Give or take, Garner was 30 years old when Alias hit the big screen and there was no turning back for her.
Have heard so many different stories about how she was "discovered" in Tinseltown that I do not know which to believe.
What I do know is that, for a period of time, JG was the new "it girl", she could do no wrong, and audiences simply could not get enough of her.
Alias, which ran for 5 years, was simply an OK premise taken to heights of high-camp based solely on the star power of Garner.
She was hot, she could act, she could do stunts, she had great reaction shots, and she made it all seem so easy. Even her film roles in his period are worth a look (which is another section of the IMDb entirely).
Recommended for teenage boys of all ages.
