Elizabeth and her husband, Philip (Matthew Rhys), posing as Washington suburbanites, are at odds: Always circumspect about their profession, he's out of the spy game, and now a full-time travel agent, their cover.Fiercely loyal, she's soldiering on, but clearly stressed.When he was 17 years old, he played Elvis Presley in a school musical and subsequently enrolled at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.Rhys’ professional career began while he was attending RADA.Multiple sources tell Page Six that Russell — who announced earlier this month that she and her husband Shane Deary have split after seven years of marriage — has been spotted “looking affectionate” with handsome Welsh-born actor Rhys, her on-screen husband on the hit FX show.

And it’s great when it’s 2 in the morning (at work) and it’s freezing outside and snowing and I get to have him there instead of a stranger."
