Winstead plays film star Anna Urbanova, glamorous and at the height of her fame, who appears to have fallen for Count Alexander Rostov (McGregor) who she dazzles with her wit and beauty.

Instant chemistry sizzles between the pair when they meet at the Metropol Hotel, where the Count has been banished to by a Soviet trial.

But Anna's real self is so well hidden by layers of acting techniques and mystery that it is impossible to know whether she has really fallen in love, or is simply playing her latest role.

The series is adapted from the novel of the same name by New York Times bestselling author Amor Towles and follows the story of the Count, who is confined to an attic room in the hotel as an alternative to execution after the Russian revolution.
