The Diplomat: Keri Russell’s Latest Adventure
Kerri Russell’s acting career has seen her taking on diverse roles, with significantly different challenges. Earlier this year, she starred in the surprise hit movie, “Cocaine Bear,” directed by Elizabeth Banks. The film’s plot is as wild as its title suggests: a bear high on cocaine goes on a deadly rampage through the woods near a small town.
In contrast, her upcoming role as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom in the Netflix series “The Diplomat” presents a different kind of challenge. Her character, Kate Wyler, must navigate the complex and political nature of her job while also maintaining a healthy marriage with her husband, played by Rufus Sewell. Alongside Russell, the series also features other talented actors such as David Gyasi, Ato Essandoh, and Rory Kinnear.
