Christina Hendricks makes ‘magic’ in TV’s hottest new anthology series, The Romanoffs

IF Christina Hendricks was hoping to recreate some magic by reuniting with her nine-time Emmy award-winning Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, it appears to have worked.

The much-missed show’s breakout star earned six Emmy nominations playing buxom feminist Joan Holloway, a role which positioned her as one of the most mesmerising actors of television’s modern renaissance.

Cast again by Weiner in his hotly-anticipated new series, The Romanoffs, Hendricks is back at her best, reuniting with former Mad Men co-stars, John Slattery and Jay R. Ferguson, as well as a phenomenal list of big and small screen favourites, including Diane Lane, Noah Wyle and Australia’s Radha Mitchell — all of whom play people who believe themselves to be descendants of the famously doomed Romanov dynasty.

Hendricks is the protagonist in episode two of 10 — a fish-out-of-water tale where reality and fantasy are indecipherable.

In a role she describes as “the closest I’ve ever played to me,” Hendricks is diva movie star, Olivia Rogers — dispatched to Prague to replace an actress, playing one of the Romanoffs in a film, who has left the production under mysterious circumstances.

When Olivia arrives on set, she is met with a highly combative and eccentric director (Oscar winner, Isabelle Huppert), and an ego maniac of a leading man (Jack Huston).

Olivia discovers she has been cast partly because of her physical attributes, complimented for filling out the costume in ways her predecessor did not.

For Hendricks, it’s a familiar refrain, with much made of her Marilyn Monroe-esque, hourglass figure — a rarity in modern Hollywood and fashion catwalks of the world.

More’s the pity, the 43-year-old tells TV Guide, concerned by the pressure put on women to adhere to a ‘thin is in’ norm.

While the natural-born blonde began dyeing her hair red at the age of 10 (inspired by her love of Anne Of Green Gables), she insists she’s “never been asked to change my look.”

“I just think it’s unfortunate that we look to fashion magazines [for] inspiration because obviously they are a bit of fantasy. Those girls are mostly 16 and 17 years old, so it’s very hard for a grown woman to look like that … it’s tricky.

“We put too much pressure on ourselves to try and achieve that,” she says, urging women “to be nicer to ourselves and really embrace and love our individuality.”

Playing a character plagued by insecurities like Olivia left an imprint on Hendricks, just as being bold and assured like Joan did in Mad Men.

“You’ve got to tap into those [insecurities] that you know about yourself and explore that: wanting to be respected, wanting to be liked, hoping that you’ve earned it and that you’ve proved it,” Hendricks explains.

She filmed her Romanoffs scenes in Czechoslovakia, with the anthology series shot in seven countries, including France, China and the UK.

At a rumoured cost of $6 million per episode, it’s not only one of the most ambitious TV projects to date, but also one of the most expensive.

Both Prague and the production won Hendricks heart, she says: “It was honestly the best thing I’ve ever worked on. A truly magical experience.”

Thanks to the marriage of former Suits star Meghan Markle to Prince Harry, fascination with royalty is arguably at an all-time high — it just doesn’t interest Hendricks in the way this Russian royal mystery does.

The execution deaths of the real Romanovs, following orders from then-Soviet leader, Vladimir Lenin, have long intrigued — with the remains of the youngest daughter, Anastasia, never found.

“Even though it happened so many generations ago there’s an element of, ‘did one really survive?’ and that has kept it interesting and tragic at the same time,” Hendricks says, adding “people love a mystery.”

I agree. I don't know for sure obviously but it's probably hard for her to find stuff that's flattering for her body because she's so curvy. Like I can imagine that stuff that fits fine on other women probably ends up being really revealing on her.

Hence why she's wearing a dress where she's super covered up.
