Actress Sofia Vassilieva seemed somehow destined to play "Eloise" in ABC's upcoming telefilms based on the famed children's book series written by the late Kay Thompson, with illustrations by Hilary Knight.

In addition to bearing a striking resemblance to the precocious and lovable six-year-old character, American born Sofia is also as cosmopolitan as one can be: she speaks Russian and French fluently, and travels the world. By the age of six, Sofia had resided in four states and traveled in half of the United States, including Hawaii. And last, but not least, she has followed Eloise's adventures as she's visited Paris, Moscow, Rome, Vienna, Toronto and even Siberia.

It also seemed a rather destined event that Sofia's tenth birthday, October 22, fell on the same day of the nationwide release of he long awaited bok of her on-screen alter ego's latest adventure, "Eloise Takes a Bawth."

When Sofia was three years old, her parents encouraged her to pursue studies in ballet and later in piano and singing. She has danced in the theatrical productions of "Celtic Dances" at the Creative Dance School of Tucson, "Alice in Wonderland," "The Nutcracker" and "Pinocchio," at the Eugene School of Ballet, Oregon.

Sofia's acting talent was discovered two years ago at the International Modeling and Talent Association in New York, where she won the title of child actress and first runner-up child model of the year 2000. A year later she guest-starred in the series "The Agency." Most recently she played the role of Cindy Brady in the TV movie "The Brady Bunch in the White House," opposite Shelley Long, and appeared in the feature film "Inhabited," opposite Malcolm McDowell.

Sofia's other talents include gymnastics, in which, in a few months of training, she reached the silver level in the American Talent Opportunity program for gifted children. She also adores ice skating, swimming, diving, roller skating, biking and just playing outside with her friends.

Hannah Dakota Fanning was born on February 23, 1994 in Conyers, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, where her parents lived. She has a younger sister named Elle who was born April 9, 1998. Their father, Steve Fanning, was a baseball player for several minor league teams in the 1990's, but now works as an electrician and salesman. At a very young age Dakota showed an interest in acting and as she says she "got with a playhouse" which was her first contact with the world of professional acting. Soon after that she was featured in a Tide commercial and then made a television appearance on the hit TV series "ER" at the age of six, followed soon after that with an appearance on the Ally McBeal show as 5-year old Ally. Because of all the work that young Dakota was getting in the Los Angeles area, her family moved there from Georgia to live close to a relative who lived in the L.A. area. Appearances on the TV series Strong Medicine and C.S.I.: Crime Scene Investigations followed soon after.

Dakota won her first role in a feature film in the year 2000 as the daughter of a mentally handicapped man played by Sean Pean in the movie I Am Sam, and her performance was unanimously praised by the critics. When someone asked her how she was able to cry on cue for the camera, she replied that she thought about her goldfish who had died. She said that she could relate to the role because her aunt is mentally challenged, and cited an incident where her aunt said she couldn't come to Dakota's birthday party because she had to shave her legs. After her roles in I Am Sam and the teenager film Tomcats, she has appeared in such films as Trapped, Sweet Home Alabama, 24 Hours, Hansel and Gretl, Uptown Girls, The Cat in the Hat and Man on Fire. She is featured in the 20 hour Sci-Fi Channel miniseries Taken, both as the narrator in all 10 episodes, but also in the pivotal role of the part alien part human child Allie Keys. Other new roles were in The Cat in the Hat, Uptown Girls, Man on Fire and Hide and Seek.. Dakota's recent televison appearances, besides Taken, are in The Ellen Show, Malcolm in the Middle, and Spin City. Dakota has been interviewed on many day time and late night talk shows, such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Late Show with David Letterman.
