Ozark put Julia Garner on the acting map with the actress being hailed as the breakout star of the show when it first landed on Netflix back in 2017.

Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the American actress including her age and rise to fame.

Garner was born to painter and teacher Thomas Garner and her mother is acclaimed Israeli comedian and therapist Tami Gingold.

The actress’ path to acting was an unusual one with the star initially taking drama lessons in a bid to help with her shyness in her mid-teens.

However, she subsequently fell in to love with the craft and wanted to pursue a career, making her debut age 17 in the 2011 American thriller Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Speaking to the Build Series back in 2017, Garner addressed conquering her shyness and going into the entertainment industry.

She explained: “So I started in this business because I was very shy, so I start taking acting classes to overcome my shyness.

“Then I did this student film – I used to do a lot of student films for Columbia Film School when I was 15 and the student filmmaker’s girlfriend was interning at a casting agency.

“So my first audition was for an open casting call, which was thousands of people and I didn’t get the job. It was me and another girl.”

Although she didn’t get the job, Garner later got a call and ended up starring in Martha Marcy May Marlene which was her first movie.

She admitted she didn’t really know anyone within the film business but the role helped to kickstart her career.

Reflecting on making her first film, Garner explained: “Every film or production or TV show you always learn something from it but you don’t really know what you’re learning until after you shoot it.

“But the thing that I learnt from Martha Marcy May Marlene was how to be on a set.

“I didn’t know the business. I didn’t know how shooting a movie worked.”

She added she felt “very lucky” to have been on shoot with “incredible actors and talent”.

Garner is currently filming the fourth and final season of Ozark after working on another Netflix series Inventing Anna, focusing on real-life fraudster Anna Sorokin.

Her other roles include limited series Maniac, Dirty John and The Americans as well as taking on the title role in the movie The Assistant which focuses on the #MeToo movement.

The Assistant has won Garner further acclaim with the star being nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her turn.
