Jennifer Garner talks marching band technique with Seth Meyers


NEW YORK (March 18, 2016) — Award-winning actress Jennifer Garner recalled her marching band experience during an interview on the March 17 episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, even explaining the importance of proper heel-toe roll marching technique. A video of the interview can now be viewed on YouTube.

Jennifer Garner shared this photo with Seth Meyers and admitted, Clearly I'm breaking parade formation to wave to my mom. Garner played alto saxophone while a student at John Adams Junior High School in Charleston, W.Va. The 43-year-old actress displayed clear memories of her time in band while talking with Meyers.

"You don't want to jostle your instrument," Garner said. "You have to go a smooth heel-toe, you want a steady gait, you want to key off of the person to your right because you want a straight line."

According to IMDb.com, Garner has received four Emmy nominations, four Golden Globe nominations (one win, for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama"), and two Screen Actors Guild Award nominations (one win, for "Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series").
