About

Anna Paquin is a Canadian and New Zealand actress.

Born on July 24, 1982, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Raised in Wellington, New Zealand, Paquin’s early foray into acting was almost accidental. At age 11, she accompanied her sister to an audition and decided to try out herself, which led to her first film role and a remarkable start to her career.

Her debut in “The Piano” (1993), directed by Jane Campion, was critically acclaimed. Paquin played the role of Flora McGrath and won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her the second-youngest Oscar winner in history at the time. This early success set the stage for a varied and substantial acting career.

Following “The Piano,” Paquin maintained a steady presence in films and television. She appeared in “Fly Away Home” (1996), “Amistad” (1997), and “A Walk on the Moon” (1999). Her versatility as an actress was further showcased when she took on the role of Rogue in the “X-Men” series, beginning in 2000, bringing a significant comic book character to life.

Perhaps one of her most notable television roles was as Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO series “True Blood” (2008-2014), a performance that won her a Golden Globe Award in 2009. Her portrayal of the telepathic waitress in a world where vampires and humans coexist garnered her critical acclaim and a massive fan following.

In addition to her acting, Paquin has also ventured into producing. She co-founded the production company CASM Films with her husband, actor Stephen Moyer, and others. Paquin’s career is marked by a blend of critically acclaimed performances in both independent films and major Hollywood productions, showcasing her range and dedication to her craft.
