Rachel Keller is an American actress who is best known for her work on the small screen. After making a name for herself with a recurring role in Fargo, she was given a lead role in Legion, which premiered in 2017. Thus, Keller became a small screen goddess in such a short time.
Rachel Keller Bio/Wiki
Rachel Keller was born on 25 December 1992 in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA, where she also grew up. Not much is known about Keller’s upbringing, but as far as we know she was not born with a silver spoon, but she did not grow up poor either.
Keller studied at the St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University’s Drama School in 2014 with a degree in Drama. She began her acting career in 2012 with two short films: Still, Adore You, and Flutter. In 2014 she moved to Los Angeles and starred in another short film, Hollidaysburg.
But it wasn’t until 2015 that her career really took off. Keller had a guest role in The Mentalist and Supernatural, but the biggest break in her career came when she was offered the recurring role of Simone Gerhardt in the FX hit parade Fargo.
Before he was offered the role of Fargo, Keller worked in three jobs, including hostess, nanny, and dining car in Los Angeles. However, when she was drafted for Emmy winner Fargo, Keller immediately quit all three. It was the turnaround she had long been waiting for.
“When the reel arrived in my inbox, I thought, ‘This would be perfect for me. I had the accent in my back pocket – the Mahhhm’s and Dayyyud’s,” Keller said.
Things got even better when Noah Hawley called her again to audition for a “lead” role in his new Marvel series Legion, a spin-off from X-Men. “To have a man in the business say, ‘Come as you are,’ is really an incredible thing,” Keller said about Hawley.
Her Minnesota accent was no problem for her role in the Legion since she learned to turn it on and off in acting school.
“I think going to drama school will break it (the Minnesota accent) out of you,” Keller said in an interview with GQ. “I can turn it on and off now, but I couldn’t turn it off before. But I remember thinking when I got the audition that I had the accent in my back pocket.
Keller got the lead and was cast opposite Dan Stevens from Downtown Abbey.
“When I look at my body, I think, ‘I’m the lead in a TV show. Keller expressed her surprise to the Hollywood Reporter.
Although not much is known about her parents, Keller lived with her grandmother when she moved to LA in 2014. When GQ asked her about her grandmother, she said, “She’s a captain! She has a sailboat and belongs to a women’s sailing association here. It’s amazing.”
Rachel Keller is extremely private in her private life, it’s so annoying, especially for the millions of fans she has left in love with her beauty and outstanding acting skills. And we found out that she was always like that.
In her interview with GQ in 2015, Keller hinted that as a teenager she always kept people in the dark about her life. “I was the ‘nobody understands me’ teenager,” she said when the GQ interviewer asked about her life as a teenager. She continued, “But I think I’ve really realized now that I didn’t understand anything myself. So I just had to live something.”
And it turns out she has a lot more to do. Keller never revealed details of her romantic life to the media. Which is worse? Even on the other platform – the social media, where fans get a glimpse into the lives of their favorite stars – Keller keeps the doors locked.
Her Instagram account is private, which means she would most likely accept requests from friends and acquaintances.
And on Twitter, where fortunately there is no way to be private, she is very inactive and writes mostly about work. Come on, Keller…
Since all entrances to her romantic life are closed, it would be absurd to conclude that Keller is with someone. Right now, no one knows, except the people really close to her. Well, it’s Hollywood, and she can only stay under the radar too long… I’m hoping she’ll open up sooner rather than later.
