Keri Russell Biography

Born Keri Lynn Russell on March 23, 1976 in Fountain Valley, CA, the oldest of three, she was raised in the Southwest and in Denver. Russell studied dancing from an early age. She later found that her love of dancing was good preparation for acting, insofar as both disciplines demanded self-discipline and an adherence to timing and choreography. Dancing led to a modeling stint, which in turn led to a trip to Los Angeles, where in 1991 she landed her first regular TV gig as one of the Mouseketeers on the Disney Channel's "All New Mickey Mouse Club". Russell stayed with the show until 1993, during which time she lived at Disney World, where the show was taped. During her time on the Mickey Mouse Club, Russell landed her first film role as the babysitter for a giant toddler in the Disney-produced sequel 1992's Honey, I Blew Up the Kid. After her TV commitment ended, Russell moved to Los Angeles . Read Full Bio >>
