Anna Paquin: Career

While living in New Zealand, Paquin's sister responded to an advert in the newspaper about an open audition for Jane Campion's 'The Piano'. This inspired Anna to audition as well, and led her to land the role in the film, out of 5000 candidates. Her performance earned her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of eleven, making her the second youngest to earn an Oscar.

Paquin did not intend to continue acting, and continued to reject offered for roles, with the exception of a number of mobile phone adverts. She returned to acting in 1996, appearing in the films 'Jane Eyre' and 'Fly Away Home', before working on 'A Walk on the Moon', 'Amistad', 'Hurlyburly', 'She's All That' and 'Almost Famous' as a teenager.

In 2008, she appeared in her first television role in the HBO series, 'True Blood'. In 2010, she appeared as a cameo in the film 'Scream 4'. She then appeared in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' in 2014. Her role was significantly cut down for the theatrical release due to editing restrictions, and it was said she had 'essentially a cameo'.
