FROM : <a href='http://www.scifi.com/scifiwire2005/index.php?category=0&id=30153' target='_blank'>SCIFI.COM</a><br /><br />Young actress Dakota Fanning, co-star of Steven Spielberg's upcoming SF epic War of the Worlds, told SCI FI Wire that she is enjoying playing Tom Cruise's daughter in the film, based on the H.G. Wells classic SF book. "[Tom] is so incredibly nice, and Steven is incredibly nice," Fanning said in an interview. "That movie comes out on June 29th, and I think it's wonderful." <br /><br />Fanning, who turns 11 next month, said that the producers approached her to appear in War of the Worlds while she filmed Dreamer, in which she plays the daughter of Kurt Russell's washed-up horse trainer. Fanning is also no stranger to Spielberg or aliens, having appeared in SCI FI Channel's miniseries Taken, the UFO saga that Spielberg executive produced. <br /><br />"I read the script [for War of the Worlds] and just really liked it," Fanning said. “I was doing Dreamer when I read the script. They really wanted me to do it, and I wanted to do it really bad." Fanning declined to discuss the film's plot, but admitted that she plays Cruise's daughter. "You'll have to see," she said. "It's really exciting, and it's going to be really, really good. That's all I can say. It's a secret." <br /><br />Fanning said that she thrills at the prospect of doing another science fiction film, but doesn't want to limit herself to one genre. "I've been lucky enough to get a taste of different kinds [of films]: sci-fi, ... comedy, drama, the thriller type," Fanning said. "I love doing all of them. I've never really picked one [genre], because I've gotten the chance to do all sorts of different characters, and I've heard it just grows, as you get older and older. It's exciting for me to get to see what comes on next." War of the Worlds opens in theaters June 29.

I actually quite admire Fanning. She's frighteningly talented for someone so young. My only concern is that she's had so much success at such a very early age - she's not in her teens yet, and she's sharing top billing with De Niro!<br /><br />I just hope her parents keep her grounded and let her enjoy being a kid. Hopefully, she'll avoid the fate that Hollywood seems to reserve for most child stars - namely, ending up as a cokehead has-been before she's in her twenties.<br /><br />

Fanning is the very incarnation of all thats wrong with this version - made up character, central to the made up family angle. In fact she's as far away is it gets from this story.<br /><br />I dont dislike her at all though, im sure shes a very nice child, and of the cast shes the one i dont blame for (probably) having not read the book, unlike the no excuse case of Cruise
