Venus in Fur Star Nina Arianda on Misbehavin', Meeting Woody Allen and Crushing on the Fonz

Venus in Fur Star Nina Arianda on Misbehavin', Meeting Woody Allen and Crushing on the Fonz
Nina Arianda & Paul Wontorek

Nina Arianda first turned heads in her Tony-nominated performance as ditzy showgirl Billie Dawn in the Broadway revival of Born Yesterday and is now playing Vanda, a mysterious aspiring actress in David Ives’ erotically charged Venus in Fur. Broadway’s newest darling stopped by Show People to dish with host Paul Wontorek about growing up Ukrainian, her mellifluous name and learning about Les Miserables by playing with paper dolls. The actress also discussed her obsession with Downton Abbey, revealed that Woody Allen checked her out online before meeting with her (which led to her big screen role in the Oscar-nommed Midnight in Paris) and admitted that she'll do anything to be in the world of theater. Click below to take a trip with this out-of-this-world star and get a lesson in the world’s newest language: “Ukringlish.”
