Scott Foley On Why 'Felicity' Still Resonates Today


"Felicity" may be 15 years old, but the show is still near and dear to many people's hearts. Why are we still talking about that curly-haired co-ed who traveled to New York for school?

Scott Foley -- known an Noel to "Felicity" fans -- said it's because the voices of "Felicity."

"It captured the zeitgeist in way that I think spoke to a lot of people," Foley told HuffPost TV at a recent "Scandal" event in New York. " It was J.J. Abrams' first television show. He and his partner Matt Reeves had a wonderful way of telling stories in this other girl, Keri Russell, who you just wanted to look at and want to be around the same way you do with ["Scandal" star] Kerry Washington.

"And then it also had Scott Speedman," he said. "Who doesn't like Scott Speedman?"

The WB series ran for four seasons between 1998-2002 and helped launch the careers of Foley, Russell and Speedman.

"Felicity" is currently available on Hulu Plus.
