20 of Our Favorite YA Novels: Who Should Play the Lead?

Meghan Chase in The Iron King - Dakota Fanning

Dakota Fanning was one of the biggest child actresses in Hollywood, and is turning herself into one of the best adult ones out there just the same. She has been in everything from fantasy to family movies to serious adult drama, and is just the actress to play Meghan Chase in The Iron King. Meghan finds out one day that she's the daughter of a faery king, and ends up in the middle of a crazy magical war. Maybe somewhat familiar territory for Dakota, but she's good in everything!
