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.

At the panel, Billy created some controversies with his views on homosexual interaction on television.

“Sometimes I think, ‘Ah that’s too much for me,’” Billy, who played television’s first openly gay character on the 1970s sitcom Soap shared. “I did it in front of a live audience and there were times when I would say to Bob [Seagren], ‘I love you,’ and the audience would laugh nervously. I wanted to stop the taping and go, ‘What is your problem?’”

“Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are,” Billy added.
