Olga Kurylenko Said Shooting 'The Death of Stalin' Took Her Back to Childhood

Olga Kurylenko stopped by the Variety Studio presented by Dubai Film Festival and Empire to talk about her film “The Death of Stalin” and how shooting it brought her back to childhood.

“To play a Russian character, even though it is a satire, in a film that takes place in the country I was born was very interesting,” Kurylenko said. “And I had to play piano which took me back to my days when I lived back in the country. To play onscreen, it was great to be able to use those skills I learned as a little kid.”
