Who is Boston Russell?

Born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 16 February 1980 under the air sign of Aquarius, Boston Oliver Grant Russell is a 39-year-old American production assistant. His involvement in the world of show business is relatively minor, but he is better known for being the oldest child of popular actor Kurt Russell and his first wife, singer and actress Season Hubley. Given the fact that his entire family (and ancestors, too) are big names in the movie industry, he has been exposed to copious amounts of media attention ever since he was a small boy.

Funnily, despite having all the resources in the world, he has opted not to become an actor or any sort of entertainer, instead, choosing mostly to live far away from the public eye.

Early Life

Boston’s story begins in 1979, which is when Kurt Russell met Season Hubley, his bride-to-be, on the set of “Elvis”, a biographical picture about the life and times of the late king of rock ‘n’ roll. Hubley and Bing Russell played Presley’s parents, while Kurt himself played the rockstar. They immediately realized they were meant to be together, and married just a few months into their relationship.

However, their marriage lasted just five years, and they went their separate ways in 1983. Boston was their only child, and he’s stated that the divorce kind of shook him. ‘It’s never a pleasant thing to live through’, said Boston in a later interview. ‘I’m just glad they did the right thing. Lots of couples doesn’t see eye to eye and stay married, which is detrimental to kids.’ There is no information about Boston’s education level. It is believed that be went to a private school in Los Angeles, but then there’s no record of him attending college.


As for his family relations, Boston doesn’t have any biological siblings, but does have three step-siblings. Wyatt Russell, his oldest step-brother, is the child of Kurt Russell and his second wife, Goldie Hawn – his career path is quite an interesting one, as he was a hockey goaltender for the University of Alabama Charges of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and then several professional teams. After suffering several devastating injuries, he switched to acting and became quite successful.

His most notable films are “Escape from L.A” (with his dad Kurt in the lead role), “We Are What We Are”, “22 Jump Street” and “Overlord”. He also appeared in an episode of the sci-fi show “Black Mirror”. Kate and Oliver Hudson, on the other hand, are from Goldie Hawn’s first marriage, as their dad is Bill Hudson. Both Oliver and Kate are renowned actors, and Boston is quite close to them, despite lacking a blood relationship.

What Happened to His Mother, Season Hubley?

Season was a well-regarded actress in the 1970s and ‘80s, but the deterioration of her marriage to Kurt also led to the demise of her career.

She struggled to find consistency in her professional life, and retired from acting in 1998. After Kurt, she tied the knot with David Hayball in 1992, but they split up in 1994, since when she’s apparently been single. Despite all that had happened, Boston maintains a good relationship with his mom, and they spend time with each other on a regular basis.

Boston’s Career in Entertainment

Initially, Boston appeared in a few independent projects, but soon realized that acting just wasn’t for him. However, he would leave his mark on “Executive Decision”, a hit action movie starring his father Kurt.

In 2005, we could see him in an episode of “60 Minutes” devoted to his step-mother, Goldie Haw, but there’s no other trace of Boston in show business. Nobody really knows why he ignored the acting profession, but there are rumors that he didn’t handle the spotlight very well as a child. There’s a saying in Hollywood, which goes: “Those who grow up in the spotlight tend to stay away from it” and Boston just might be a testament to its validity.

Personal Life: Does Boston Russell Have a Girlfriend?

As Russell is a private person, there is no information about his current romantic endeavors, nor  do we know anything about any past love affairs – for years now, he has successfully evaded all media attention. Seeing him sit down for an interview is a rarity, and he’s almost never seen in public. However, judging by the social media profiles of his siblings, he is very close to his family, and present at literally every gathering of the Russell clan.

Online Presence

You’ve probably guessed it – Boston is absent from all social media sites. He obviously detests people knowing every move he makes, and wants to stay lowkey. After doing a bit of digging, we found out about a personal profile of his on Facebook. It indubitably belongs to him, but it’s been inactive since mid-2017.
