Nadya Ginsburg

I heard around town that Jeff Subik tapped you to be Babka in The Couch TV series ... Who was your inspiration for the character?

So terribly sorry I just saw this. If you are still interested in the response...Babka is a character I've done for many years.

Originally she was part of a Russian singing duo Tony Orginiski and Babka. Then through the years she began a former prostitute, mail order bride who moonlights as a bikini waxer.

My grandmother is from Russia and spent part of my childhood in a Polish Ukrainian neighborhood, so I have an affinity for the Slavs.

Thanks so much for your support, and sorry it took me so long to respond!
