It’s been 20 years since Jennifer Garner rocketed to fame as Sydney Bristow in the TV series Alias, and SeriesFest is paying tribute to the actress, producer and entrepreneur by making her the focus of one of 2021’s Innovation Talks.
On June 25 at 6:00 p.m. MT, Garner will join Netflix veteran Krista Smith for a discussion about her career, from her best-known on-screen roles to her interests off-screen. Tickets for the Innovation Talk are available here; it will stream live tonight, but be available to watch on the SeriesFest platform until July 11, so fans don’t need to worry about missing out.
Garner had only been a TV series regular twice, in two short-lived series, before J.J. Abrams cast her as the lead in Alias, which made her a household name in 2011. The show lasted five years and earned her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series (Drama), as well as four Emmy Award nominations. She found big-screen success the same year in Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor, and went on to Daredevil and its spinoff Elektra, as well as 13 Going On 30, Love, Simon and Peppermint.
In addition to being a fan favorite performer, the actress has a long affiliation with charity Save The Children, and part of her Innovation Talk will discuss her latest project with them called SAVEWITHSTORIES. Another topic is her organic baby food company Once Upon A Farm, so audiences are getting the full picture of Garner both in TV and outside of it, directly from Garner herself. She’s done a lot of things and done them all very well, and this is her story.
