Remember when Anna Paquin gave an Oscar speech that everyone loved?

The second youngest person to ever win an Oscar, Anna Paquin celebrates her 35th birthday today.

Born in 1982 in Manitoba and raised in New Zealand, Paquin famously played Sookie Stackhouse for a bunch of seasons on True Blood.


Paquin also played Rogue in some X-Men movies.

Unrelated (unless you imagine they're singing about Anna Paquin), The Zombies released "She's Not There" on this day in 1965. And it's an incredible song.

So if you bump into Anna Paquin today, wish her all the best and sing her a few bars, won't you?

Tomorrow: The X-Files, Later.
