Julia Garner is an American actress born on February 1, 1994. Her career started with the film Not Fade Away by David Chase. However, she got her first lead role in the movie 'Electrick Children' in 2012. She is widely famous for her role as Ruth in Netflix's 'Ozark'.

In the interview, Julia talked about her first audition. The actresses took acting classes when she was 15 years old to try and fight her shyness. Garner auditioned for a role in Nickelodeon, and it was her third or fourth one. While she was giving the audition, the casting director interrupted her and told her that she's "great". Then, they advised her to try independent films. However, this rejection steered Julia in the world of acting as she went to do independent films. In 2017, Julia landed the role of Ruth and left her mark in the industry.
Julia says that her goal is not to be able to remember what she did in a take. She says that if she can listen to what she's saying, it means that it isn't natural.

To capture this, she manages to have an on-screen intensity that highlights her presence on the screen. Her colleague Lauren Linney says that Julia "throws herself" with reckless abandon. Jason Bateman also talked about the actress manages to bring about a juxtaposition to her character.
