Anna Paquin’s Recent Struggles

Award-winning actress Anna Paquin made a stunning appearance on the red carpet for the New York screening of her latest film, A Bit of Light, directed by her husband and colleague Stephen Moyer. Despite ongoing health challenges affecting her mobility and speech, Paquin radiated grace and resilience as she walked with the assistance of a cane.

Paquin, known for her roles in acclaimed films such as The Piano and the X-Men series, has been navigating undisclosed health issues for the past two years. In a statement to PEOPLE, Paquin acknowledged the difficulties she has faced but expressed hope for a full recovery.

“I’ve been very lucky to do what I love,” Paquin shared. “My first love was independent filmmaking, and I’m grateful for every opportunity to tell stories with integrity and truth.”

Paquin’s collaboration with Moyer extends beyond the screen, with the couple joining forces on multiple projects, including A Bit of Light and the 2018 film The Parting Glass. In her latest role, Paquin portrays a complex character—a mother grappling with addiction and striving for redemption.

Reflecting on her partnership with Moyer, Paquin emphasized their mutual respect and shared artistic vision. “Stephen is my favorite person to collaborate with,” she remarked. “I wouldn’t work with him if he didn’t have the talent.”

Despite the challenges she faces, Paquin’s dedication to her craft and her resilience serve as an inspiration to fans and colleagues alike.
