“Basically I am starting every scene with a slightly shocked look on my face and a red handprint on my cheek,” Rhys says of his co-star’s semi-violent prep for shooting.
What kind of woman needs to do that? “She’s making a bologna sandwich for her kids one minute and then blowing a guy in a hotel for intel the next,” Russell explains of her character.
Believe it or not, this is the tame photo of the bunch — two other photos of Russell and Rhys from the article feature lingerie and the actors straddling each other. It’s sexy, provocative and more than a little disturbing.
Basically, it’s just about perfect for “The Americans.”
“The Americans” Season 2 premieres Wednesday, Feb. 26 on FX.
