Armando Iannucci recently talked about The Death of Stalin and now some of the cast members have done the same. Steve Buscemi and Andrea Riseborough, who play Nikita Khrushchev and Svetlana Stalina in the film respectively, spoke to Collider on a press day in Los Angeles for the promotion of the film. Both Buscemi and Riseborough discussed what attracted them to star in The Death of Stalin as well as working with Armando Iannucci.

The Death of Stalin

Let us start with the comments about why they decided to be a part of this project:

Steve Buscemi: “I got the script that Armando Iannucci co-wrote and knew who the other cast members were going to be or could possibly be, and then read it and went, ‘Oh, my god, where do I fit in?! How do I do this?’ And then, I had a lovely talk with Armando on the phone and he very calmly, as he does, reassured me that I’d fit in and it would all work out, and it did.”

Andrea Riseborough: “I was so thrilled by the thought of getting to work with Armando, and was so excited that Steve was in negotiations to be a part of it. That was a huge draw for me. Really, my first thought was, ‘Who was this woman?’ There was so much information on Svetlana, so I truly felt very fortunate, in that way.”

Steve Buscemi also discussed what it was like to work with Armando Iannucci in The Death of Stalin:

We had incredible faith in him from his past work, but also from working and rehearsing with him. He had a two-week rehearsal period, which was so important because we got to know each other and become friendly. He would always remind us that friends can turn on each other, in that atmosphere, in a heartbeat. It was all about survival. They had to be that way because they could be on the chopping block.”
