Keri Russell on 'Felicity' legacy: 'The series still resonates'

Keri Russell has suggested that her series Felicity has remained popular over the years because the storylines were relatable.

The JJ Abrams-created series starred Russell as a college student searching for love at the fictional University of New York.

Russell recently told Parade that she looks back fondly on Felicity, which aired from 1998 to 2002.

"It was a really sweet, heartfelt show and it's funny because the creators were both men in their 30s when they wrote it," she teased.

The actress went on to say: "I think what people really related to was that time in your life when everything is possible.

"College is such a monumental time when your path in life is being decided, and it can go so many different ways, and every relationship you're forming can affect that and I think the show just really captured that."

Russell famously caused a national sensation during Felicity's run, when she changed her signature golden-curled hairstyle.

The change in Russell's hairstyle was even blamed for Felicity's declining ratings in later seasons.

Her latest television series The Americans airs on FX.
