Watch: SAG Conversations with Kurt Russell

Happy birthday, Kurt Russell! The child star-turned-cinematic bad ass turns 66 years old today.

As fans wait for Russell’s appearances in two major franchises later this year — The Fate of the Furious and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 — they can watch the Escape from New York star talk about his long career in Hollywood in this conversation presented by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation with Jenelle Riley of Variety. Russell did the Q&A session to promote his film Deepwater Horizon last year, which also starred his stepdaughter Kate Hudson. The film was based on the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

You can watch the Hollywood legend talk about his craft in the video above!
