Russian actor Danila Kozlovsky stars opposite British actress Keira Knightley in a new advert for the Chanel perfume Coco Mademoiselle. Known for his roles starring in state-funded blockbusters, the Russian actor’s repertoire includes the films Spy, Soulless and Legend No 17. The star of numerous Russian hits has inched into the domain of western cinema, like his latest American teen film Vampire Academy. The new advert is the work of award-winning British director Joe Wright, famous for directing Knightley in films such as Atonement and Anna Karenina.

The advert shows Kozlovsky chasing after Knightley, who plays the role of an elusive femme fatale.
