Born in Winnipeg, Canada, and the child of two teachers, she moved to New Zealand when she was four. Her debut performance, in the 1993 film The Piano, which was widely regarded as extraordinary even by critics who didn't like the film, saw her win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress; the second-youngest person to win an Oscar.
She moved to Los Angeles with her mother after her parents' divorce, and took several well-regarded roles in various movies as she completed her secondary education. She returned to worldwide prominence with her role as Rogue in the blockbuster X-Men movie in 2000 and its sequel in 2003.
