“People assume all the time: Your husband got the van, and he’s dragging you along,” says Hagner. Russell chimes in: “It’s the opposite—though I wouldn’t call it dragging me along, either.” She grew up between Houston and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, backpacking with her father, including a traverse through the Rockies and four weeks on the Appalachian Trail. He spent a youth mostly outdoors at the Colorado ranch belonging to his parents (Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn). In 2018, the couple, both actors, purchased a Mercedes Sprinter van retrofitted with a Scandi-style blond-wood interior and equipped with all the trimmings—stovetop, dining banquette, modular seating, and sleeping areas—for #vanlife. “Vacations were always a little difficult because we have to plan last-minute because of our jobs,” explains Russell, who currently stars in the Marvel series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Now they head off for monthlong treks at the drop of a hat, spending days behind the wheel and nights beneath the stars in Shasta National Forest or Glacier National Park. “It’s funny because it can look so romantic sometimes,” Hagner says, “but more often than not you’re in a timed shower in a rest stop, laughing because you didn’t get enough quarters and the water stops while your hair’s still covered in soap.” The arrival of a baby, though—little Buddy Prine Russell was born shortly after this shoot—necessitates bigger quarters. “I mean, as soon as we can get our new van constructed, we’re going to be on the road with him,” says Hagner. “That’ll be a whole new set of adventures.” [Source]
I’ve updated the gallery with high quality screencaptures of Wyatt’s first appearance in The Good Lord Bird.
I’ve updated the gallery with the newly released stills of Wyatt as First Lieutenant J. E. B. Stuart in the upcoming mini series “The Good Lord Bird”.
Wyatt made a surprise appearance yesterday in Disney’s Annual D23 Expo, where a presentation about the upcoming Disney+ show “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier” included an announcement about him joining the cast as John Walker.
At D23, Marvel Studios executive producer Kevin Feige just announced two more stars joining the Disney+ series Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Emily VanCamp returns as Sharon Carter and newcomer Wyatt Russell will be joining the MCU as John Walker aka U.S. Patriot.
Feige introduced the two actors on stage at D23 today along with stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, who will be reprising their roles as Falcon and Winter Soldier respectively. Sharon Carter, who is Peggy Carter’s niece, featured prominently in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and briefly showed up in Captain America: Civil War.
Russell is the newest addition to the series, and will be playing Walker, a government-sanctioned replacement for Captain America who has a complicated relationship with Steve Rogers’ legacy. It’s unclear how Walker will appear in the Falcon and The Winter Soldier series, and whether he will be a hero or villain. [Source]
