CRAVE ONLINE – Season two of STARZ’s original series “Magic City” is underway and Vera is about to take the stage in tonight’s episode.
We sat down with Vera’s portrayer, Olga Kurylenko to discuss her role as the wife of Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and now we’re getting to see all the fruits of her labor. During our interview, Kurylenko offered her thoughts on the Evans’ marriage and spoke about her dance training. I also asked her a few 007 questions, because I am a Quantum of Solace defender.
Is Vera playing a much bigger part in Ike’s business this season?
In this season, I really enjoyed doing it because I think there was more for me to do. First of all, I get to dance, so I was training for a month, preparing my performance. That was great, to perform on stage in front of all this audience. A lot of similar themes are going through the second season, like Vera is still trying to stay very close to her family and create her own family. She’s still on the road to trying to have a baby, but in this season new opportunities open up. A bit odd opportunities, but it is a way for her to have a baby but I can’t give it away.
I’ve uploaded some behind the scenes photos of Olga and co-star Ben Affleck from the set of To the Wonder to the gallery. Be sure to take a look.

VARIETY.COM – Olga Kurylenko, Luke Bracey and Bill Smitrovich are joining Pierce Brosnan in the action-thriller “November Man,” directed by Roger Donaldson.
The castings were announced at Cannes on Friday — three days before the start of production in Europe — by producers Beau St. Clair of Irish Dreamtime and Sriram Das of Das Films. The Solution is handling international rights and CAA represents the U.S. rights.
Brosnan’s Irish DreamTime announced the project at Cannes last year as part of a multipicture financing and distribution deal with the Solution Entertainment Group, with “November Man” set as the launch title and framed as a potential franchise-starter.
Script has been written by Michael Finch and Karl Gajdusek (“Oblivion”) and developed from Bill Granger’s “There Are No Spies,” the seventh book in Granger’s 13-part “November Man” series.
Brosnan portrays an ex-CIA operative pitted against his former pupil, played by Bracey. The two are in a race to find a woman — portrayed by Kurylenko — who is hiding from her past and who holds the key to an international conspiracy.
