Keri Russell Is Our Favorite American

Photographed by Tina Turnbow.
Our love for Keri Russell goes way back to Felicity, but these days we're even more smitten with the actress thanks to her role as undercover KGB spy Elizabeth Jennings in the FX period drama The Americans. The intelligent blend of intrigue, relationship drama, and, of course, '80s spy disguises, is completely riveting, and it's only getting better as this season's provocative and compelling story lines have shown.

Between filming and press events for the show, Russell took time to chat with us and share some behind-the-scenes dish. From John Denver wigs and "kitten language" to the skin-saving products she relies on and her love of Taylor Swift, read on to get the scoop. Be warned: You're going to love her even more than you already do — something we didn't even think was possible.
