Who is Julia Garner married to? Inventing Anna star’s husband Mark Foster is a musician

Julia Garner, who won critical acclaim for her role in ‘Ozark’ and starred as the convicted con artist in Netflix’s ‘Inventing Anna’, has been married since 2019 to musician Mark Foster.

Julia Garner has been offered the role of Madonna in an upcoming biopic about the music superstar. She has become the favorite among more than a dozen applicants, and her team is evaluating and expected to accept the offer.

The film, produced by Universal Pictures, will chronicle the early years of the often controversial artist and queen of endless reinvention. Donna Langley, president of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, won the script in a multi-studio bidding war, and Amy Pascal is involved as producer.

The actress, who takes over Netflix one show at a time, rose to prominence for her performance as Ruth Langmore in “Ozark” before starring as the fake German heiress in “Inventing Anna.”

Garner got into acting to help her overcome her shyness and be more outgoing, and at 17 she got her first film role. The Emmy-winning actress has also starred in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower,’ ‘The Assistant,’ ‘We Are What We Are,’ ‘Dirty John,’ and ‘The Americans.’


Garner has been in the limelight, but she has kept her private life out of the spotlight. In 2019, she married Foster, the singer and musician known as the frontman of indie-pop band Foster the People.

Foster and Garner first met in 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival, but didn’t start dating until years later. They bonded over where their families lived but did not exchange contact details.

However, Foster was undeterred as he found Garner on Instagram, where he liked all of her photos and then swiped into her DMs. 18 months after they started dating, they got engaged and married on December 27, 2019.

In 2009, Foster co-founded his band with producer Zach “Reazon” Heiligman and drummer Mark Pontius. His bassist friend Cubbie Fink then joined the band and in 2010 their single “Pumped Up Kicks” went viral.

Foster composed and recorded an original score for sketch comedian Andy Dick and wrote smaller pieces of music both for and about Dick. He also dabbled in production and wrote commercial jingles.

Besides music, he enjoys traveling solo. On one of his trips, he helped build a school in Nepal, and on an expedition to Uganda, Foster helped open a well.


In 2016, years after “The Vampire Diaries,” actress Nina Dobrev broke up with her co-star, Ian Somerhalder; she reportedly started dating her boyfriend, Foster, whom she tried to hide from the public.

The rumors started after Dobrev and Somerhalder started feuding over Nikki Reed, Dobrev’s former friend. Despite their relationship ending, she wasn’t happy that her ex-boyfriend was dating her former friend.

Dobrev and Foster reportedly dated for about a month, but the actress and singer have never confirmed the relationship, and no one knows how long they dated or if they even dated.
