Yuliya Snigir is best known for being a Russian model and actress, but she is about to break out in next week’s ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’. Casting for the film was heavily scrutinized, with almost every major young actor trying out for the part of Bruce Willis’ part, which eventually went to rising star Jai Courtney. However, Yuliya Snigir was largely overlooked until the trailers came out, when she managed to catch everyone’s attention with a striptease out a leather jacket.
As her IMDB page has been blowing up and people have been asking about her, Yuliya has been doing her best to conduct her professional duties as professionally as possible. For an actress whose previous major credits include music videos, modeling campaigns, and Russian films, this is a huge break and will likely pave the way for her to make it big in Hollywood.
While she was promoting the movie, Yuliya spoke to Flicks and Bits about working with Bruce Willis, saying, “I’ll always remember working with Bruce Willis. He’s such a great actor and he’s so charismatic – he’s fantastically charismatic! You can’t stop looking at him when he gets going. And in this film and with all of the ‘Die Hard’ movies, it’s Bruce personality as John McClane that I think has been so appealing to people. So getting to watch that was incredibly exciting, it was very inspiring. I learnt a lot watching him and seeing how he works. It was priceless.”
‘A Good Day to Die Hard’ releases on February 14th and along with Yuliya, Bruce Willis, and Jai Courtney, the film also co-stars Sebastian Koch, Mary Elizabeth Winstead [who played Willis’ daughter in Live Free or Die Hard], and Rasha Bukvic.
