Anna Paquin to play detective
Actor Anna Paquin (above) is all set to take on the role of a detective in a new crime series, Bellevue.
The 35-year-old is coming back to the small screen as a series regular, after appearing in cult fantasy show True Blood (which ran from 2008-2014), reported Contact Music.
Paquin, who became a child star at the age of 11, winning an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for The Piano (1993), now plays a detective who sets out to solve the mystery behind the disappearance of a transgender teenager, while dealing with her personal demons. The show will premiere in early 2018.
According to the character sketch, the detective, Annie Ryder, has an intense and brazen personality that’s at odds with the primness of this small town, where a lot of blue-collar folk ‘live right’ and take it upon themselves to make sure t hat the neighbours live right, too.
Her investigation forces Ryder to look suspiciously at people she has known all her life. She is also confronted by a mysterious person from her past.
