Anna Paquin is coming home! The Manitoba native will star in the new CBC drama, Bellevue.
The Oscar-winning actress is set to play Annie Ryder, a “brilliant and complex detective,” according to a press release about the show, which starts shooting in Montreal this fall.
It definitely won’t be as steamy as True Blood – it’s the CBC, not HBO – but she’ll have a very handsome leading man by her side. Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech plays her on-again, off-again love interest.
If we could only convince Alexander Skarsgard and Paquin’s real-life hubby, Stephen Moyer, to guest star, then life would be complete.
Bellevue airs in winter 2017.
