In addition to her awards-caliber performances detailed below, ’90s moviegoers might also remember Anna Paquin from Cameron Crowe’s Almost Famous. Remember when her character accidentally spilled the beans that the young reporter (Patrick Fugit) was holed up in a hotel room full of women — by shouting out her need for “coffee!”

The Oscar-winning, Canadian-born New Zealand actress can do comedy, horror, drama and more — and we can’t wait to see what’s next for Paquin. In the meantime, here’s a closer look at her best performances to date.

Ever wonder what the real story is behind those celebrity gossip columns? Flack has all the dirt, centering on four quick-witted and relentless publicists (led by Paquin) who are tasked to make the best of their celebrity clients’ terrible decisions. Paquin is dynamite in both seasons as a cocaine-addicted publicist with a poor tendency to cause destruction to her personal life, along with those around her. We hope to see her in a third season, as folks in the entertainment industry can surely relate to the Hollywood-type crises Paquin’s Robin deals with every day.

This beloved family film follows 13-year-old Amy (Paquin), whose mom’s death leads her to Canada to live with her father (Jeff Daniels), an eccentric inventor she barely knows. She is miserable in her new life — that is, until she discovers a nest of goose eggs that were abandoned when developers began tearing up a local forest. Fly Away Home is inspired by real-life experiences of Bill Lishman — who trained Canadian geese in the ’80s to follow his ultralight aircraft — as well as Dr. William J.L. Sladen, a British-born zoologist who, per Washington Post, aided Lishman with the migration. Following the success of Jane Campion’s The Piano, Paquin continued her ’90s hot streak with Fly Away Home.

The original X-Men live-action film will always hold a special place in fans’ hearts due to its dark, edgy nature that isn’t often seen in Marvel movies today. Bryan Singer’s hit film follows Wolverine (a dynamite Hugh Jackman) joining the X-Men after Magneto (Ian McKellen) attempts to attack him and a young mutant named Rogue (Paquin). Magneto is assisted by the Brotherhood, which includes Mystique (Rebecca Romijn) and Sabertooth. More than 20 years later, cinephiles still credit the first X-Men movie for opening the superhero floodgates. Paquin’s scenes with Jackman are a hoot to watch, as she brings a genuine heart to the film’s otherworldly nature.
