"13 Going on 30" star Jennifer Garner shared the humbling experience she had when she texted a wrong number while trying to get into contact with her former "Alias" costar, Carl Lumbly.

"Alias" has been on Garner's mind as the cast and crew recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of the show's first season this month. The series ran on ABC From 2001 to 2006.

In the crime and investigation show, Garner played CIA double agent Sydney Bristow, while Lumbly played Marcus Dixon. Besides Lumbly, it seems Garner is reconnecting with all of her former co-stars.

The actress shared a TikTok video, which was also her TikTok debut, of the show's reunion party. It included a look at the cast while starring on "Alias" to them at the party. Garner captioned her TikTok video:

"We’re here, we’re older, but we still got it. #FirstTikTok #Alias20"

With the reunion party a few days behind her, Garner decided to reach out to Lumbly via a text message. Unfortunately, her attempt at connection was unsuccessful.

In a screenshot exchange, which Garner shared on her Instagram, the "Yes Day" actress messaged a phone number she thought was Lumbly's. She identified herself then sent a candid selfie.

But just before her selfie was sent, she received a reply saying she messaged the wrong number. So the actress just explained she was looking for an old friend.

Alongside the interaction, which Garner described as humbling, the "Miracles From Heaven" actress explained the embarrassing and relatable situation as she wrote:

"You know the one time you take a selfie to prove to someone you’re you? And get a “wrong number” message just as it’s gone out into the world?"

Hopefully, Garner will be in touch with Lumbly soon because she pleaded using hashtags, that if anyone seeing her post worked with him, they should let him know she was trying to contact him.

Another "Alias" alum Garner hopes to reconnect with following the show's two-decade anniversary is the show's creator, J.J Abrams, who could not attend the reunion party.

In an Instagram post about the "Alias" reunion, Garner revealed it was her fault Abrams was unable to attend the event as she had scheduled the party during a time he was busy.

Garner praised the creator for all his hard work and his imagination coming up with the show. Alongside the thoughtful dedication, Garner shared her debut TikTok video.
