Talk about life imitating art.
In the time-consuming second season of Netflix Russian doll, Chloe Sevigny plays Lenora, mother of Natasha Lyonnes character Nadia. When Nadia finds a metro portal that allows her to travel back in time, she realizes that she is trapped in her mother’s body while her mother is pregnant with her.
It’s a TV season that delves deep into the themes of motherhood, childhood innocence and confrontation with our parents’ mistakes. For Chloë, it could not have come at a more effective time. Chloë gave birth to her first child, a son Vanjain May 2020.
“I became a mom just before we recorded the second season,” Chloë told E! News. “I thought a lot about being a mother, about how I raise my child and the stories I tell him about his ancestors. How do I lead this young man through the world to be a good, strong, sensitive, fair individual?”
