Initially seen as the squeaky-clean girl-next-door, actress Jennifer Garner became a fan favorite after channeling an inner-strength she never suspected she possessed. Garners' early work consisted of several TV-movies, numerous series guest spots, a few minor turns in feature films like "Washington Square" (1997) and a recurring role on the hit drama, "Felicity" (The WB, 1998-2002). Her natural appeal began attracting attention with supporting roles opposite Ashton Kutcher in the slacker comedy, "Dude, Where's My Car?" (2000) and the big-budget WWII epic, "Pearl Harbor" (2001), starring future husband Ben Affleck. But it was her breakthrough role as Sydney Bristow, the tough-as-nails super spy on the action adventure series "Alias" (ABC, 2002-06) that turned the previously waifish actress into a leading lady to be reckoned with. Attempting to parlay the success of "Alias" into film work as a female action hero, she played Affleck's femme fatale, Elektra, in the superhero adventure, "Daredevil" (2003). The gambit failed to pay off, however, as audiences found her far more endearing in softer romantic comedies like "13 Going on 30" (2004). Following her marriage to Affleck, Garner began appearing more often as an ensemble player, earning high marks with both relatable, comedic turns and darker character explorations in such varied films as "Juno" (2007), "Dallas Buyers Club" (2013), and family films including "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" (2014) and "Nine Lives" (2016) before returning to TV with the cable comedy "Camping" (HBO 2018- ). The versatile Garner became one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses even at times when the state of her personal life threatened to overshadow her screen work.
