Banderas.

However, there was no continuation of her career after the release of the movie. It was years later, after her high school graduation, she picked up the path she left by signing with one of the longest-running agencies, WME. Previously, she tried her luck with beauty pageants and the result left her with a title of Miss Golden Globe 2006. With this success, she signed for a model agency in the same year.
