It has been several months since Keri Russell and her husband split. Russell has been working on “The Americans” since the show began and it is getting ready to premiere Season 2 in February. Matthew Rhys is Keri Russell’s on-screen love, and it is now rumored that their romance has moved off-screen as well. According to a December 26 report from E! Online, earlier this week Russell and Rhys were spotted looking “couple-like” while shopping Brooklyn Heights. It seems that falling in love with a co-star isn’t too far off the norm for many celebrities.

“The Americans” is based on spies living in Washington D.C. during the Reagan era, which was in the 1980s. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are paired as lovers and the show has already been in production for the second season which will begin to air on FX in February. Russell was married for nearly seven years and has two children with her husband. It is being reported that the split was amicable and happened several months back.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys join a long list of celebrities that have fallen in love with co-stars while working with them. There has been no confirmation of the relationship from Russell or Rhys, but when they were photographed together they looked very much together.
