Keri Russell: Lady of the Week #9 (Feb. 2013)

Keri Russell
(Dark Skies, "The Americans," "Felicity")
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=

Born in Fountain Valley, California, Keri Russell was initially interested in dance, and her first big break came when she was selected to join the cast of the latest revival of the classic Disney children's variety show "The Mickey Mouse Club" in 1991 along side Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling. Russell found great success with the title role on the TV series "Felicity," portraying a young woman who decides to follow her crush to New York City to attend the same college. This coming-of-age drama was a hit with critics and developed a devoted following. In 1999, her earnest portrayal of a nave college student finding her way in the big city netted her a Golden Globe Award.
Dark Skies follows a young family living in the suburbs. As husband and wife Daniel and Lacey Barret witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barret family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel and Lacey take matters in their own hands to solve the mystery of what is after their family.
The Americans is a period drama about the complex marriage of two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington D.C. shortly after Ronald Reagan is elected President. The arranged marriage of Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell), who have two children -- 13-year-old Paige (Holly Taylor) and 10-year-old Henry (Keidrich Sellati), who know nothing about their parents’ true identity -- grows more passionate and genuine by the day, but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control. Complicating their relationship further is Philip’s growing sense of affinity for America’s values and way of life.
