Keri Russell celebrates her 36th birthday today -- and to celebrate, we're taking a look back at the role that made her famous: The title character of The WB show "Felicity."

While Russell got her start on "The Mickey Mouse Club" with alums like Britney Spears and Ryan Gosling, it was her role as Felicity Porter, the girl who followed her high school crush to college in NYC, that really got people talking.

The attention around the show and it's ratings decline eventually led to a new rule in television: Never cut your lead cut their hair!

Since starring on "Felicity," which ended after 84 episodes in 2002, Russell went on to star in "Mission: Impossible III" and "Waitress."

She married carpenter Shane Deary in 2007 and now have two children together.
