Dungey and Garner starred on Alias together from 2001 to 2006. Dungey appeared as a series regular in the first two seasons as Francie Calfo, the best friend of Garner's secret agent leading lady Sidney Bristow.

She also played Allison Doren, Francie's assassin doppelgänger who posed as Sidney's pal to get close to her, becoming affectionately known by fans as "Evil Francie."

Garner previously told The Hollywood Reporter "sign me up" when asked in 2021 about reviving the ABC action series.

Dungey also paid tribute to her friendship with Garner in 2021, while celebrating the 20th anniversary of Alias with their costars. "20 years. What a wonderful experience with friends I'll treasure for life," she wrote at the time.
