Picks and Pans Review: Sounds Off
For Keri Russell, 29, dormitory days are a thing of the past. After taking a year off to hang out with friends, the former Felicity star is back at work. She appeared on Broadway last year in Neil LaBute's Fat Pig and now she plays a pioneer in TNT's six-part miniseries Into the West.
ON STARRING IN A PERIOD PIECE I've always wanted to do a western. I grew up watching them on Saturday afternoons with my dad. I'm attracted to that whole lifestyle. I'd ridden horses before, but [it was while filming this that] I learned to really ride.
ON LIFE AFTER FELICITY It must be on reruns again because people in the subway are coming up to me all of a sudden. It's funny. I still have a lot of friends from the show. Scott Speedman [who played beau Ben Covington] is practically my best friend. But when we talk we don't talk about Felicity. We talk about our lives.
ON HER GUILTIEST PLEASURE My girlfriends and I love The Bachelor. Love it, love it, love it! We have this one girlfriend in mind to be the next Bachelorette and think we all should be on it. I'm a sucker for romance.
