Anna Pacquin Battles Through Mobility Issues For ‘A Bit Of Light’ Red Carpet


Anna Pacquin is battling an undisclosed illness that is hampering her mobility.

On Wednesday, the actress walked the red carpet using a cane for assistance. She was with her husband, Stephen Moyer, at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York City for their latest film, A Bit of Light.

“It hasn’t been easy,” Pacquin said to People of needing a cane to walk and experiencing some difficulties with her speech.

Despite the physical issues, Paquin is grateful to still be working.

“My first love was independent filmmaking,” said Paquin. “That’s how I entered the film industry. I was working with people who were all about telling stories and telling them with integrity and truth.”

Paquin was directed by husband Moyer in the indie drama, which is based on a stage play.

A Bit of Light stars Paquin as an alcoholic mother who loses custody of her children and has to pick up the pieces of her broken life while reconciling with her past.

She said as a mom she understood that parenthood can be complex, and that women can often be forgotten as fully formed people once they become mothers.

“Not everyone ends up having the journey with motherhood that they have hoped or had planned,” Paquin says. “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 added, “It’s very relatable because there’s so many ways that people can get in their own way, or sort of learn to cope with trauma.”

A Bit of Light is in theaters Friday, April 5.

t’s been a “difficult” two years for Anna Paquin, who has been dealing with undisclosed health issues that have left her with mobility issues.

On Wednesday, April 3, the actress, 41, walked the red carpet with her husband Stephen Moyer at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York City for their latest film, A Bit of Light, using a cane for assistance.

“It hasn’t been easy,” the New Zealand-raised star tells PEOPLE of needing a cane to walk and experiencing some difficulties with her speech. (A source clarifies that the actress will hopefully make a full recovery.)
