Sultry, fire-haired Russian actress Natalya Rudakova shot from obscurity to fame in a single instant, when the young woman -- then working at a hair salon in Manhattan -- caught the eye of French filmmaking legend Luc Besson on the street. In need of a new femme fatale for their sci-fi action thriller Transporter 3, Besson and co. recruited Rudakova on the spot, subjected her to six months of disciplined acting lessons, and gave her a screen test vis-à-vis some seasoned professionals. She got the job instantly, cast in the said film opposite Jason Statham.
