Gal Gadot is one of the leading stars of the modern action movie: together with Charlize Theron, Ana de Armas, and a few years ago, Angelina Jolie competes for the scepter of the best action heroine. After the saga of fast and furious and her Wonder Woman actress is ready to jump into a new franchise With Heart of stone, Netflix movies available to stream from August 11, in which she plays secret agent Rachel Stone.
True female version Mission impossible (executive producers are the same as Mission Impossible – Paying for Death), Movie with Tom Harper everything is put on the line by the stage presence of Gal Gadot, who on occasion not only runs and fights, but also swims, drives motorcycles, shoots, takes off in a wingsuit!
We interviewed the actress in June, ahead of the SAG-AFTRA strike, and she really wanted to make one thing clear: this character has no superpowers: “ We definitely used a different style and approach. For the action scenes, it was extremely important for me to make it clear that Rachel Stone is not a superhero: she is a tough agent, but she is human. We wanted the action to be realistic, sharp, chaotic. We stayed away from style amazing woman“.

Who is Rachel Stone
There texture Heart of stone focuses on the mission of agent Rachel Stone, actually Gal Gadot. His job is to keep the world in balance when governments are about to fall. Really a walk! To avoid a crisis, he must prevent a hacker from getting his hands on a device called a “heart” with which he could control any computer system.
Deeply idealistic, Stone must figure out who to trust and especially who to work with. A line from the film reads: “I want to surround myself with people who want to change the world.” Does the actress also believe in this? Affirmative: “Certainly. I’m a big believer in chain reaction: I think if you do something good for someone, they’ll do it for someone else. The world is improving. It is important to surround yourself with people of the heart, with good intentions: this is how only good comes“.
Gal Gadot: “Chris Pine? He was scared of me on the set of Wonder Woman
In the film, Rachel teams up with her female colleagues to deal with a common threat. How important is teamwork, especially among women? Much for Gal Gadot: “I think it’s super important. If we have the chance to lift someone up so we can celebrate who we are together, it gives me a personal sense of power. The more women in key positions – in our industry, they are screenwriters, directors, agents – the better for everyone.“.
I also agree with colleague Alia Bhatt, a Bollywood star who Heart of stone plays Keya Dhawan:”It is trite to say that if you put two or three women in a room, they can only gossip or fight over their husbands: it is so superficial and pointless. Things have changed in recent years: seeing women fight for what they believe in and, above all, support each other is the very essence of how we are made. This is how we should be presented“.
