Dafne Keen was an instant escape as Laura Kinney, the mini mutant in the 2017 Logan movie. While the film was a strong farewell to Hugh Jackman’s interpretation of Wolverine, which signaled the end of the mutant, Keen thrilled many fans with her magical portrayal as Logan’s heiress.
After this phenomenal performance, she was ready to take all the big chances she was offered. And did they come? Yes, quite a few of them. And she grabbed all of them, including Ana, who she is filming right now. In an adaptation of His Dark Materials, she will play the lead role in her own contemporary franchise. Join me on this amazing journey of discovery as we explore the story of this child prodigy.
Who is Dafne Keen? Age
The prodigy named Dafne Keen Fernández was born sometime in 2005 as the son of a British father, Will Keen Keen, and a Spanish mother, María Fernández Ache. She has a fairly good command of both languages, which has helped her conquer the role of Latina mutant at the age of ten years ago, in addition to her martial arts and acrobatic skills. At that time she was only 11 years old and was mostly mute on the set, but when she spoke, it was a flood of fiery short bursts of Spanish.
Her parents are both in show business, so she quickly got used to the screens at a young age. Before her 10th birthday, Dafne had already made her screen debut. By her 10th birthday, Dafne had already made her screen debut. In the television series The Refugees in 2014, she appeared alongside her father as Ana “Ani” Cruz Oliver during the eight episodes of the single season.
In 2017 she made her film debut with an epoch-making role as the mutant child of the wolverine mutant X-23 alias Laura Kinney in the Marvel superhero movie Logan. The 2017 film is the tenth installment in the X-Men film series and has been hailed by critics as the best superhero movie ever. The blockbuster was also a commercial success with 600 million dollars in box offices worldwide.
Although it was a fitting ending for the icon Wolverine, Jackman’s character, the wild newcomer Dafne appears as the star and has left us with a lot to explore as the new potential Wolverine. In addition, Patrick Stewart, who resumed his role as leader Professor Charles Xavier, and film director James Mangold were full of praise for the child mutant, who Mangold described as a remarkable child and method actor of 11 years.
In addition to the many accolades, Keen received a number of nominations, including the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards for Best Young Actor, the Chicago Film Critics Association for Most Promising Actor, and the Houston Film Critics Society 2018 for Best Supporting Actress. She also won the Empire Awards for Best Emerging Female Actress and the MTV Movie & TV Awards for Best Duo, along with Hugh Jackman.
Having inherited Wolverine’s intensity and explosiveness, not to mention her sick fighting skills, she is ready to take the stage for her own supernatural franchise. She is preparing for an eight-part adaptation of the Philip Pullman trilogy, the Oscar-winning trilogy His Dark Materials by director Tom Hooper. In it, she would portray the heroine Lyra, an orphan girl who slips into a parallel universe and finds supernatural friends. The series would also feature Lin-Manuel Miranda as Lyra’s friend, the airship woman Lee Scoresby.
Dafne Keen’s Parents
The starlet comes from a family of actors and has proven that she is her father’s daughter. Her father is a British actor known as Thomas Cranmer in the British television series Wolf Hall and Michael Adeane in Netflix’ The Crown, while her mother is a Spanish actress, theater director, and writer. She is credited with her role in the British gangster film Anti-Social (2015), which starred Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex.
Her other relatives also achieved fame, including her great-grandfather on her father’s side, Edward Curzon, 6th Earl Howe.
Earl Howe. That her daughter has achieved celebrity status in the entertainment industry is a sacrifice worth making. While auditioning for her role as Laura, the Keens helped her track down Shane and Mangold’s 2005 biopic on Johnny Cash Walk the Line, both of which influenced the category R violent film.
The actress, who is 4’11”, loves acting, ballet, singing, and acrobatics, and she is also an award-winning gymnast.
