A New York City woman is facing charges that she sent threatening emails and videos to a website dedicated to the French actress Marion Cotillard.

FBI agents say in a court filing that Teresa Yuan sent a series of messages in July that included ramblings about wanting to play Russian Roulette with the actress.

In another video she says she would feel no regret "after it happens" because "that's apparently how it feels to be a killer".

On one recording, she apparently hisses and growls at the camera.

Yuan faces a charge of interstate stalking. Her lawyer, Michael Schneider, told The New York Daily News he would not comment on the case.

Marion won an Oscar for her role as Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, and appeared last year in the hit movie Inception.
