Los Angeles - Most fans of E.L. James's 50 Shades of Grey were obsessed with the casting of Charlie Hunnam as the elusive billionaire Christian Grey, but what about the role of the virginal college student Ana Steele?

Dakota Johnson, who is the third-generation in a family of actors, seems to be an unknown, but here are 7 reasons why you should definitely start to get to know her.

1) She looks adorable

She has the perfect look for a sexually-innocent Ana, as well as looking gorgeous.

2) But she still has an edge

3) It's in her genes

With a father as cool as Don Johnson who starred in Miami Vice and Nash Bridges and with Melanie Griffith as a mother who used to turn heads and break hearts, you know you won the lottery in the gene pool.
