I was already attached to this project, and at the time it was one of my first major roles in a major Netflix series. But we didn't start filming, we immediately closed down because of covid. And I realized that I simply cannot play a person even from the Soviet Union. I ended my contract with Netflix and I had a bit of a problem [because of that]. The next job I do with Netflix, I owe them 50% of my salary because I broke that contract, Sakhno said.
