Julia Garner Early Life

Julia Garner was born on the 1st of February, 1994, in New York. Her mother is a therapist who had a successful career as a comedian. Her father is a painter and an art teacher. Garner is Jewish, just like her mother. She grew up in the Riverdale neighborhood of The Bronx.

Julia Garner Career

Julia Garner’s first professional career as an actor started with student films for the Columbia Film School. As she had problems reading, she overcame the difficulty of reading her dialogues by memorising and practicing them incessantly.

In 2010 when she was 17, an open casting call was announced for the American remake of the British series Skins. There were 1500 hopefuls and Julia made it to the final 30. However, the role went to someone else. One of the casting assistants was Susan Shopmaker who happened to be an acquaintance of Julia. Five months after her first audition, Shopmaker gave her a role in Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Garner started getting noticed by Indie film directors and in 2012 she got a major role in the film Electrik Children directed by Rebecca Thomas. The same year director David Chase wrote a part especially for her in his film Not Fade Away and she also acted in the film The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Early on Julia found that she was being offered unconventional roles and films. She played a cannibal Rose Parker in the 2013 film We Are What We Are. In 2014, she appeared as the stripper Marcie in the crime movie Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. In the 2015 comedy film Grandma, she played the role of Lily Tomlin’s pregnant granddaughter.

Julia Garner’s debut in television happened in 2015 when she landed a recurring role in The American, a spy series set during the cold war period. She continued acting in the series till 2018. In 2016 she appeared in an episode in the HBO series Girls.

In 2017 Garner became the breakout star of the series Ozark in which she plays a young criminal mastermind. To audition for the character of Ruth Langmore that she plays in the series, Garner practiced her lines in the Missouri accent. When she went to the casting office she found everyone else saying their lines normally. She wondered if she had made a mistake and tried to practice the lines without the accent only to discover that she couldn’t recall the dialogue without the accent.

What she thought was going to ruin her audition turned out just the other way. Her co-star Laura Linney recalls that the moment Garner started speaking they knew that here was someone to take notice of.

Julia Garner put in a lot of work to prepare for the role of Ruth. Apart from practicing the accent all the time she tried to see beyond the combativeness and offensiveness of the character. This empathy with the character is what made her performance so remarkable and has won her awards like the Emmy.

In 2019, Julia Garner starred in The Assistant. The film directed by Kitty Green became the first one to grapple with the Harvey Weinstein incident though he is never explicitly named. In the same year, she appeared in the romantic anthology TV series Modern Love as Madeleine, a young professional who becomes interested in a much older colleague.

Julia Garner is also fast becoming a fashion iconShe has walked the ramp for Balenciaga at the Paris Fashion Week and also done ad campaigns for Miu Miu and Kate Spade.

Favorite Quotes from Julia Garner


“I started taking acting classes when I was 14. That’s when I knew I wanted to try it professionally. Before that, I always watched movies, but I didn’t think it was a real job. I watched Turner Classic Movies with my parents. I’ve always loved the old classics.” – Julia Garner

“I think that the most important thing for me is, how is the character that I would be reading for? Is it interesting? Is there stuff to do? Are there things that you can do with the character? How can you play it out? Just those kinds of things that are very important for an actor. Also, a good director and good dialogue.” – Julia Garner

The thing that I look for in a script – I’m not looking for anything next because you never know where life’s going to take you, so you can’t just expect, ‘I want to do this next.’ So I’m not expecting anything; I’m just hoping.” – Julia Garner 

“I always wear what looks good on me, because I think the most important thing with fashion is confidence. “You can wear something beautiful, and if you don’t feel good in it, it’s not going to look great.” – Julia Garner 

“I started acting because I had such confidence issues because I wasn’t literate and couldn’t articulate myself in the way I wanted to. Almost everything that I said, I felt it was just dumb in a way. My mom was a little worried because of my problem, but I was like, ‘No, I really want to do it.’” – Julia Garner
