“It hasn’t been easy,” she said.

Paquin also gushed about working with Moyer, 54, and having him as a support system.

“He’s my favorite person to play with,” she said. “I’m not sentimental when it comes to work.”

The “True Blood” alum has not walked a red carPet since October 2022 at the Raindance Film Festival. She posed for photos with Moyer then, too, but notably did not use a cane.

The couple tied the knot in 2010 and share 11-year-old twins: daughter Poppy and son Charlie.
