Who Is Anna Paquin

Anna Helene Paquin was born in Canada to Mary, an English teacher from New Zealand, and Brian, a gym teacher. Her family relocated to New Zealand when she was four, where she spent the majority of her youth. Anna had no plans to become an actress until she was cast by chance in The Piano. She had tagged along with her sister to an open audition posted in a local newspaper, and the nine-year-old caught director Jane Campion’s attention. The 1993 drama was lauded by critics and went on to win three Academy Awards, including a Best Supporting Actress prize for Paquin. She became the second youngest Oscar winner in history — a title still held by Tatum O’Neal, who was just a few months younger when she won for Paper Moon in 1973.

We calculate Anna Paquin has a net worth of about $15 million dollars, as of 2021.

Why Is She So Famous?

Anna Paquin won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar when she was just 11 years old for her role in The Piano. But the cute Kiwi is all grown up and you can see a lot more of her as a vampire-loving telepath on HBO’s True Blood.

When Anna Paquin first entered the public spectrum, she was just a little girl, standing at the Oscar podium accepting the award for Best Supporting Actress at the age of 11. We saw her again as an energy-sucking teen mutant in X-Men a few years later, playing alongside James McAvoy. But she shattered any residual images of the sweet, innocent kid we once knew when she bared it all as a telepathic waitress who makes the vampires swoon in True Blood. Per episode the Anna’s salary is $275,000 making her one of the highest paying actresses on TV.

Anna still had no intentions of actively pursuing an acting career, but she was constantly hounded with offers and ended up starring in two more films when she was 14 — Jane Eyre and Fly Away Home. By then, her parents had divorced and she moved with her mother to Los Angeles, where she was a straight-A student and got accepted to Columbia University in 2000. That same year, she got another big film break when she starred in the comic franchise X-Men.

She had continued balancing acting with studying throughout high school, working on several films, but she left college after one year to act in theater. She also starred in two X-Men sequels and an HBO miniseries, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, which earned her Golden Globe and Emmy nominations.

In 2008, she landed her first television series role in True Blood as Sookie Stackhouse, a waitress with supernatural abilities who falls in love with a vampire — a role that won her a Best Actress in a Television Drama Golden Globe. Soon after the show premiered, she revealed that she was in a real life relationship with her onscreen lover, Stephen Moyer. They became engaged in 2009. In April 2010, her personal life got attention again when she came out as a bisexual in a PSA for gay rights.
