Quote: "I won't play another character like her [Trinity],
out of respect to her and out of respect to the film. I wouldn't play a leather-clad
kicking butt girl. It just wouldn't make any sense to me. It would be like
cheating. It wouldn't be right … I'm not sad that it's over. I completed
it. It was a really intense, awesome experience and I feel I completed it.
So I'm happy to be moving on to other things."
Carrie-Anne Moss was born August 21, 1967 in Vancouver, Canada. She was named after the Hollies' hit 1967 song, "Carrie-Anne." Carrie-Anne is the younger of two chilren and was raised on the Canadian West Coast by her single mother, Barbara.
Carrie-Anne always wanted to pursue acting, and at age 11 she made her acting debut in the Vancouver children's musical theater. Her high school years were spent at Magee Secondary School, where she toured Europe with the school choir.
After working as a waitress in Vancouver and model in Toronto, Carrie-Anne became the first member of her family to leave Canada, and set off to Europe at the age of 20 to pursue modeling. Modeling took her from Europe to Japan and back, and eventually led to her first break in acting; a role in the CBS television series Dark Justice in 1991, filmed in Barcelona. She came to the US when Dark Justice relocated to LA. Moving to the states proved to be beneficial when Carrie-Anne landed a roll in Outward Bound, at the Hudson Theater.
In the years following Dark Justice, Carrie-Anne appeared in TV's Nightmare Café, Forever Knight, and Street Justice, Silk Stalkings, L.A. Law, The Matrix (which had no relation to the hit movie), and Baywatch.
The small appearances on TV shows finally led to a role on a Spelling television production, the drama Models Inc.. Following the short-lived series, Carrie-Anne was still waiting for her big break, especially after small roles in films like The Soft Kill (in which she had a topless scene), Terrified, co-starring Heather Graham, Sabotage, Lethal Tender, and The Secret Life of Algernon.
Finally, after six auditions for a little sci-fi film called The Matrix, Carrie-Anne proved to the film's directors that she could undergo the grueling physical work for the film, and was the perfect face and talent for the role. Once audiences laid eyes on Carrie-Anne as Trinity in The Matrix, it was clear the world had a new sci-fi cyber woman to fulfill every moviegoer's fantasy.
Named Best Actress in a Leading Role with a Golden State Award for The Matrix, Carrie-Anne expanded her film roles in projects like The Crew, Memento, Red Planet, and the critically-acclaimed Chocolat, all in the year 2000.
Carrie-Anne went on to complete The Matrix trilogy alongside Keanu Reeves. Both The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions were highly successful.
Carrie-Anne is currently married to Steven Roy and they have one son.
