Keri Russell Justifies Her Character's Actions on 'The Americans'

Keri Russell Justifies Her Character's Actions on 'The Americans'

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys share a smile onstage during the panel discussion for The Americans at the FX Networks portion of the Television Critics Association press tour at Langham Hotel on Sunday (January 18) in Pasadena, Calif.

Also making an appearance at the TCA panel that day was the Justified cast including Timothy Olyphant, Jere Burns, Mary Steenburgen, Sam Elliott, Joelle Carter, and Nick Searcy.

At the panel, Keri justified her character Elizabeth’s actions on the show.

“I don’t look at it like I’m recruiting this teenager to do what I do and turn tricks for strangers,” Keri said about her character spending more time with Paige. “She’s this mother watching a daughter being indoctrinated by someone else. If she’s going to be indoctrinated by someone, it’s going to be me. She wants it to be important and about socialism.”

FYI: Keri is wearing a Saint Laurent blouse, Balenciaga skirt, and Jason of Beverly Hills jewels.
