What has actress Anna Paquin done since she portrayed Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood? Paquin played the main character for all seven seasons of the hit HBO series based on the novels by Charlaine Harris until it ended in 2014.
Paquin began her career as a child actress in the early 1990s. Her feature film debut came in 1993 with The Piano, which it garnered her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress at just 11-years old (the second youngest in history). Paquin then went on to appear in a number of theatre productions and movies. Her most popular portrayal was her role as Rogue in the original X-Men trilogy. Shortly after, Paquin was cast in her first TV project, True Blood. Her role as the telepathic waitress would introduce and endear the actress to a wider audience.
Paquin's seven years working on True Blood didn't stop appearing in other projects. Between 2008 and 2014, the actress starred in a number of films including Scream 4, Margaret, Straight A's, and Free Ride. She reprised her role as Rogue for 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past, but the bulk of her role was cut from the theatrical release (it was later added to what was known as "The Rogue Cut"). In this time, Paquin also married True Blood co-star, Stephen Moyer, and the pair had two children.
In the years that followed True Blood, Paquin worked on only a handful of films. She voiced Ramsey in the 2015 Pixar film, The Good Dinosaur. Then in 2018, she appeared in Furlough and Tell It to the Bees, a drama film set in 1950s Scotland.
Paquin has appeared on a number of TV shows after her time on True Blood. She appeared on the Roots remake in 2016 before she was cast in the Canadian crime drama, Bellevue, the following year. In 2017, she was also seen in Alias Grace and the Amazon series, Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams. More recently, Paquin starred as the main character for the UK dramedy, Flack.
The former True Blood actress currently stars in Showtime's popular drama series, The Affair. She joined show's fifth season to portray the adult version of the Joanie Lockhart character. Paquin was reportedly set to star and produce the HBO miniseries, Madame X, but production has since stalled. The actress will, however, appear in Martin Scorsese's upcoming crime epic, The Irishman. Paquin will be seen alongside a stellar cast that includes Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and Bobby Cannavale.
