    Actor Keri Russell is honored with a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame on May 30, 2017, in Hollywood, California.

    Keri Russell, the Emmy-nominated star of the FX period spy drama "The Americans," received a star Tuesday on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    Speaking at the ceremony in front of The Study nightclub on Hollywood Boulevard, Russell was modest about her place among the luminaries who are immortalized on the walk.

    "When I think of Hollywood stars, I sort of think of these iconic people like, you know, Judy Garland or Johnny Carson, and I thought, 'Do they know something that I don't know? Am I about to die?''' she said.

    The ceremony came the same day as the airing of the final episode of the fifth season of "The Americans," in which Russell plays a KGB officer posing as a U.S. citizen in the 1980s.

    Russell first appeared on television on the "All-New Mickey Mouse Club" on Disney Channel from 1991-94, with castmates including Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.

    Russell's other television credits include the Hallmark Hall of Fame production "The Magic of Ordinary Days" and the TNT miniseries, "Into the West," which both premiered in 2005.

    Russell's film credits include "Waitress" and "Mission Impossible: III."
