"The Americans" Co-stars Talk Real Life Punches on Set in GQ's February 2014
During their interview with the publication, the co-stars shared details about the show, including pre-take routines and character descriptions.
"The smack usually comes the second before they say 'Action,'" Matthew states about Kerri's real life punches. "Basically I am starting every scene with a slightly shocked look on my face and a red handprint on my cheek."
In regards to her part as Russian spy Elizabeth Jennings, Kerri says, "I love she's a mom who doesn't always get it right. She's making a bologna sandwich for her kids one minute and then blowing a guy in a hotel for intel the next."
