The Americans star Keri Russell is featured in the November 2017 issue of Woman & Home South Africa.
From the digital issue:
Golden Globe-winning actress Keri Russell, 41 plays an enigmatic spy in The Americans, talks to Woman & Home about being an Audrey Hepburn fan, guilty pleasures and her on-screen, off-screen husband.
On The Americans: “I know that Elizabeth and Philip are spies and they’re fighting about these huge, giant issues with Russia, but they actually argue about the same things all married couples do. The series is at its best, for me, when it explores that relationship, and the relationships with the children, as that’s really what is at its heart.”
On working with hubby Matthew Rhys: “He’s an amazing listener and is quite emotional so in that way, I’d say he’s like his character Philip. He’d kill me for saying that.”
On home and and motherhood: “Life is good and busy, and chaotic. It’s everything that I could want. My kids are amazing and loads of fun. Every working mom would agree that you’re pulled in many different directions and you just do the best you can.”
The final season of The Americans premieres in 2018 on FX.
