Below you will see 5 popular Russian actors, who were filmed not only in Russian cinema, but also in Hollywood.

In just a couple of years, the actress starred in several Western projects, including in Wolverine with Hugh Jackman and in the movie “Spy, get out!” With Oscar-winning Colin Firth, the newspaper writes Tatler.

In the film about Wolverine, Svetlana Khodchenkova played a beautiful doctor named Viper, who poisoned the hero and temporarily deprived of his ability to regenerate. Excellent she turned out supervillain - elegant and ominous.

When asked if she dreams of her own Oscar, Svetlana replied: “Deep in her heart every actor thinks of it. It's nice to dream about it ... Actually, I would like to work in America, but for this you need to live there. And I do not want to move: all my family and loved ones are here. I do not want to be nostalgic for my homeland - I'd rather miss her on vacation. ”

Igor Zhizhikin quite often appears in American cinema and TV shows, continuing to be shot in Russia.

At the beginning of 2000, Igor tried to play in a movie, playing the Russian villain Bolotov in the film “The Bloody Work” by the legendary Clint Eastwood. The actor turned out to be so colorful and convincing that after a short time the sentences fell one after the other. Zizhikin took part in the work on the TV series “The Spy”, where Quentin Tarantino played with him, and his most notable role in Hollywood was, without doubt, the image of Colonel Dovchenko from the blockbuster Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Moreover, Spielberg said that Zizhikin was “the best of all possible bad guys.”


Vladimir Mashkov

Having remembered the Russian sex symbol in the Oscar-nominated film “The Thief”, Hollywood producers began calling Mashkova on various projects, the newspaper writes Tatler. And even if the second attempt to get the coveted statuette with the Russian picture again did not succeed (the film “Edge” also remained only in the nominees), there is enough work in Hollywood for Vladimir: among the most sensational works are filming the TV series “Spy” with Jennifer Garner and “Mission Impossible: Phantom Protocol "with Tom Cruise. By the way, Mashkov is a member of the Actors Guild of Hollywood, which, in particular, means that his rate in the USA cannot be lower than a million for a role (dollars, of course).
