Although smoking isn't as socially acceptable as it used to be, plenty of people around the world still smoke, and it's a habit plenty of characters in TV shows and movies also have. But some roles have actors looking like they smoke so much, fans start to wonder if it's something they do in real life.
In the Netflix series Russian Doll, software engineer and main character Nadia Vulvokov (Natasha Lyonne) smokes a lot. In fact, she smokes so much that fans of the show are wondering if actress Natasha has picked up the habit in real life. Here's what we know.
Does Natasha Lyonne smoke?
It seems like those cigarettes on Russian Doll are real because Natasha has also been seen smoking while the cameras aren't rolling. In March 2021, The Daily Mail caught her alongside co-star Chloë Sevigny between takes of the Netflix show. And in the first paragraph of this interview with Rolling Stone, the writer also mentions that the actress is smoking.
In fact, Natasha smokes so much that there's an entire Instagram account dedicated to her addiction. Natasha Lyonne Smoking features all kinds of shots of the actress — whether she's in public, in a photoshoot, or in character — with a cigarette in hand.
On this Instagram account, the first post was made on Dec. 4, 2022. And, as of now, the latest post is from April 20, 2022. It's a photo credited to Jacqueline City that looks to be a candid shot of Natasha smoking as she crosses the street in New York City.
On top of that, there is this tweet Natasha made in October of 2019 that reads, "Everywhere’s a smoking section if you use your imagination."
Is 'Russian Doll' ending?
As of right now, Season 3 of Russian Doll hasn't been confirmed. But if it did get the green light, it could be the last season of the show. According to the show's trivia section on its IMDb page, Natasha said that Russian Doll was pitched to Netflix for three seasons.
Overall, fans seem to love Russian Doll, so it's very likely that a third season could be on its way. The second season premiered on Netflix on April 20, 2022.
