Mary Elle Fanning aka Elle Fanning’s dream is finally coming true. The actress who is best known for her portrayal of Aurora in Maleficent series is glad that she’s finally getting to collaborate with the actress she always wanted to work with.
Elle Fanning had always dreamt of collaborating with none other than her actress sister, Dakota Fanning and it’s finally becoming a reality with The Nightingale. The film based on Kristin Hannah’s 2015 novel of the same name, will be helmed by Melania Laurent. Slated for next year’s release, the film will narrate the lives of two sisters and their struggle of survival. It will have a backdrop of World War II.
Both Elle and Dakota worked previously in I Am Sam but the former doesn’t consider it as their first collaboration. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she said, “Technically, in I Am Sam, I played her (Dakota) at a younger age, so we weren’t really acting together and I was so young, so yeah, this is the first.”
Elle further expressed her excitement of working with her sister by quoting, “I have been looking for something for so long. It is completely a sisters story, that’s the heart of it. Your sister knows you more than anyone. She can sniff anything out of you, she can push your buttons more than anybody. It’s like that dynamic is so special and unique, you’re family more than anybody. That’s the closest, she is my closest person.”
