This article will give you every detail you need to know about the favorite star members of The Americans cast in real life.
The plot of the series revolve around who two Russian spies, who are married to each other and have children together, pose as Americans while living in Washington DC during the cold war situation. The couple of spies shown in this series are communist and they are faced with those two issues that stand in opposition to collectivism as a world view: individuality (Philip meets this through EST and Elisabeth meets this through art) – and religion (their relationship to their daughter and her pastor). Also, the eternal political conflict between integrity, humanity, and moderation on the one side and self-sacrifice, brutality, and duty on the other is explored to its core. Finally, the acting is overwhelmingly heartfelt and on the highest level: Characters like Stan, Philip, Elizabeth, Paige, Martha, Oleg, Nina, and Grannie seem as real as “real” people. This series won the Golden Globes this year for Best Drama TV Series and the leads (Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) each won.
