Prior to the hit crime and thriller series, the star was known for a similarly quirky and unconventional role in The Americans.

Let’s have an insight into the actress’s previous roles in her television network series.

Julia Garner throws light upon her character in the The Americans

In an interview with The Vulture, Julia opened up one her character, Kimberly in The Americans. She was asked about how different it felt to play a fifteen year loner suburban girl unknowingly getting along with an older KGB officer. Garner replied that all the hesitation and uncomfort that the audience feels is because of the age difference. Her character was just fifteen and that would obviously be weird. She confessed she wouldn’t ever play the role if she was fifteen in real life then. But she approached her character while imbibing Kimmy’s problems as her own. 

Garner then addressed the tendency of younger girls getting together with guys much older to them by giving into their ‘daddy issues.’ “Her dad’s not in the picture very much. You hear a lot of stories where young girls tend to go with old guys because of this,” Julia said.
