Carrie-Anne Moss (born August 21, 1967 in Burnaby, British Columbia) is a Canadian actress who achieved worldwide fame following her appearances in The Matrix trilogy. She is 1.74 m (5 ft 8.5 in) in height.
She had this to say about the films that made her famous (The Matrix and its sequels): "The moral of all the films is that love conquers all, destiny, believing in your past, making choices that support your destiny, being responsible for the choices that you make, believing in something that you're willing to fight for that you think is important, believing in good, freedom and believing that unless you have a choice then there's no freedom. Having a choice gives you freedom and then it's being responsible for that choice."
In the late 1980s she moved to Spain to pursue a career in modelling. Her first television appearance was in the drama series Dark Justice. She moved to Los Angeles, California with the series in 1992. Her big breakthrough came when she was chosen to play the leather-clad hacker Trinity in the 1999 box office success The Matrix. She reprised the role of Trinity in two sequels as well as providing voice-overs for video game and animated spin-offs of the film. She also appeared as Natalie in the critically-acclaimed Memento in 2000 as well as in a supporting role with Juliette Binoche in the Academy Award nominated film, Chocolat starring Johnny Depp.
Moss married fellow actor Steven Roy in 1999. They had a child together in the summer of 2003. As of November 2003, Moss, very keen to protect her and her family's privacy, has not revealed her child's name. Her second child was born in November 2005. She has not publicly confirmed the name or sex of the child.
