This week's Rule 5 started young.
Dominique Ariane Swain (born August 12, 1980) is an American actress and producer. She is best known for her roles as the title character in the 1997 film adaptation of Lolita, and as Sean Archer's daughter, Jamie, in the action-thriller Face/Off (1997). She worked predominantly in independent films throughout the late 90s and early 2000s.
Swain was born on August 12, 1980 in Malibu, California, the daughter of Cindy (née Fitzgerald) and David Swain, Sr., an electrical engineer. . . . Swain grew up in Malibu where she attended Malibu High School, and enjoyed playing sports, making art, and listening to music. Swain excelled at learning, earning straight A's and becoming valedictorian like her sister before her.
Swain started her career in Hollywood as a stunt double; she appeared as the double for Macaulay Culkin's younger sister Quinn in Joseph Ruben's The Good Son (1993). In 1995, at the age of 15, she was chosen out of 2,500 girls to play the title role of Dolores "Lolita" Haze in Adrian Lyne's controversial 1997 screen adaptation of Lolita. She was 15 during filming and her performance was praised by critics. She later then played the rebellious teen Jamie Archer in John Woo's Face/Off (1997). She starred in the 1998 drama film Girl, in which she plays a high-schooler who is determined to lose her virginity. . . .
In 2001, at the age of 21, Swain posed nude for PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur" campaign.
