What You Didn’t Know About Season Hubley’s Career, Failed Marriages and Son

Season Hubley is one of those actresses who many believed was one good role away from becoming an A-list actress. The New York native, however, remained reclusive for the most part of her almost three-decade-long career and was never quite able to reach the heights many people had envisioned that she would attain.

Hubley, who also worked as a singer in a career that ran from 1972 to 1999, is best known for her role in the 1979 made-for-television biographical film, Elvis, where she plays the role of Priscilla Presley, the partner to the legendary musician Elvis Presley who was played by her to be husband, actor Kurt Russell.

How Season Hubley Launched Her Acting Career

Season Hubley appears to have been inspired to pursue a career in the performing arts due to the fact that her father was a writer among other things. It is, however, not clear if the young girl was able to get all the prerequisite training she needed to make it in the movie world as there are no records of her ever being trained in theatre or attending a drama program in school.

Born on March 14, 1951, in the Big Apple, Hubley landed her first acting role in 1972 in the TV movie Bobby Jo and the Good Time Band where she played the titular role of Bobby Jo. That same year, she also appeared in an episode of the sitcom, The Partridge Family. In 1973, the actress appeared in two films, first in Lolly-Madonna XXX where she again played the titular character and then in She Lives! where she appeared as Pam Rainey. Other projects in the 1970s she appeared in are Catch My Soul (1974), the ABC drama series Family (1976-1977), SST: Death Flight (1977), Hardcore (1979), Elvis (1979), and Mrs. R’s Daughter (1979).

In the 1980s, industry insiders felt that Season Hubley was just one good role away from being the next big thing as she had held her own in the 70s playing mainly supporting roles. The actress began the decade by bagging roles in the movies Escape from New York (1981) and Vice Squad (1982) before appearing in made-for-television films like A Caribbean Mystery (1983), The Three Wishes of Billy Grier (1984), and The Key to Rebecca (1985). Unfortunately, as the decade was running out, it was clear to see for everyone that Hubley was not quite cut out for the big stage as she was unable to land starring roles in big projects.

The next major project Season Hubley appeared in was the longrunning soap opera All My Children (1992-1994) where she played the role of Angelique Voynitzheva Marick. She then appeared in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 in 1998 and the revival series Flipper in 1999 before deciding to call it quits on her career.

Details About Her Marriages and Why They Failed

Season Hubley has been married and divorced twice. Her first marriage was to Emmy and Golden Globe Award-nominated actor, Kurt Vogel Russell, who she started dating on the set of Elvis where they played love interests; Priscilla and Elvis Presley. By the time the film was released, Hubley and Russell decided to take their love to the next level by exchanging marital vows on March 17, 1979.

About a year after they wedded, the couple welcomed a son named Boston Russell on the 16th of February, 1980. Everything looked to be going well in the Russell household until it was announced that they were parting ways in 1983.

Following her divorce from Russell, Season Hubley stayed off any romantic affairs until her path crossed with that of actor David Hayball. It is not exactly clear when the pair began dating but Hayball was eventually able to convince Hubley to marry him and they wedded in 1992. Unfortunately, the actress’s second attempt at marriage was not any different from the first one as it again ended in divorce. The couple called it quits in 1994 and the actress has since then remained single.

What We Know About Her Son

Season Hubley’s only child, Boston Russell, was raised away from the limelight by his mother. Regardless of the fact that his parents divorced when he was still very young, he was still able to have a very good relationship with his father who later entered into a longterm relationship with actress and producer Goldie Hawn. Boston and his father’s child with Hawn, actor and former ice hockey player Wyatt Russell, as well as actress Kate Hudson who is Hawn’s daughter from a previous marriage, have a very healthy relationship.

With everyone in the family having once had or are still enjoying careers in the acting and filmmaking business, Boston opted to get into the family business, making a living as an actor. He has, however, not been as successful as other members of his family as he is only known for his work on Executive Decision (1996) which featured his father and Steven Segal in starring roles.
