It took the whole world by storm when Julia Garner, 25 bagged the Emmy for her outstanding performance in Ozark. She got the Best Supporting Actress over entire Game of Thrones cast, which is remarkable. I mean did you see her competition?
Most were shocked, to be frank, my heart flattened just by her pure soul & timidness and the way she delivered her speech after winning the award, and she takes onto backstage questions. This cute fox hails from Riverdale in New York.
And here are 5 things you didn’t know about this cute Apple Blossom Awesome Blue Berry Saucer.
1# Her First Role Was As ‘Girl On Sidewalk’!
That’s right! We all have to start somewhere, apparently, Garner was just given just a few frames for her first camera time, in the movie, The Dreamer in 2010! Who knew so much raw talent was just bustling inside. She was very young at the time though.
#2 She has an older sister named Anna
Also gone by Ani, who is a writer, producer, and an artist. They both took acting lessons together. On top of that Julia’s fiance, Mark Foster is in the biz too.
3# Julia got into acting at the age of 15.
The young Julia started taking acting lessons at the age of 15 to overcome her shyness and had her first feature film as a lead in Electrick Children. Through her interviews, you can tell she still hasn’t overcome the shyness aspect about her, but when it comes to acting she delivers.
4# Her favorite Actress & films
Though this point may not seem much relevant, it is important to know an artists’ personal favorites to know where they get their inspiration from. In this case, her all-time favorite and idol actress is Bette Davis and Monica Vitti, her favorite films are All About Eve (1950), Annie Hall (1977), Rosemary’s Baby (1968), Babel (2006) and The Student Prince in Old Heidelberg (1927).
She says she’s fascinated by the legendary Bette Davis especially her performance in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane (1962).
5# How’d She Land Her First Movie?
In her own words in an interview with The New York Times, Garner said “…I started doing student films at Columbia grad school, and this one student filmmaker, his girlfriend was interning at an open casting call for [the casting director] Susan Shopmaker. Later on, she did the stage reading for “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” then she cast it. And that was my first movie.” She did two extremely short roles before actually getting a character who has a name in the film.
