I hope someone can help me, cos this is one of the things that will drive me nuts!!!

I was watching Farscape yesterday (which is back on for us aussies- Channel 9, Sat, 5pm) and thought I'd check up on Virginia Hey (the blue chick) in IMDb. Anyways, i wanted to know what she looked like minus the blue paint, and there was no pic, but it says she was in THe Living Daylights. Apparantly she was someone called Rubavitch. Who the hell was that?? Since i don't know what V.H looks like normally, and since i've seen The Living Daylights millions of times, i'm desperate to find out who she was before i start losing sleep over it. Rubavitch must of been pretty important, because VH name was listed about 10th in the credits. WHAT PART OF THE MOVIE WAS SHE IN???!?!

Anyone help me before I start ripping my hair out???

Rubavitch is the girlfriend of General Leonid Pushkin. She is in the scene where Bond breaks into her hotel room to kill Pushkin.
She looks very good but I don't know if she is so important for the plot.

I hope you didn't start ripping your hair out!!

The other question is whether "Rubavitch" (Virginia Hey) is supposed to be the same character as "Rubelvitch/Rublevitch", General Gogol's secretary :) mistress, who was played by Eva Reuber-Staier.

And, since the ending "-avitch" is masculine and means "son of" in Russian, maybe they should have cast Tula for the part.

Is Rubavitch the chick who has her top torn off by Bond?
