“Ozark” star Julia Garner covers the latest issue of Porter magazine photographed by Terence Connors and styled by Rebecca Dennett.
She thinks her career choice makes sense: “I always loved film. I grew up watching Turner Classic Movies and I always had this fascination with actors: Bette Davis, Vivien Leigh, Marlon Brando, Meryl Streep.”
On the success of “Ozark” and her character “Ruth”: “I didn’t know the show was going to be successful,” she recalls of her first impressions of it. “Because sometimes you have shows that have stars in it and a star writer and star director, and it doesn’t take off. So I wasn’t expecting anything. But I knew Ruth was so likeable, even from the scene I read in my audition. I knew she was my part.”
Her approach to style seems to mirror the attitude she takes to making career choices: “I think art is most interesting when it contradicts itself,” she says. “I try to do that with my acting, just like I try to do that with my fashion.”
