Executive summary: The Piano and X-Men

Anna Paquin was born in Winnipeg, Canada, but her family moved to New Zealand when she was 4. She was 9 when she played mute Holly Hunter's daughter (and furiously articulate voice) in the overwrought sexual-angst-cum-metaphoric-frenzy The Piano, winning an Oscar. After The Piano, Paquin grew up in a long succession of films. In Fly Away Home, Paquin played foster mom to some Canadian goslings. In HurlyBurly, she played a homeless teen, trading sex for shelter. In A Walk on the Moon, she played Diane Lane and Liev Schreiber's hippie daughter, swept away by Woodstock. In Buffalo Soldiers she bedded Joaquin Phoenix. In her most famous roles, she played the mutant Rogue in the X-Men movies, and the telepathic Sookie Stackhouse on HBO's True Blood.

[1] Came out as bi while participating in a 2010 public service campaign for gender equality: "I'm Anna Paquin. I'm bisexual and I give a damn".
