Career of this young actress, who recently turned 20 years old, called the little lightning – such a career, Hollywood has ever seen.

Meteoric rise to stardom began to Anna and newspaper ads. It said about the casting for the role of a little girl Flora in Jane Campion film “The Piano”. Sister Anna Kate and some of her girlfriends are interested in this, Anna went with them only because she “had nothing to do at the moment.”
Jane Campion recalls that when Anna was the smallest and most modest of the five thousand girls who came to audition. “But when she spoke, I almost fell off the chair. Her story about why her mother Flora Ada McGrath lost her voice was amazing. I fully believe it. It’s such a rarity – find young talent having so strong instinct artistry!”
Ada McGrath played Holly Hunter. Little Anna tried hard to copy the style of play of the actress.

Others believed that the young actress with her boldness and depth of dark eyes really is a phenomenon that deserves special attention. Despite the fact that its role was minor, Flora scenario most words, because she had to translate around what I wanted to tell her mute mother.
Anna herself was numb for a few seconds, when she was invited to the stage in that memorable evening. She stood, literally Dumbfounded by surprise, and could not say a word. Looking around the room with wide eyes and breathing intermittently, young winner yet plucked up courage and said thank-you speech. She thanked Jane and Holly, who “made it all possible,” and do not forget those who helped her on the set. After that, she ran back to her place instead of going behind the scenes at a press conference. But then she still went to the conference room, where she waited for hundreds of journalists, and the question of what she feels, becoming the winner, said: “Well, it’s great!”
After the ceremony, Anna was not long delayed in the United States. The next day she visited an exhibition of works by Picasso in the Los Angeles gallery and went back to New Zealand, where her class was going to go hiking.
