Heart of Stone: We Speak to Tom Harper and Matthias Schweighöfer

Dept. of Chats and Confabs


Ready for your next action adventure? Heart of Stone features Gal Gadot as Rachel Stone, a covert intelligence operative and the only woman who stands between her powerful, global, peacekeeping organization and the loss of its most valuable — and dangerous — asset. In this Goggler Exclusive, we sat down with Heart of Stone director Tom Harper as well as one of its stars, Matthias Schweighöfer, to talk about making an action movie, doing action sequences for real, and acting versus directing.

Rachel Stone appears to be an inexperienced tech, on an elite MI6 unit headed up by lead agent Parker. What her MI6 team doesn’t know is that Stone actually works for the Charter — a covert peacekeeping organization, secret even from other spies, which uses cutting-edge technology to neutralize global threats. Rachel has been trained to be the consummate professional: a phenomenal field agent who sticks to the mission, follows the numbers, and trusts no one. When a routine mission is derailed by mysterious hacker Keya Dhawan, Rachel’s two lives collide. As she races to protect the Charter and strives to beat the odds, her humanity might just be her biggest asset.

Heart of Stone is directed by Tom Harper, from a story by Greg Rucka and stars Gal Gadot, Jamie Dornan, Alia Bhatt, Sophie Okonedo, Matthias Schweighöfer, Paul Ready, Jing Lusi, Archie Madekwe, Enzo Cilenti, and Jon Kortajarena.

Heart of Stone premieres on Netflix on August 11.
