Ex-Husband – Kurt Russell
Kurt grew up in Springfield, Massachusetts, and is acting royalty with his father Bing Russell, known for his work in the entertainment industry.
At a young age, he followed his father’s footsteps in pursuing a professional baseball career, which his father did before he transitioned to acting. He attended Thousand Oaks High School, and after matriculating began working on his acting career. He also served for six years with the California Air National Guard.
He began his career appearing in several television projects, before getting his first leading role in “The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters” playing the titular character – the show was based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. Afterwards he worked on shows such as “The Fugitive” and “The Virginian”.
Kurt was the final name that Walt Disney wrote before he passed away, and this led him to work on the film “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color” in which he portrayed Private Willie Prentiss. He then starred in the film “Fools’ Parade”, before later working on “The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Brand”.
The Success of Kurt Russell
In the 1970s, Kurt was the top star of Disney, and continued making prominent performances as the years progressed. In 1983, he had a supporting role in the film “Silkwood” which got a lot of praise with his performance leading to a Golden Globe Award. He also often collaborated with John Carpenter, appearing in various anti-hero roles as seen in “The Thing”, “Escape from New York”, and “Escape from LA”.
In 1986 he had a role in “Big Trouble in Little China’ which starred him alongside Dennis Dun; the film was a failure at the box office, but has since become a cult classic.
Russell’s successful career continued over the decades, with projects such as “Tango & Crash”, “Backdraft” and “Miracle”. In 2015, he appeared in the Quentin Tarantino film “The Hateful Eight” which also starred Samuel L. Jackson and Tim Roth, and in 2017 he was in the film “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” which is based on the superhero team of the same name created by Marvel. One of his latest projects is the film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” another collaboration with Quentin Tarantino, also starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.
Season started a relationship with Kurt Russell after meeting on the set of “Elvis”, which led to their marriage in 1979. They have a child , and stayed together until settling a divorce in 1983. Nine years later, she married David Hayball and their union lasted for two years but also ended in divorce. Since then, there have been no reports of any new relationships her way. Her former husband Russell, on the other hand, married actress Goldie Hawn and they’ve been together since. Season’s retirement from acting was abrupt in the 1990s, as she was still doing consistent work in the profession. One of the possible reasons she left the career was to settle down and focus on expanding her family, which may have occurred though it has never been confirmed.
