Anna Paquin, the daughter of two teachers who moved her to New Zealand when she was very young, auditioned at an opening casting call on a whim when she was 9. She beat out hundreds of kids for the role in Jane Campion’s “The Piano,” which wound up nabbing her an Academy Award at 11. She stepped out of the limelight to focus on school and life, but returned to the screen in 1996 in the title role of “Jane Eyre” and as a girl who adopts a flock of orphaned geese in “Fly Away Home.” The one-time Columbia University student went blockbuster as Rogue in three “X-Men” films (2000, 2003, 2006) but always found time for indies like “Hurlyburly,” “Almost Famous” and “Margaret.” She’s also found quite a bit of success on the small screen. She was nominated for an Emmy in 2007 for the miniseries “Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee” and picked up a Golden Globe in 2009 for her work as Sookie Stackhouse on HBO’s vampire series “True Blood.” In real life, the vegetarian married her costar Stephen “Vampire Bill” Moyer in 2010 and gave birth to twins, son Charlie and daughter Poppy, in September 2012.
