Garner has never been one to chase the spotlight, and says she initially took up acting to overcome shyness at the age of 15. But her interest in the craft quickly grew.

Her work on the immensely popular show drew countless accolades and awards including three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2023.
