Anna Paquin to play de­tec­tive

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - TIME OUT -

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.
