Saoirse Ronan was originally cast in the role of Kitty but turned it down due to scheduling conflicts. Filming for the movie started in September 2011 and wrapped up in March 2012.

Instead of the supporting role in Anna Karenina, Saoirse opted to star in Byzantium and The Host.

“It was 40 below, we didn’t have hot water for five days and slept in a cabin, on a bench,” Vikander told The Guardian about filming in the countryside outside of St. Petersburg, Russia.

“On our call sheets it actually said: ‘Beware of wolves. They are known to attack lone humans.’ We saw a wolf one time, and a bear, but there were some very tough Russian security guys who came along.”
