Anna Helene Paquin is a Canadian-born New Zealand film, television and theatre actress.
There are very few films or plays or anything about really happy people with perfect lives. Everyone is usually screwed up in some way and that is usually where the work comes in – figuring out how to make it believable and make it real to present someone’s problems that you don’t necessarily actually know anything about. I mean it is not challenging to be happy all the time. I don’t think I could do it!
I just do what feels right. I think the great thing about getting to do what I do is that you can try out being a different person without having to screw up your life to do it.
I’m not very political. I’m also not American and I don’t get to vote so my feelings are not really relevant.
