Dominique Swain Biography

Born in her father's Datsun on the Santa Monica freeway, Dominique Adrian Swain was born on August 12, 1980. She grew up in Malibu with her parents and four siblings, living a modest lifestyle and enduring the usual teenage humiliations of crooked teeth and catty classmates at Malibu High School. Swain excelled at learning, earning straight A's and becoming Valedictorian. Then, in her sophomore year, Swain's life took a famous turn. Swain had already officially launched her Hollywood career as a stunt double; she appeared under the ice as Macaulay Culkin's younger sister in Joseph Ruben's The Good Son (1993), then almost nabbed the role of "Claudia" in Interview with the Vampire (1994). But it was in 1997, when Swain was just fourteen, that she was chosen out of 2,500 girls to play the title role in Adrian Lyne's controversial remake of Lolita (the film couldn't pin down an American distributor and was only released in Europe). Snapping her gum and flouncing around Jeremy Irons' besotted Humbert Humbert, Swain was critically praised for adding a contemporary feel to the sensual, bratty Dolores "Lolita" Haze, and for delivering a remarkable performance opposite seasoned actors Jeremy Irons and Melanie Griffith.
