Paquin says she didn’t personally relate to her character Ella’s struggle with alcoholism, but as a mom, she understood the complexity of parenthood. She said it’s like sometimes society forgets that women are more than just moms. 

Furthermore, Paquin said women are fully formed individuals with their dreams and challenges. Hence, she’s bringing that perspective to her role in the movie. “Not everyone ends up having the journey with motherhood that they have hoped or had planned,” Paquin said.

“We’re all flawed and imperfect, and Ella is kind of, on some level, repeating some sort of familial patterns as far as stuffing feelings down.” She adds, “It’s very relatable because there’s so many ways that people can get in their way or sort of learn to cope with trauma.”

About Anna Paquin and Her Husband’s Journey

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer met while working on “True Blood.” The HBO show ran for seven seasons from 2008 to 2014. It was based on Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Mysteries, and Anna Paquin starred as Sookie Stackhouse.

In the movie, the waitress gets involved with a vampire (Moyer) in a world where supernatural creatures are real. These two on-screen lovers took their romance off-camera, too. It’s like a real-life love story happening behind the scenes.

Moyer is from Brentwood, Essex in England, and he spoke on “Watch What Happens Live” that they first met during a screen test for the show. The two got engaged in 2009 and tied the knot in 2010 at a private home in Malibu.

Amid the show’s run, though ironically, their characters’ relationship became increasingly strained in later seasons. She and her husband went on to welcome fraternal twins, daughter Poppy and son Charlie, in September 2012.
