“The Americans,” a tense and thought-provoking Cold War drama set during the Reagan Administration, has been reputed to get better year after year ever since it launched in 2013.  The diminutive 41-year-old Russell with her trademark mop of curly hair and beginnings with the Mickey Mouse Club was an excellent casting choice for television’s most unlikely-looking Russian agent. 

“I know not every mom is a secret KGB spy, but every mom has this whole other life,” Russell has said of her dual-identity role.
Keri Russell is best known for her role in Felicity.

Prior to “The Americans” this accomplished dancer was best known for her Golden Globe-winning portrayal of all-American Felicity Porter in the popular series FELICITY.  In 1999 she made People Magazine’s famed “50 Most Beautiful’ list and has served as a model and spokesperson for Cover Girl cosmetics.

“Acting is a strange profession, and, yes, sometimes I struggle with its worth, its value in the world,” Russell claims.  Here’s hoping the struggle has finally ended for her right at the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
