It’s the day after the world premiere of the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in San Francisco. Keri Russell is on the day two of doing press for the movie. She spent the day doing on-camera interviews with her co-stars, Jason Clarke and Gary Oldman with the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in the background—which is practically annihilated on the DOTPOTA movie poster. She’s been on the phone with press for God knows how long, but the by the time it’s my turn to talk with her, she still looks and acts as though her day just started.
“An in-person interview? I thought it was another phone interview!” Russell says excitedly as I sit down across from her.
