Don Johnson believes Fifty Shades of Grey will be just the beginning a series of major roles for his daughter Dakota.

"This is the family business", the 64-year-old actor told Good Morning Britain. "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."  

The actor expressed his certainty that her playing Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades will be the start of a glittering career for 24-year old Dakota, whose mother is the actress Melanie Griffith.  

"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."
