Michelle Trachtenberg is playing Oswald's wife, Marina Oswald Porter. "I am so excited for the challenge to portray Marina Oswald, and to do my first role speaking only in Russian," the 27-year-old Gossip Girl star told Us Weekly in May. "I'm the only actor playing someone who is still alive, so I want to stay as true to her as possible."
