Biography


A lovely, talented, plus charming actress, Keri Lynn Russell sure has all the quality needed to captivate every person's heart and shine brightly as one of the most promising starlets of the 21st century in Hollywood. Born as the second child of David Russell and Stephanie Stephens on March 23, 1976 in Fountain Valley, California, the green-eyed beauty spent most of her childhood living in Dallas, Texas then Mesa, Arizona where she later flourished a passion for dancing in her early teens. Soon became a skilled dancer, it was this knack of her that delightfully led the young girl to be accepted in the Mesa Stars Dance and Drill team, and more importantly, to appear on "Star Search" through which she was noticed by Disney's talent scouts to finally be cast as the regular performer on "The All New Mickey Mouse Club" in 1991.

Already settled in Denver, Colorado around that time while also studying at the state's Highlands Ranch High School, Keri boldly left the city to carry out her stint on the show, gradually developing another craft in acting there, thanks to its 1993 dramatic series segment of "Emerald Cove." Added with the cinematic experience she got through Disney's comedic sci-fi flick of "Honey I Blew Up the Kid" (1992), all the performances subsequently provided her with enough confidence to build a decent acting career when she left the program in 1993. Landed her feet in Los Angeles, the comely teen afterwards managed to be involved in various small screen productions for the next couple years, either TV series like "Daddy's Girls" (1994) and "Malibu Shores" (1996) or TV-movie features of "The Babysitter's Seduction" (1996) and "When Innocence Is Lost" (1997).
