Official site for actress and activist, Olesya Rulin.
“I’m a woman that loves this planet deeply, feels deeply and tells stories for a living. I grew up in a little village 4 hours north of Moscow Russia (formerly USSR). My family and I lived off the land, off the grid, most of my formative years. This kind of childhood allowed for me to fall in love with nature and build a connection to the rhythm of life you find when in balance with the seasons. Once Communism collapsed my family immigrated to America in 1992 at the end of the Cold War. My parents are taxidermist by trade (stuffing animals for museums and private collections) and they started their business in the state of Utah. I started acting at the age of 12 and have continued to do it to this day. I currently live in LA and help my mother run a small 140-acre nature preserve in Russia located in the village where I grew up. My life is anything but conventional… I try not to think about the how’s and what’s of it all too much… even I can’t seem to find the answers… but I love every experience and every moment so far. This blog is my little creative outlet where I share who I am outside of the characters I play on t.v. Nice to meet you.”
