Biography

Canadian import Carrie-Anne Moss began her career as a well-known name in fashion modeling, but eventually landed on American television and fulfilled her lifelong goal of being a professional actress. However, nothing prepared Moss for becoming an overnight cultural icon when she landed the career-defining role of Trinity, the cool, leather-clad, sunglasses-sporting heroine of the futuristic sci-fi phenomenon, "The Matrix" (1999) and its two sequels. So great was the film's impact on the cultural zeitgeist that Moss become more unrecognizable without sunglasses than with. Labeled by media and geek fandom as an action chick - a term she wholeheartedly embraced - Moss was wise in not letting the role define her career, and went on to balance her résumé with more down-to-earth roles in films like the critical hits "Memento" (2001) and "The Chumscrubber" (2005), as well as in a series of especially dark family dramas in which the uniquely intense actress particularly excelled.
