One thought on “Actor Profile: Dafne Keen Fernández

  1. She is so cute and confident! And wise in the way she acts. It is hard to ignore how obviously cute she is. I want to adopt her. She’d be like “I already have a family”
    I’d be like “Sorry, you are doing great!” I was mature as a child too perhaps. But I was very shy! So no one would ever know it lol.
