Gabby   —   Interviews Please Stand By

Dakota has given InStyle an interview about her upcoming film Please Stand By, which is out now in select theaters and on demand. The original article can be found here, and you may read it below.

Dakota Fanning has always been wise beyond her years. The blond-haired, doe-eyed actress got her first major role at the ripe age of 7 in 2004’s I Am Sam. Her performance as the precocious child of a developmentally challenged father (Sean Penn) earned her a SAG Award nomination the following year, making her the youngest nominee in history.

Now 23, Fanning shows no signs of slowing down. She currently stars as a police secretary on TNT’s period drama The Alienist and has a new film, Please Stand By, about an autistic woman who escapes from her group home to submit her Star Trek script to a Hollywood writing competition, arriving in theaters and on demand today. The latter was something of a-full circle moment for Fanning, as the subject matter paralleled the project that cemented her status as a leading actress. Here, Fanning discusses her new movie, learning to speak Klingon, and the need for female-focused stories.

What drew you to this script? It was so well-written and so moving. [Wendy] had so many quirks: her love of Star Trek, knitting, her dog … there were so many little things that were woven into her. Most importantly, the character didn’t lead with the fact that she was on the autism spectrum. There were so many other things that were more important about her.

Entertainment Weekly has released the very first trailer for Dakota’s upcoming movie Please Stand By! It is a very comprehensive trailer, mind you. Their website is a pain to get embed codes from and impossible to get screen captures, so we got the video from a Youtube channel instead. We’ve added screen captures from it to our gallery, as well as the first official poster.
