Anna Paquin – The Piano (1993)

The second youngest ever Oscar winner after Tatum O’Neal, Anna Paquin didn’t rest on her laurels after bagging her gong as a kid. The Canadian-born New Zealander’s résumé boasts plenty of big movies including: Jane Eyre, Fly Away Home, the X-Men series, Amistad and Almost Famous. Paquin appeared as the improbably-named Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s wildly successful vampire series, True Blood. She’s currently filming The Irishman with Martin Scorsese.
