Anna Chapman smiles as she takes part in a congress of a pro-Kremlin youth group Molodaya Gvardiya (The Young Guard) in Moscow.

Russian spy Anna Chapman has revealed her secrets in her first TV interview: She has a passion for shooting and wants a lion as a pet.

The red-haired 28-year old became a tabloid star as one of ten Russian sleeper agents exposed in the United States and deported this summer in the biggest spy swap since the Cold War.

In Russia, she is the celebrity face of a Moscow bank and joined the leadership of the youth wing of the main pro-Kremlin party.

Chapman says she considers the failure of her mission a chance for new opportunities.

She said on a talk show late Thursday her dream was to have a lion cub, and one was immediately brought out to her on a leash.

She says that Sean Connery is her favorite James Bond and that she admires Angelina Jolie.
