Details about Julia Garner’s parents
On February 1, 1994, Garner was born in The Bronx’s Riverdale area, New York, to Tami Gingold and Thomas Garner.

On the other hand, Garner’s father Thomas is a painter and an art instructor from Shaker Heights, Ohio. Not much is known about him, as he maintains a life away from the spotlight.
But he is often mistaken for actor Thomas Garner from Rockville because they share a common name.
In addition to her parents, the dive also has a sibling. She has an older sister, Anna Garner, who is an artist like their father.
Know Julia Garner’s nationality and ethnicity
Garner is an American by nationality, as she was born and raised in the United States.
Moreover, when it comes to her ethnicity, the actress describes herself as “semi-Israeli.” That is because her mother, as stated earlier, is from Israel and her father is an American.
Hence, Garner, like her mother, is Jewish and practices Judaism.
Speaking with e.walla once, she said, “I have a lot of family in the country [Israel]: in fact, my whole mother’s family is there, and I come to visit often.”
Garner further implied that she loved staying connected to her Israeli roots and was a huge fan of Israeli productions.
“Yes, Israelis grasp things quickly, and they are good at producing content that will be the basis for remakes,” she added. “I really like ‘Fauda’ and also ‘In Treatment.’”
Not just that, Garner’s mother, Tami, is attached to her Jewish heritage and maintains her Israeli and Jewish heritage alive by speaking Hebrew with her family.
As a result, the actress understands Hebrew but isn’t very fluent in it. That said, she is very proud of her Jewish heritage and Israeli culture.
Julia Garner’s ‘Anna Delvey’ accent
Naturally, Garner doesn’t have any distinct accent. But as an actor, she is very good at adopting different accents. She has picked up many accents to perfection for her various roles.
The actress was highly praised for her Anna Delvey accent in the Netflix series Inventing Anna. “She got it right in a way,” Delvey, whose life was portrayed in the Netflix series, said about Garner’s portrayal of her life.
Delvey was born in Russia and raised in Germany; thus, she speaks with a vaguely European accent that is purposely difficult to pinpoint.
Garner apparently worked really hard to perfect Delvey’s accent. She even went to meet her in the prison.
Fans have praised her for her Anna Delvey accent across various social media platforms. “The Anna Delvey accent on Inventing Anna is wild,” a fan wrote on Twitter.
