Carrie-Anne Moss: Movie actress
Canada is on the move to take over not only the US entertainment industry but also the world audience. The likes of Drake and Justin Bieber have taken over music, making bigger records that their American counterparts.
It’s not in music only but it's also in Hollywood that the United States has an seen in influx of talent from Canada.
One such actresses has taken over the film industry and she's really impressive. She is actress, Carrie-Anne Moss who rose to fame after landing the role of Trinity in 'The Matrix Triology.'
Since then, Moss has starred in several movies and TV shows that have maintained her celebrity status. Moss is also one of the stars who updates their fans frequently on Instagram, making her an online star. There is so much about Moss that is not known,but for now, let’s find out about her roots.
50-year-old Carrie-Anne Moss was born in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. She is the daughter of Barbara and Melvin Moss and she has an older brother named Brooke.
Moss’s mother apparently named the actress after the 1967 hit song, 'Carrie Anne' which was sung by The Hollies. Just before she turned 11, Moss’s parents split up and she moved to Vancouver with her mother.
While there, she joined the Vancouver Children’s Musical Theatre where she won a trip to Europe with the Magee Secondary School Choir during her senior year.
While in Europe, Moss decided to settle in Spain where she got a role in the drama series 'Dark Justice' which was her first TV appearance. The series moved to Barcelona to Los Angeles and Carrie-Anne Moss moved with it in 1992.
While in the United States Moss enrolled to American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena and started appearing subsequently on the Fox’s 'Models Inc.' as a model. The TV series was canceled in 1995 and Moss jumped off to a Canadian TV series known as 'Matrix.'
In the ‘90s she appeared in several television series such as 'Baywatch' and 'Street Justice' as well as 'Due South' where she was nominated for the Gemini Award for Best Guest Actress in the Drama.
Her breakthrough came when Moss played the role of Trinity in 'The Matrix' Trilogy' which started in 1999.
Her role in the 'Matrix' movie required her to be a perfect acrobatic so she went through a vigorous test during casting. The film is considered as one of the greatest science fiction movies ever created. Moss has made quite a decent net worth since and has featured in movies and TV shows like 'The Matrix Trilogy' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Memento,' 'Red Planet' 'Disturbia,' and 'Daredevil.'
Discussing 'Jessica Jones, Season 2'
The titular character in 'Jessica Jones,' a Marvels TV show, is not the only one going through trauma and vulnerability. In the Season 2 of 'Jessica Jones' which airs on Netflix, Jeri Horgath, played by Carrie-Anne Moss, gets an ALS diagnosis, and it makes her react in surprising ways.
Moss was fine with the first season and she was sort of driving the scenes. In an interview with 'Variety,' Moss said that she had fun in this season of the show playing vulnerable of her desperation and showing her fear.
Moss added that she got the chance to play the powerful side of the character as well its human’s side and she had the opportunity to see where she comes from as well as the reason she looks the way she does today.
Speaking of the evolution of Jeri in the new season, the movie actress and frequent Instagram user, Moss had much to say.
Carrie-Anne Moss remembered when the producers and directors brought the whole crew and the actors in and asked them if they wanted to know the entire plot of the second season. The movie actress stated that it was sometimes better to find out while shooting, but this time, she wanted to find out early. They sat her down and explained it to her and she was amazed after she heard what it was all about.
The biggest challenge Moss had was the diagnosis. It was complicated for her to read, imagine and put herself in the shoes of the character. At times it was a bit intense.
When asked how she struck a balance--when to show how it was affecting her profoundly and when she wanted it to look business as usual--Moss said that she always tried her best to cover up as much as she could.
Even though it was all about the acting she still felt as though it was a lot for her to handle.
Moss was also asked to explain a scene where her character wanted to end her life, but she told her doctor that she wanted to do it all without medical help.
Moss said that she was actually interested in the larger conversation but never wanted it to get to that point.
'Jessica Jones' is different from other Marvel shows for Moss
It’s a great time for Marvel as it has taken over the movie industry. For instance, 'Black Panther' has proved every critic wrong and surprised everyone.
Even before the excitement is halfway over, they are about to release the 'Avengers: Infinity War' and then 'Deadpool 2' before the year ends.
It’s not just the movie side that is experiencing a lot of excitement these days.
Television shows are receiving major moments as well as fans anxiously awaiting for to watch the second season of 'Jessica Jones.' It's finally on Netflix and one of the characters that they've been waiting eagerly to see is Carrie-Anne Moss’, Jeri Hogarth.
Moss’s Jeri affected the events of the shared universe, 'Daredevil,' 'Iron Fist,’ and 'The Defenders' and she did little to challenge the character.
Thanks to 'Jessica Jones’ sophomore finale, we can now focus on the actress of 'he Matrix Trilogy,' 'Memento,' 'Red Planet' 'Disturbia,' and 'Daredevil' MCU character renewal.
Fans were really excited about the new season and for good reason. It’s not only Claire Temple of 'Rosario Dawson' who popped from the most crossover moments but Jeri Hogarth(Carrie-Anne Moss) as well.
She was in the first season of 'Iron Fist' going to bat for Danny Rand providing him with an ally.
Moss also appeared as the same character on 'Daredevil’s' second season where the show hired Foggy to her firm.
Her appearance on 'The Defenders' saw her make an appearance and she even guided Matt Murdock towards Jessica.
With all those cameos that Moss made, it makes sense that she is pretty excited to really dive in 'Jessica Jones Season 2.' The series allows characters like Trish, Malcolm and Moss’s Jeri to grow and develop more as the focus of the TV show is their development.
The changes of Jeri can be seen from the first episode where she has a change of power and also a rise in status. By looking at how things are going, the character will uproot everything people thought they knew about her. By the end of season 1, Jeri(Moss) had a pretty rough line especially when she joined hands with Kilgrave.
She almost died after the villain asked his former wife to murder her and Jeri’ mistress saved her and killed Wendy.
By the end of the season, Jeri(Moss) had lost two biggest people in her life and so Season 2 has too much to avail.
