Michelle Trachtenberg: 'I'd love to meet Lee Harvey Oswald's wife'

Actress Michelle Trachtenberg is keen to meet the widow of the man accused of assassinating John F. Kennedy after portraying her in new TV movie Killing Kennedy. Marina Oswald has always made it clear she does not want to be associated with what her husband allegedly did way back in 1963, and so the actress refused to try and track her down as she researched her latest role. But she admits she would love to meet up with the Russian, who is now in her 70s. She tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, "Of the main players in the movie, she's the only one who's still alive... When I started to do my research, there was a minimal amount of information about her; I found an out-of-print biography, called Marina and Lee, which is a huge, thick book that I brought to set... but she didn't really exist to me. "I found a YouTube video of her on the 30th anniversary (of the assassination) saying, 'My husband was innocent', so I didn't want to disrespect her in any way... but if she would ever like to meet me it would have to be on her terms."
