Multiple sources confirmed that the actress has been spending a lot of time with the actor and they look affectionate towards each other.
Keri Russell is hit with a dating rumor just a few weeks after her divorce from husband Shane Deary was publicly confirmed. The 37-year-old actress is reportedly dating her "The Americans" co-star Matthew Rhys who previously dated actress Sienna Miller but is now single.
The romance happened because they spent a lot of time together, a source told Page Six. Russell and Rhys star as a fake married couple in the hit FX show which is currently filming second season in New York.
She has been spotted "looking affectionate" with the Welsh actor and on-screen husband. They allegedly went on an intimate lunch at ABC Kitchen recently. "Seeing the way they are together I could have sworn they were a couple. They were so touchy-feely, drinking and laughing," the source said.
Their relationship was heading to something serious, according to another source, since they have spent time with their respective families. Reps for both parties have not commented on the rumor.
Russell's publicist confirmed in early December that the actress has ended her seven years of marriage. "They have been separated since early summer," the publicist told People. "The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children."
