The Ukrainian actor who played Putin's role has answered whether he is afraid of associations with the dictator and the end of his movie career

Dmytro Oliynyk speaks about his role as Putin

Ukrainian actor Dmytro Oliynyk, who played the role of dictator Vladimir Putin in the movie The House of Slovo, admitted that his resemblance to the Russian leader does not scare him. Moreover, the actor considers it a compliment when people tell him about the feeling of disgust caused by the image of a Ukrainian on the screen.

While Oliynyk recognizes his partial visual resemblance to Putin, he is not worried about becoming a one-man show. He spoke about this in an interview with Alina Dorotiuk.

"The acting profession is such that many actors, I think, dream of some very significant roles that have a lot of screen time, even if they are negative. I really like negative characters in movies. I doubt that Hollywood actors when they play negative characters, are afraid that people will start to identify them," the artist suggested.

He also emphasized that the filming did not aim to completely copy the behavior of the young dictator. However, the visual resemblance of the make-up Oliynyk to the dictator played a significant role in the audience's perception of the character.

The Ukrainian suggests that after the film's premiere, he may be associated with Putin, but he is not afraid of this.

"I'm not worried about this because, firstly, there are no invitations yet, and secondly, frankly speaking, in the context of what's happening in general, this is the last thing I think about. I'm not afraid, because I haven't acted much in a long time, I don't have a thirst for acting in movies. I consider myself to be a fairly realized actor in the theater," Oliynyk added.
