1It hurt at the time because it's supposed to be a huge celebration. I was supposed to be able to go, 'Wow, I'm having a baby and this is amazing'. I felt like that I had to hide. I felt like it was bad for me to be happy about it. I felt scared in my own home and it was horrible. I should be entitled to walk around my front yard without worrying that these people are watching me.
2When I found out this was going to be the last Star Wars film that was ever going to be made, I felt pretty privileged to be in it.
3[on being interviewed during Oscar time] "For four weeks straight I didn't know what I was doing. It was like I had this little tape in my head and I'd sit there and they all would ask the exact same thing and I'd hit play and I'd be like, 'Blah blah ... ' in this monotone and they'd be like, 'Are you OK, dear?"'
4[on roles she's been offered since Whale Rider] "They're all really sexual roles or they all think that I'm still 11. They send me scripts and I say that I'm too young or not old enough and they're like, 'Well just come in and see us.' And so I go in and they're like, 'Oh, you've got tall and you've got hips and you've got boobs.' And I'm like, 'Yeah. That's what happens.'
5Your private life should be private. I reckon that's a good thing that you talk about your work and you talk about what you're doing, but without having to go into how your brother's been and how your mum's been because none of that's really relevant.
6[on her role in Star Wars III] "I was on for 10 seconds and if you see me you're lucky."
7[on her Whale Rider character] "I think we're both strong willed and independent, and Pai has a great unique quality about her. She's an 11-year-old girl who's confident about who she is and knows exactly who she is. Not many 11-year-old girls are like that. She's a great role model for young girls. I think I'm like that too."
8I'd always wanted to act but it wasn't just that, it was because all the ladies wore pretty dresses.
9[on whether she wants to be an actor when she's older] "I want to be a science teacher. My friends asked me why, but I'm intrigued by it and I'm quite good at science at school."
10[on Whale Rider] "Watching that film made me proud to be a New Zealander."
11[on being asked if acting what how she expected it to be] "Definitely not what I expected it to be. All I ever saw were famous people getting what they wanted when they wanted it and I was shocked at the fact that I actually had to work."
12I keep having to pinch myself to make sure I'm actually awake. The Oscars are so big -- they're huge ... I'm totally humbled and ecstatic. No words are enough to explain ... it's like, wow. It's absolutely incredible. - after finding out about her Academy Award nomination

11One of her biggest challenges in making Whale Rider (2002) was having to go barefoot all the time.
12She often used to compete in and win speech competitions at school.
13Her younger brother Rhys Castle-Hughes has followed in his sisters footsteps; he is a talented young actor who is appearing in a New Zealand series called The Lost Children (2006) and has also appeared in a NZ Short Film.
14Stays in contact with her Whale Rider (2002) co-star Cliff Curtis.
15Spent seven hours in make-up for her cameo in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005).
16Her best school subjects used to be maths and science, but now she enjoys drama.
17Filmed all of her Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005) scenes in just one day.
18Originally it was thought she was born in New Zealand as she was part Maori and became famous after a New Zealand film. It wasn't until her Oscar nomination that her Australian father revealed that she had in fact been born in Australia.
19Is a fan of Julia Roberts.
20Has been learning Maori dances since she was 6.
21Is a fan of Johnny Depp; was able to meet him at the 76th Academy Awards when they were both nominees.

26During an interview with Jay Leno, she confessed she didn't know how to swim when she was cast in Whale Rider (2002).
27Discovered by the same agent who discovered Anna Paquin.
28She was a fortunate discovery for Whale Rider (2002). The casting director and casting assistant went to her primary school in Mt Wellington, New Zealand and went through a few hundred children to choose their Paikea. They found her, only because she was playing up and being smart to them: she stood out.
