The comic actress is credited in Season 2 of Netflix’s “Russian Doll,” and series co-creator and star Natasha Lyonne

clarified to Entertainment Weekly that while O’Donnell doesn’t appear onscreen,

her voice frames the pivotal setting for the time-traveling drama.
“She’s the subway announcer.

She’s the, ‘Next stop, this is Astor Place. Next stop, 14th street,'” Lyonne said.

The second season of the critically acclaimed hit takes place in the New York City subway system,

which Lyonne’s character Nadia uses to jump from decade to decade.

Lyonne added that it was necessary for the “Russian Doll” subway conductor to sound as authentic as possible.

“I just texted her, because we knew we wanted a real New York accent.

We were sort of running down the line, we’re like, ‘Rosie Perez, Rosie…Mike Rappaport.
