The writers have done a really good job."[13] Producer Steven Zanoski was surprised that a high calibre actor such as Elliott auditioned but was impressed by her convincing Romanian accent and the way she picked up on the character's funny nuances.[13] He stated; "It was interesting to watch her transform herself from this very affable and collegial actor into this crazy Eastern European woman."[13] The character was set to be on screen for 4 months and cause a stir upon arrival.[13] Zlata made her last appearance in December, with Elliott highly enjoying the role after initially struggling with the heavy and quick work load.[15] In 2013, Elliott reprised the role for a guest stint that lasted a month.[16][17]
