A Musical Background

During a recent interview with Blacktree tv, the actor admits that music gives him the confidence to face the camera. Dakota Beavers on landing this role admits pure that it was purely magical. The actor had never acted before, in any kind of movie or series. Out of almost nowhere, he received a vital role in a multi-million dollar project. His musical background was particularly helpful during the “Prey” audition.

Beaver’s Ethnic Background

Dakota Beavers is a native American. The mixed culture of Arizonian native, white and Chicano people has moulded his demeanour, helping him to act very naturally and neutrally in “Prey”. Talking about his Native American role in the film, Beavers says,

It was an honour for me, especially considering that we have Jhane who is a Comanche herself as our producer. She was there to make sure everything was portrayed accurately and it was an honour for me just that they had such a priority, especially this being my first film. Very, very honoured to be a part of it.

We wish him major success and hope he handles the spotlight well!
