Hopefully they”ll want to grow with me.”
On “Killing Kennedy”:
“I was very intrigued that Marina [Oswald], who is sill alive, was a little-known person in the famous JFK story. Having a Russian background, I also was interested in the challenge of bringing that authentic accent/Russian-speaking part of her character to the screen. Plus, I”ve always been a fan of the JFK story and all of the mystery surrounding it. This is the first film to really focus on the Oswalds and bring to light some of the reason behind the choices that led to Lee Havey Oswald”s horrible act.”
