There is a very definite Russian heart in me; that never dies. I think you're born and you live your life with it and you die with it.

I came to Los Angeles only after filming 'A Good Day to Die Hard,' when I was cast in the independent movie 'Delirium.' Director Lee Roy Kunz was looking everywhere for a Russian actress.
