Anna Paquin is working through an undisclosed health issue. The 41-year-old actress and mother of two attended a New York screening of her film, A Bit of Light, on Wednesday at the Crosby Street Hotel holding a black cane. 

Paquin was all smiles at the event, rocking a black mini-dress and posing with her husband, Stephen Moyer, who directed the film. 

Paquin didn’t share the exact reason for her cane, but did tell People, “It hasn’t been easy.”

The outlet shares that Paquin needs a cane to walk and has some difficulties with speech, though a source told the outlet that the actress is expected to make a full recovery.

A Bit of Light marked Moyer’s fourth time directing his wife. The 2022 film follows Ella (Paquin), a woman who moves back in with her father after she loses custody of her two children. 

Moyer also directed Paquin in the 2018 film, The Parting Glass. Additionally he directed two episodes of Paquin’s 2020 series, Flack, as well as three episodes of True Blood — the vampire series where the couple first met. 

In 2021, Paquin told ET of Moyer, “He’s a very gifted director, and I’m not just saying that because I’m his wife. He wouldn’t have been asked to direct if he wasn’t brilliant.”

As for a return to the hit franchise where they first met, both Moyer and Paquin are open to going back to the True Blood world.

“I would love, love, love, love to see all of these people again and work with them again,” Moyer told ET in 2021. 

“It’s some of the best years of my life,” Paquin added. “I’d kick down the door to get to work with any of those people again.”

“But, spoiler alert, my character doesn’t make it,” Moyer, who played vampire Bill Compton to Paquin’s Sookie Stackhouse, shared. “I’m up for a flashback. I’m officially telling you, on ET, I’m up for a flashback.”

Paquin and Moyer married in 2010 and welcomed twins Charlie and Poppy in 2012. Moyer also has two kids from a previous relationship.
