Carrie-Anne Moss is a Canadian actress known for her roles in Memento, Chocolat and The Matrix trilogy. Born in British Columbia on August 21, 1967, Moss was named after The Hollies' 1967 hit song, "Carrie-Anne." She joined the Vancouver children's musical theatre at the tender age of 11 and later went on to tour Europe with the Magee Secondary School Choir in her senior year. Seven years later, she left Vancouver for Toronto to become a model, a career that led her to Japan and Spain.
While in Spain, Carrie-Anne Moss made her first television appearance as she landed the role of Tara McDonald on the drama series Dark Justice. She was then cast as one of the models on FOX’s short-lived primetime soap opera, Models Inc., which was a spin-off of Melrose Place. But her breakthrough role came as she was chosen to play a computer hacker named Trinity in the 1999 box office hit The Matrix, for which earned a Golden Slate Award for the Best Actress category and several nominations from various award-giving bodies. She then reprised her infamous role in two sequels as well as providing voice-overs for the video game and animated spin-offs of the film.
Shortly after the successful release of The Matrix, Carrie-Anne Moss was offered numerous projects by some of Hollywood’s most prominent producers. She first took on the role of Detective Olivia Neal in the 2000 Disney mobster comedy The Crew, in which she starred alongside Burt Reynolds and Richard Dreyfuss. In the same year, she appeared opposite Val Kilmer in Red Planet, and then worked with Juliette Binoche, Johnny Depp and Dame Judi Dench in Miramax's Oscar-nominated film Chocolat. She also graced the critically acclaimed independent thriller Memento for which she earned an Independent Spirit Award for her performance.
