DEBUT 2014

Nadya is a feisty prison guard who runs Gulag 38B in Muppets Most Wanted. She is very affectionate of Kermit, even having a dedicated shrine of him. Interviewed by phone in the "Inside the Gulag" featurette, Nadya identifies herself as the warden.

When asked in an interview if she was playing a Russian villain, Tina Fey responded:

I actually play a Russian good guy, kind of. Who knows? Maybe she seems like the bad guy. But just before I called you I was on Skype with a dialect coach. And I was like, "Oh my gosh, this is for real. I have to try and do this!"[1]
