Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are rumoured to have gotten very close on the set of their series The Americans. The stars appeared to be on a date as they took in the play Library at The Public Theatre in New York on Thursday night. Keri, 38, who announced her split from husband Shane Deary in December, appeared to be enjoying Matthew's company very much as she chatted with Rhys, 39, in front of the theater entrance.

The Welsh actor was leaning in closer to Keri just as their picture was being taken. Keri's face broke into a little smile as she was caught on a night out with her co-star. 'They looked very close, like a couple on a date together,' an eyewitness revealed. The petite actress was leaning against a column and dressed casually in jeans, a black leather jacket and rugged boots.

Matthew mirrored that understated look in cuffed jeans, a red plaid shirt and black padded jacket, along with high-top trainers. 'It was very obvious they weren't just there as two people who work together,' the eyewitness continued. 'They were whispering in each others ear and at one point Keri was stroking and playing with Matthew's hair very affectionately.' The source further added: 'They were sitting next to each other in the theatre and she was stroking his head at one point.

'It was clearly a date and they were being quite open about that. After the show they hung out in the lobby with some friends then left together.' Matthew recently told People magazine that his own mother has believed the rumours flying around that he and his pretty co-star are dating. 'She calls up going, "What's going on? I just read this about you,"' he told the magazine. 'I tell her, "You have to take off your Google alerts."'

Set during the cold war in the 1980s, The Americans is currently in its second season on FX. Keri and Matthew play Soviet spies Elizabeth and Phillip Jennings who, after being brought together by an arranged marriage, live double lives raising two children in suburban Reagan-era Washington, DC while spying on the American government.

Keri's publicist announced the actress had separated from her husband Shane Deary on December 5 after six years of marriage. 'They have been separated since early summer,' the rep told People. 'The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children.' The couple are parents to son River, six, and daughter Willa, two.

(first post yay!)

I read that headline as serial killer dater and I was concerned for Felicity's safety for a moment.

who cares if she dates her co-stars?
I would too if I were an attractive actress who is always being paired up with hot actors

I mean I'd probably wait until we were done working together, which I guess works out more for movie actors. Like, Sophia Bush and CMM are a good example of why it might not be a good idea lol.
kukamine 28th-Mar-2014 09:38 pm (UTC)
ia, it's not always a good idea to get into a relationship with a co-star just because you felt sparks on set
but it does help to be around hot people when you just want something casual

DEAD @ the fact they were on the cover of People magazine celebrating their wedding just as they announced their divorce.

Katie Holmes and Josh Jackson dated and apparently it worked out fine after they broke up.
But that's the only example I can think of, tbh.
evett 28th-Mar-2014 09:47 pm (UTC)
I'd fuck other hot actors but never a co-star. that shit must be awkward as fuck for everyone on-set when you break up.
soul_amazinn 28th-Mar-2014 09:54 pm (UTC)
It could become uncomfortable on a television set but I don't see the big deal with it
blue_birds 28th-Mar-2014 09:24 pm (UTC)
I love her jacket.
mandramoddle 28th-Mar-2014 09:25 pm (UTC)
I'll forever have a girl crush on Keri Russell.

Theres this hilarious video of Matthew talking about how she's always hitting him when he makes jokes about her hair and I'm so pissed I can't embed it because it's hilarious.

Do you have a link anyway?
windinthewires 28th-Mar-2014 09:25 pm (UTC)
Can't see anything that suggests that they're more than friends. I wouldn't dress that casual on a date.
iprevail 28th-Mar-2014 09:29 pm (UTC)
for new york it's a fair outfit imo.
syphilisdiller 28th-Mar-2014 09:37 pm (UTC)
That outfit would be me being fancy.

I mean, if they're already coupled up they don't have to go on a 'fancy' date. It would be just them doing their thing as a couple.

Guess you didn't see this picture from intermission:

brosling 28th-Mar-2014 09:35 pm (UTC)

readmymiind 28th-Mar-2014 09:38 pm (UTC)

thisjoanissima 28th-Mar-2014 09:37 pm (UTC)
Oh so it's true? I don't care either way, but get that publicity so The Americans can go on for years.
oasisfan 28th-Mar-2014 10:16 pm (UTC)
Yes. I love this show!
anterrabre 28th-Mar-2014 09:37 pm (UTC)
They work together and like hanging out. I don't see anything unusual about this.
fakevoices 28th-Mar-2014 09:38 pm (UTC)
i don't blame her, he's hot!
laurshel 28th-Mar-2014 09:45 pm (UTC)
If you told me that she was 20 years old, I'd believe you instantly. Does this bitch age? lol
stonemesilly 28th-Mar-2014 09:45 pm (UTC)
I wish she didn't hate her curls so much.
it_llbeyourname 28th-Mar-2014 10:12 pm (UTC)
i know, it's kind of weird.
stonemesilly 28th-Mar-2014 10:25 pm (UTC)
The way she talked about it was bizarre too. Like it was her past and not who she is now...

it's just hair?
