DAKOTA BLUE RICHARDS was born in London in 1994. When her mother named her Dakota Blue, she couldn't have imagined the impact that name would have just over a decade later when she was cast in the leading role of Lyra in The Golden Compass.

Richards was a fan of Philip Pullman's books and her mother read His Dark Materials to her when she was nine. She also saw the National Theatre production in London and told her mother that she wanted to be Lyra, the fiercely loyal and high-spirited heroine of The Golden Compass.

She lives with her mother in Sussex, on the south coast of England. The Golden Compass marks her feature film acting debut.
