July 22, 2019

Dear friends, my husband Dmitry and I have welcomed a beautiful baby girl on July 22, 2019 at Kaiser Permanente Moanalua Medical Center in Honolulu, HI. Our family just grew by two tiny feet. We named the amazing new human Veronica Lea... I will be taking some time off to take care of baby Veronica and adjust to being a new mommy. Very exciting times for our family. Follow me on IG @bitdangerous for more updates and cuddly baby pics. We love you all! 

A French Dominatrix and World Renowned Transformative Psychologist Madame Toulouse Pous'set 

June 16, 2018

Several best episodes of filmed-in-Hawai'i "Potluck With Smooch" web-series were showcased to cast & crew and their guests at a private venue in Kailua, Hawai'i, on June 16th, 2018. An episode where Olga Guest Starred as a French Dominatrix and World Renowned Transformative Psychologist Madame Toulouse Pous'set was among those selected for the closed premiere. "Potluck With Smooch" is a comedic, cannabis infused cooking show which was part of the Creative Lab Hawai'i and will premiere to the public early next year. As for Olga's character Madame Pous'set, her methods might be questionable and the rules of her lair a bit controversial, but there are two things that are clear: 1) she is effective, and 2) she makes one hell of an infused crepe - a dish she calls Cray Cray Crepes. You can read more about the web-series here: http://www.potluckwithsmooch.com/about/

Olga is excited to share with you guys that the short film she produced and acted in for a 72 hours short film challenge in New York won in the November 2016 "Action/Thriller" category at the Hollywood International Moving Pictures Film Festival (HIMPFF) in Los Angeles. The award ceremony took part on January 7th, 2017 at the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.

Olga would love to thank her team for all of the hard work they put into making "In The Name Of..." and recognize all the female producers as well :))

72 Hours Short Film Challenge in NYC

September 28, 2016

Olga is super excited to share that she has just finished producing and acting in a 72 Hours Short Film Challenge in New York City during the month of September '16. In short, Olga was on a road trip with her family driving across the States from California to New York, stopping at major landmarks, when the producer of the 72 Hours film challenge literally challenged her to be a team leader/producer for the event and, as insane as she is, she accepted it. While still being on the road, Olga had to build a team: select a cast out of 100+ actors who had signed up for the challenge, find a screenwriter to write a script making sure every cast member gets enough screen time and then tweak the script to a theme which was released right before the challenge, then find a director, crew and editor, and, of course, locations... Yes!!! Olga says it was a fantastic experience and would NOT have been possible without such a fantastic team. The odds were in her favor and thanks to everyone's hard work, the film turned out to be great, was screened at a private showcase at "Professor Thom's" in NYC and is now being submitted to various film festivals. Olga is thankful to her team: Ken Burgin, Jorge Ferragut, Kisha Milling, Mel House, Laura Gaona and Sam Schmitz for making it happen. What a challenge, what a learning experience and growth as an actor and a producer! 

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Catch Olga in a principal role in "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates" opposite Zac Efron (High School Musical, Neighbors) and Adam DeVine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect).

Chekhov's The Proposal

July 01, 2016

Recently, Olga co-produced and acted in a short film tentatively entitled “Chekhov’s The Proposal”, which is an adaptation of a one-act comedic play by Anton Chekhov, a famous 19th century Russian story writer and playwright. Her character Natalia is a charming but opinionated 25-year old landowner who is dying to get married. Together with her Australian-American co-stars and co-producers Theo Coumbis (Lost, Hawaii 5-0) and Ken Matepi (Aloha, Hawaii 5-0), Olga has tirelessly worked on the theatrical production of the play, and then the film version — from the translation and screenplay adaptation stages, to developing a unique acting style and building a 19th century Russian set in Hawai’i. The film is currently in post-production. Please stay tuned for more updates :)
