Robert De Niro Defends Anna Paquin's Role in 'The Irishman'
Robert De Niro Defends Anna Paquin's Role in 'The Irishman'. The Oscar winning actress plays Peggy Sheeran in the film, daughter of Frank Sheeran, portrayed by De Niro. Though her character is central to the development of the story, Paquin speaks only seven lines in the film. This has sparked controversy online, with some saying that the actress was underused. As one of the executive producers of 'The Irishman,' De Niro spoke to the controversy in a recent interview. She was very powerful and that's what it was. Maybe in other scenes there could've been some interaction between Frank and her possibly, but that's how it was done. She's terrific and it resonates, Robert De Niro, via CNN. On Twitter, Paquin herself addressed rumors that she was somehow "ordered" to do the film by director Martin Scorsese. Nope, nobody was doing any “ordering”. I auditioned for the privilege of joining the incredible cast of @TheIrishmanFilm and I’m incredibly proud to get to be a part of this film, Anna Paquin, Twitter
