Garner stars in the show as Anna Delveya pseudonym used by convicted fraudster Sorokin to defraud thousands of dollars from banks and hotels around New York by posting as a German heiress.
The series has dropped into Netflix on Friday (February 11).
In one two-star rating belong to Invented Anna, The IndependentThe film’s Annabel Nugent called it “a mixture of German, Russian and American, which sounds like lousy acting”.
However, in a new interview with InsidersSorokin says she doesn’t feel like Anna’s voice on the screen is “turned off”.
She said: “I think she fell in love with it and forgot about it. “Some things she’s right – but not everything.
“I’m observing myself, what I’m saying, but nothing like I’ve ever experienced before, having someone publicly impersonate you.”
Sorokin says it’s difficult to compare Garner’s voice to hers, because people’s voices in their heads sound different from how they sound to other people.
“I don’t feel like that,” Sorokin said. “It’s like when you hear yourself on TV and it’s not really the voice you hear in your head when you speak.”

Discussing her voice is Sorokin, says Garner IndieWire: “Here’s a girl who says she’s German, and people believe it, but she was actually born in Russia, so she won’t speak with a Russian accent.
“And then maybe she learned English the British way because she was European [and] they don’t study American English. “
