‘Inventing Anna’ stars Julia Garner as a false German heiress.
The AP reports that New York City (NYC) — Anna Sorokin, the New York socialite who claimed to be a German heiress named Anna Delvey and was ultimately found guilty of fraud, pretended to be “intimidated” by Julia Garner, according to the actress.
AP NEW YORK — Anna Sorokin, who posed as a German heiress in New York society and was later convicted of fraud, made Julia Garner feel “intimidated.”
Garner plays Sorokin in Netflix’s new series, “Inventing Anna,” which premieres Friday. What was it about that prison meeting that startled Garner? The character of Sorokin was likeable.
Garner stated, “I just wanted to get her energy,” and he was right. “What I didn’t expect was how vivacious she was, how engaging,” he says.
Garner had a better understanding of how Sorokin was able to pull off her pranks.
After that visit, I saw why she was so close to receiving all she desired. People, including those who wielded power, were drawn to her as a result. You felt torn about it. “It was an odd experience.”
An article written by Jessica Pressler, a producer on the project, provides the inspiration for “Inventing Anna.” Anna Chlumsky, a six-time Emmy nominee, plays a reporter named Vivian in the series. She is pursuing the story. In the end, she comes up with Pressler’s piece.
There are three actors that play persons in her orbit: Laverne Cox, Alexis Floyd, and Anthony Edwards. Sorokin’s lawyer, Arian Moayed, is played by Moayed. A friend of Rachel’s named Katie Lowes, Katie enjoys the benefits of being acquainted with someone who lives the high life. Sorokin’s credit cards stopped working when Rachel was on a trip to Morocco with him.
She laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of the financial institution. When Rachel, a Vanity Fair staffer, agreed to temporarily hold her corporate card, she was charged $60,000 instead. Rachel later penned a piece for Vanity Fair and authored a book on the experience, titled “My Friend Anna.” The Vanity Fair essay will be adapted for HBO by Lena Dunham.
According to two-time “Ozark” Emmy winner Garner, this was the hardest project she’s ever worked on because of the difficulty of mastering Sorokin’s accent.
In this case, it isn’t a matter of, ‘Oh, it’s a Southern accent.'” A British accent? Oh, that’s right. The accent isn’t really German or Russian, is it? According to Garner, “It’s a mixture of diverse accents.” “I had to have an accent with a variety of accents,” says the author.
“It felt like the very best days in acting class,” Chlumsky says of her scenes with Garner, in which her character tries to open up to Anna while visiting her in prison, but Anna only wants to criticize her clothes, comment on her pregnant figure, and ask for expensive underwear and fashion magazines.
We play off of one other and we’re totally focused on the present time. The feeling was one of comfort, as though everything was exactly how we had practiced.”
With Netflix’s “Inventing Anna,” Rhimes’ fingerprints are clearly visible. Fans of Rhimes’ prior shows will recognize the show’s style, music, script, and pacing. “Scandal” regular Jeff Perry, who plays Vivian’s co-worker Jeff Lowes, also appeared on the show. Quinn was played by Lowes and Cyrus by Perry. Rhimes’ shows have featured appearances by other members of the cast.
The “Shondaland sauce” has “certain things that get poured into it, no matter what the show,” Lowes remarked. There are complex and complicated women in the roles of leading ladies. In this case, we are unsure who the villains and heroes are. There’s a feeling that you’ll be unable to finish it. To move on to the next chapter, you must turn the page.
The series isn’t appealing to one person in particular. First published by Insider.com, an open letter from the genuine Sorokin, who says “nothing… seems appealing” about the show, was released.
Approximately two years ago, Sorokin was freed from prison. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement has her in custody and is considering deporting her to Germany.
Moayed believes that no matter what happens, we will continue to hear about Anna.
It’s time for the first part. As far as I can tell, we’ve only just begun to get to know her.”
