Paquin, 33, went for an all black, floor length gown, which featured sheer paneling, vertical stripes and sequin details. She belted the look at the waist and kept the rest of her accessories minimal, adding just a pair of chandelier earrings.

The mother of twins‘ makeup added dramatic effect as she opted for a bold smokey eye with rosy cheeks and a nude lip.

Paquin’s hair was perfectly coiffed in a teased updo.

Meanwhile, Moyer, 46, let his wife steal the show as he donned a simple gray suit, white collared shirt and black tie.

The A&E remake of the 1977 series also stars
Forest Whitaker
, Anika Noni Rose, and Chad Coleman.

Roots will air over four consecutive nights starting May 30 at 9 p.m. on History, A&E and Lifetime.
