Fanning said: “She definitely takes pleasure in using her power which is inflicting pain on others, which is not a normal thing! So yeah it was cool to get to transform myself into more of an evil character which I haven’t done before.”

The teen star also confesses acting is the only career for her, although she would like to continue with her education alongside film commitments.

She said: “I do want to go to college, I want to be able to act and go to college at the same time. But it is absolutely what I want to do with the rest of my life. I can’t imagine doing anything else. It’s what I love."

Discussing her dream collaborations, Dakota claims Jodie Foster is a big inspiration for her due to her career longevity.

She told website NY1: “I’ve always wanted to work with Jodie Foster, I really admire because just because she’s started young and she’s continued and it’s just something I want to do. I want to constantly challenge myself. I hope by the end of my life I’ve been able to do all genres."
