The Americans star Keri Russell was obviously unwilling to address the question of whether or not she is dating co-star Matthew Rhys in a recent interview with Your Tango.
When the interviewer brought up the rumor that Russell and Rhys have become “more than co-stars,” Russell simply replied “Oh! I don’t know about that!”
Rhys says even his mom believes the rumors.
“She calls up going, ‘What’s going on? I just read this about you,'” Rhys said. “I tell her, ‘You have to take off your Google alerts.'”
Season Two of the FX Cold War-era drama premiered last night. Rhys and Russell have been making the rounds of talk shows and publicity events as they promote the new season.
When asked how her relationship with Rhys has changed since the beginning of the show, Russell responded: “When you do a movie and get to walk away from it after four months, you can really hate the person and you don’t have to ever see them again. This is different, more of a business partnership. Both he and I are very steady as people. We’re nice. And that makes for a harmonious relationship.”
In December, shortly after her home was burglarized, Russell revealed that she and husband Shane Deary had been separated since early summer. Russell’s rep said that the “… separation is amicable and their focus is on their children.”
Not long after, rumors of a romance between Russell and Rhys began swirling, with sightings of the two window shopping in Russell’s Brooklyn Heights neighborhood and looking “very much like a couple.”
Russell and Deary are the parents of two children, a six-year-old son and two-year-old daughter.
Russell is well-known for her role as the title character in the television drama Felicity which ran from 1998 to 2002.
Rhys is best known for his role as Kevin Walker in ABC’s critically acclaimed drama Brothers and Sisters which aired from 2006 to 2011.
