The one moment Natasha Lyonne would like to relive

The mesmerising Natasha Lyonne has given more than one memorable performance in recent years with Russian Doll, Orange is the New Black, and Poker Face.

Lyonne has woven her magic behind the screen as well as on it with all these shows. In the whirlwind of a bustling career, there are certain moments that stand out, and for Lyonne, such a moment crystallised on the set of Russian Doll

During an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens: Live, Lyonne revealed the one day she would most want to relive is a day that captured the essence of her creative journey and the stillness amidst the storm.

Cohen quizzed Lyonne about the one day in her career she would want to relive the most, and the Russian Doll and Orange is the New Black star was hesitant at first, “Gosh, I don’t know.” 

But she quickly remembered the moment that sparked for her, “I did have a nice moment on Russian Doll. I do a lot of writing and directing. I co-created it with the director of Sleeping with Other People, Leslye Headland,” she said looking at fellow guest and Sleeping with Other People actor Allison Brie, “and Amy Poehler and I remember being on set writing, directing, starring during the pandemic this season and it was very stressful but I walked on and I was like, ‘Oh wow, I think this is exactly where I’m supposed to be anyway.’”

Lyonne went on to describe this moment as “very peaceful” as if all the noise had gone quiet, “It felt very peaceful in my soul like a white noise clicking sound, and I like that moment!”

Cohen also got to ask her who was the most intimidating famous guest star to work with on her latest series, Poker Face. The show has had several popular guest stars, from Adrien Brody to Chloë Sevigny. However, Lyonne went with Nick Nolte, “He was an intimidating but terrific guy because we’re both troublemakers.”

Natasha Lyonne’s latest hit, Poker Face, is an American crime drama streaming on Peacock. It is the brainchild of Knives Out and Glass Onion director Rian Johnson. 

With Lyonne in the lead as Charlie Cale, a fugitive casino worker who gets entangled in the deaths of many strangers, the “case-of-the-week” murder mystery has received plenty of praise, prompting a renewal for a second season. Lyonne’s portrayal has also earned her an Emmy nomination.
