Elle Fanning, who celebrated her 5th birthday during the filming of The Door in The Floor, is already a veteran of movies and television. She is the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning.

At age 2, the Conyers, Georgia native appeared as the younger version of her older sister’s character in Jessie Nelson’s I Am Sam. The Fanning sisters again played the same character at different ages in Taken, the Emmy Award-winning epic SciFi Channel miniseries.

Ms. Fanning recently costarred in Steve Carr’s hit comedy Daddy Day Care, and appeared in episodes of the popular TV series Judging Amy and CSI: Miami.

In her next film project, Wayne Wang’s Because of Winn-Dixie, she stars alongside Jeff Daniels, Dave Matthews, Eva Marie Saint, Cicely Tyson, and AnnaSophia Robb.
