The granddaughter of the great American comedian, prominent actor and film director Charlie Chaplin, Oona Chaplin said that she opposes the eternal image of Russians in the cinema, “as bad guys.”
He believes that in this way an “ideological war with Russia” is being waged, which Una Chaplin categorically opposes, who, like his grandfather, linked his life with cinema.
Chaplin’s statement was made in an interview in which he discussed the launch of the TV series Treason. In this picture, Una played one of the main roles – the wife of a British intelligence agent who is having a secret affair with a Russian spy, writes The Independent.
– I’m so tired of Russians being the bad guys… Can anyone think of a better stereotype we can work with? – she said.
Chaplin also said that the directors and producers of “Betrayal” at first did not think at all about the “Russian” trace in the script for the series. And they added “Russian” villains after the start of a special military operation of Russian troops in Ukraine.
She assessed the changes that occurred over the course of filming: “It just raised the stakes… It will be great when the ideological war we are waging with Russia is in the past.”
