Who is Zoya Ivanova in Jack Ryan season 3? We discuss the character and their role in the plot of Prime Video’s third season of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.

One of Prime Video’s flagship series, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, has completed its third season. The series has been a solid producer for Prime Video. Even a welcome surprise for John Krasinski fans when he took over the classic Clancy character. He has taken the role of the intellectual government agent into a series that acts as a thinking man’s thriller. Along with a turn by Krasinski that may be his best and an award-worthy work by James Cosmo, many scintillating new and old supporting characters exist. The entire series is so well adapted. This thriller is practically ripped from the paper of great 90s spy thrillers.

One of those characters is Zoya Ivanova. An enigmatic figure who has caught the eye as an alluring, seductive female spy.

Who is Zoya Ivanova in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan season 3?

Jack Ryan is now a new Rome CIA Station case officer. He completes a mission to recover information about a possible Russian nuclear weapon from an asset named Zoya Ivanova. It’s a chip, like an SD card you would find in a cell phone. Jack takes the evidence to his new boss, Elisabeth, who finds it tangential at best. After convincing and backing from James Greer, the intelligence leads them to a Russian freighter.

Jack takes a SOG Team escort, and it turns out it’s a scientist seeking asylum. He has been working on Sokol, a once-defunct Russian project looking to create a nuclear bomb that is impossible to track with military radar. Ryan is now a new Rome CIA Station case officer and hands him a chip of information you usually find inside a cell phone.

After the mission has blown up in Jack’s face — he now has a red notice on his head, and Elizabeth threw him to the wolves, now being labeled a traitor — Ryan has to contact the woman who gave him the information on Sokol.

That is Zoya Ivanova. With the help of Mike November, she is on her way out of town. “You’re not the only one whose cover is blown,” she tells Ryan. Jack’s objective is to find the source of Zoya’s information. That is when we find out it was Luka, the Kremlin lifer. He is trying to prevent a nuclear world war with his beloved Russia and the United States.

Who plays Zoya Ivanova in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan season 3?

The actress who plays Zoya Ivanova is Ana Ularu. A Romanian actress perhaps best known for her roles as West in 2016’s Emerald City and Matilda in the 2010 Romanian action film Outbound. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is easily Ana’s highest-rated material on Rotten Tomatoes, with the third season holding an 83% approval rate with twelve reviews.

Ms. Ularu’s future projects include The Power on Prime Video, the Netflix series Palomino, and the highly anticipated Spy/Master, debuting HBO Max next year.
