Anna Paquin (born July 24, 1982) is the star of several major motion pictures, including her first Oscar winning performance in The Piano (1993), the role of the young Jane in the 1996 film Jane Eyre (1996), and the role of Amy Alden in the charming family film, Fly Away Home (1996). With a well-developed vocabulary and gentle sense of humor, Paquin proves herself to be the most enchanting young talent working today.

Paquin's rising stardom has often been a cause of charming media shyness, where it is obvious that she is an ordinary girl who happens to posses an extraordinary talent. She has two agents, Gail Cowan in New Zealand, and the William Morris agency in Los Angeles, but neither these nor her parents have much influence in deciding what she films. "In the end", she says, "it's my decision". Paquin's parents separated while she was filming Fly Away Home (1996) in Canada. On Oscar night in 1993, Anna Paquin was the surprise (and surprised) winner of the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She stood, wide-eyed and gulping for breath at the microphone for a full twenty-something-odd seconds before delivering a gracious, though rather breathless thank-you speech.

  • Has a brother, 'Andrew Paquin' (qv), a film producer, with whom she is working on _Blue State (2007)_ (qv)), and a sister, Katya.
  • Though she was born in Canada she considers herself a Kiwi from New Zealand since she grew up there.
  • She still hasn't seen all of _The Piano (1993)_ (qv).
  • She was the original choice to play the character of Enola in 'Kevin Costner' (qv)'s _Waterworld (1995)_ (qv) but, eventually, the role fell to 'Tina Majorino' (qv).
  • Hobbies: rugby; running; playing the piano; singing; gymnastics; swimming; downhill skiing; reading and knitting.
  • She keeps her Oscar in her bedroom closet so her friends won't see it and feel the need to comment on it.
  • Graduated from Windward School in West Los Angeles, California in June 2000; she completed the school's community service requirement by working in an LA soup kitchen and at a special education center.
  • Speaks French.
