Carrie-Anne Moss

Carrie-Anne Moss has become one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood. Following the release of The Matrix, Moss was snapped up by some of Hollywood's most prominent producers for starring roles in four films.

First, audiences saw her star opposite Burt Reynolds and Richard Dreyfuss in the mobster comedy The Crew, for producers Barry Sonnenfeld and Barry Josephson. Then they saw her star with Val Kilmer in Red Planet, for producer Mark Canton. She then co-starred opposite Juliette Binoche, Johnny Depp and Dame Judi Dench in the Oscar-nominated film Chocolat, for director Lasse Hallstrond producer David Brown. Next she starred with Guy Pearce in the critically acclaimed independent thriller Memento, for which she earned an Independent Spirit Award for her performance.

Last year, Moss reprised her role as Trinity, in The Matrix: Reloaded and Revolutions, once again teaming with Keanu Reeves and Lawrence Fishburne. Next year, she will be seen in the Arie Posin film tentatively titled, The Chumscrubber, an ensemble independent feature co-starring Ralph Fiennes, Rita Wilson and Glenn Close.

Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Moss graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, after which she enjoyed a successful modeling career, landing jobs in Toronto, Japan and Spain and appearing on many international magazine covers. While working in Spain, she landed a regular role in the television series Dark Justice, which was produced in Barcelona the first season. Moving back to Los Angeles, Moss landed a starring role in the popular Aaron Spelling TV series Models Inc., and she has enjoyed a strong career in entertainment ever since.
