  • Hostility on the Set: Odin Biron (Phil Richards) has been the target of a devoutly religious and fervently patriotic Ivan Okhlobystin (Doctor Bykov) ever since his arrival. It started with Okhlobystin frequently saying that America should be bombed, though he put a side-note about sparing Biron's home state, Minnesota. But the worst came after Biron came out as gay, which unleashed a new brand of hate from Okhlobystin, according to whom, "sodomites aren't human" and "gays should be burned in ovens", and who had already sent letters to President Putin demanding to outlaw homosexuality. This was reportedly so unbearable that Biron had strongly considered leaving the show during its final season.
