Keri Russell Speaks About How 'The Americans' Changed Her Career

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are on the cover of Variety‘s new issue.

Here’s what The Americans stars had to share with the mag:

Keri, on how this role changed her career: “It was a real adult creative job for me. I wasn’t playing a kid anymore. It kind of woke me up creatively. Elizabeth is tough and cool and strong and sexy and all of these things I really enjoy playing. You don’t always enjoy the characters you get to play.”

Keri, on the series finale: “[The ending] they’ve created is so satisfying in a really surprising way. It’s exactly in line with the tone of the show. It really got me.”
