Former ‘Rescue Me’ child actress credits country music for helping her heal after leukemia diagnosis

Natalie Archer was born to perform.

After years of musical theater and commercial stints, Natalie, born Natalie Distler, booked a TV pilot at the age of 14 for a show called “Rescue Me,” which turned into a seven-year gig working alongside Denis Leary as his wild-child daughter, Colleen.

In the midst of finding success on the popular FX firefighter series, Natalie doubled down on her efforts and pursued her other true love, music. 

She met the man of her dreams, Kyle Archer, in an elevator ride to a producer’s studio in New York.

They’re surrounded by a “solid group of people” and hope to continue sharing their stories and experiences through songs and on stage.

“We’re just so grateful for where we are right now, and we just want to keep the train going,” Natalie said.
