Keri Russell & Matthew Rhys Actually Met 16 Years Ago!

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys didn’t first meet when co-starring on The Americans, as some fans might have expected!

The on-and-off-screen couple actually met 16 years ago and Matthew opened up about drunkenly trying to give Keri his phone number during an interview on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday (April 13) in New York City.

“We actually met a very long, long time ago and I very drunkenly asked her for her number,” Matthew said when asked about the moment he knew he had the hots for Keri. “She was a young, single slip of a thing. So I sort of knew then, when I was 26.”

“It was in a parking lot, very romantic. She asked me to open up a beer,” Matthew said. Keri added that it was after a kickball party!
