Keri Russell Talks ‘Star Wars’ And Expiration Dates In Hollywood

Keri Russell talks about “Star Wars”, being a shy person and how long she thinks she’ll end up working in Hollywood in a new interview with Town & Country.

Russell, who is set to star as Zorri Bliss in the upcoming “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”, says of her character having to wear a mask in the much-talked-about flick: “…It was very attractive, the idea of not being the lead. The mask – I felt safe in it. And tough.”

The actress adds of balancing work and family life: “I see a lot of other people who have great ambition, but I feel as if my life is so full, with little kids. I’m not hungry for a certain type kind of success.”

Russell may be a star, but she says she’s still shy when you put a camera in front of her.

“Being photographed is a skill, and I’m not good at it. I’m a shy person, so it’s embarrassing. And I’m 43 now, so I’m able to say it’s embarrassing to me. It’s weird. I always look bad!”

She says of whether she feels she has an expiration date in Hollywood: “I do think about it. And I feel that [the time dwindling for roles] should sort of be now. But at the same time, I just got an incredible offer to do something. A really, really rich story. Maybe it doesn’t stop.”

The new issue of Town & Country hits newsstands November 27.
