Elle Fanning says The Nightingale is completely a sisters story’
‘The Nightingale’ actor Elle Fanning says she wanted to work with her sister Dakota for a long time and is glad that it is finally happening with their upcoming film The Nightingale.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Elle explained why she considers The Nightingale as her first film with Dakota. They previously featured in Sean Penn-starrer I Am Sam but did not share the screen space with each other.
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,” the 22-year-old actor said.
The star said it was “exciting and special” to find a script that enabled them to star together.
“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.”
Elle said, “We haven’t shot it yet, so that’s the thing. We were about to go shoot and then everything happened, so it was kind put to a halt and I know as much as you”.
