Hot or Not:

Not Cool: “It’s hard when you have no money. Once, when I was a student, I visited Moscow briefly. It was January, freezing, and didn’t have a cent. If my pockets weren’t so empty, I would have bought some vodka.”

Cool: I love rewatching black-and-white Marx Brothers comedies. I’ve been a huge fan since childhood.

Not Cool: Parts of “cool guys” or one-dimentional protagonists. I would much rather play villains. They tend to be more complex.

Cool: I would love to play James Tyrone from “Long Day’s Journey Into Night,” or Behemoth from “Master and Margarita.” He is incredibly charming. (Translator’s note: Guys, you don’t understand! Behemoth is a giant cat. A. Giant. Cat! And this is one of my favorite books ever, and the fact that AS knows it, loves it, and wants to play … not the Master, not the Devil, not even Ivan, but THE GIANT CAT?! Just makes me love him even more, which I didn’t think was possible!)

Cool: I sometimes like to run away to the Stockholm archipelago. My parents have a house there, on one of the islands. There I can turn off my phone, read, and wonder around the forest as much as I like.
