The stripper character, Yvetta, played by Natasha Alam, who is Uzbek/Russian, is introduced by Eric as being from Estonia. While it is possible that a Russian could be from Estonia, it is unlikely that she would identify as Estonian. Estonia is not in Russia but was in the former Soviet Union so many Russians continue to live there; however, they speak a totally different language and are very different in most ways. Unlike the actress' native Uzbekistan which continues to be dominated by Russian culture and language, Estonia is very much a place where people identify as Estonian and speak that language.
