Anna Paquin – The Real Vampire Hunter

Anna Paquin’s Lifestory

Many will remember Anna Paquin as the mutant Rogue in the X-Men franchise that started its run in 2000. However, her very first casting took her straight to the top, winning an Academy Award in 1993 for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in The Piano. This 19th-century drama saw her playing opposite Holly Hunter, Harvey Keitel, and Sam Neill, and from there, she was heading for the stars. Amongst her other iconic roles, she played the lead in the hugely popular True Blood from 2008–2014, taking home numerous accolades including Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Drama Series, three Saturn Awards, and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Born in Canada, Paquin’s mom, Mary, was an English teacher from New Zealand, while Brian, her dad, was a high school teacher from Canada. She had an older brother, Andrew and a sister, Katya, and when she was four the whole family moved to New Zealand. Paquin was a very active child, enjoying gymnastics, ballet and playing the piano.

Her parents divorced in 1995, and Paquin moved back to America with her mother. Living in LA, she attended the Windward School, and went on to study at Columbia University, before dropping out to pursue her acting career.

In 2009, Paquin and her co-star in True Blood, Stephen Moyer became engaged after dating since the start of the series in 2007.
