Anna Paquin, a beloved actress known for her powerful performances in films and TV shows alike, attended the red carpet premiere of her newest project, A Bit of Light, directed by her husband and former True Blood costar Stephen Moyer. Despite health challenges affecting her mobility and speech over the past two years, Paquin was determined to be there for the film’s debut.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Paquin opened up about her struggles and expressed hope for a full recovery. She also shared that it has been challenging but rewarding to continue working on projects she loves. As an independent filmmaker at heart, she emphasized the importance of storytelling with integrity and truth.

Paquin’s acting career began at a young age when she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in The Piano at just 11 years old. Since then, she has continued to excel in various roles, including her iconic portrayal of Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood.

Aside from their work together on True Blood and Flack, A Bit of Light is Paquin and Moyer’s second collaboration. The film follows Paquin’s character as she battles alcoholism and the loss of custody of her children. Despite their personal relationship, Paquin said that when working with Moyer, it’s all business – no sentimental attachment or favoritism involved.

When asked about what drew them to this particular project, Paquin praised Moyer’s talent and skills as a director. She said that if he didn’t have what it takes to make this film special, she wouldn’t collaborate with him again. Overall, Paquin remains committed to creating art that resonates with audiences while staying true to herself as an artist.”
