Would a Russian/Soviet actor in the 1960s be allowed to pop over to Hollywood to appear in a film or TV series, the same way a Western European actor would?
Most likely not. And what would be the point? It was a different world then and not many Americans would even know who the actor was.

"Look! We got a famous Russian actor to play a Soviet agent!" *crickets*
