Taking on the lead part of Sydney Bristow, Garner went on to star in more than 100 episodes of Alias over the course of five seasons. She was nominated for a number of Emmy awards during that time and in 2002 won a Golden Globe for her performances in the show.
Along the way, Garner also earned some significant movie roles during the early 2000s. She starred in films such as Catch Me If You Can, Daredevil, 13 Going on 30 and Elektra during a busy three-year period. Alias then came to an end in 2006, but Garner continued to find work the following year, featuring in The Kingdom and Juno.
With her career thriving, Garner’s personal life was also in a positive place, as she wed Ben Affleck in 2005. During their time together, the couple became parents to three children named Violet, Samuel and Seraphina. Everything changed some ten years later, however.
