Netflix’s Ozark fetched unmatched glory onto the table with stars like Julia Garner and Jason Bateman as the frontrunners. Garner, who played the unconventional cut-throat crime lord Ruth Langmore, got her first major breakthrough into the industry. Ever since her iconic character, her career just went up the curve with directors sprawling at her with new projects and deals.
Following the Netflix blockbuster, Garner immediately joined another show of the streaming giant which also fetched her much glory and fame. Having nailed her Ruth Langmore off the park, Garner gained massive success as the Russian secret spy, Anna Delvy in the Inventing Anna TV series. However, following this, the star was reportedly handed another Hollywood biggie which, unfortunately, is happening no more.
