American actress who was chosen out of 2,500 young girls to play the sexually precocious 12-year-old lead in a film remake of Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita." The book came out in 1955, scandalous at that time and ever since. Stanley Kubrick filmed the story in 1962 with 14-year-old Sue Lyon as the child seductress and James Mason as the besotted adult, a role played in this version by Jeremy Lyons.
Swain, 16 at the time of filming, had zero prior acting credits but has since played John Travolta's daughter in "Face-Off," 1997. "Lolita" opened in Los Angeles on 7/15/1998.
The daughter of an electrical engineer, with a sister who is older by one year, Alexis, and one who is three years younger, Chelsea, Swain also has a step-brother and step-sister from her dad's first marriage. An A student, she has wanted to act from the time she was seven. Her upbringing in Malibu has been pleasant with soccer, sculpture and pop music.

People magazine 8/17/1998 quotes her dad, David, that he floored his Datsun along the Santa Monica freeway, desperate to get his wife Cindy to the hospital, but the baby had other ideas. "I was high noon, and we pulled over, and I delivered my daughter."
