"This is the family business", he said. "This is what we do, and I am absolutely certain that Dakota will take a piece of material and a character which a lot of people might imagine could be inappropriate in some ways and turn it into something spectacular."

Don went on to express his hope that Fifty Shades will open the door for a number of further roles for Dakota.

"Speaking like a proud father and a seasoned professional, I can tell you that she is a gifted, gifted actress and this will just be one part in a long line of tremendous performances in her career."

The first promotional image of Dakota as Ana was released in February.
