Gal Gadot on how Wonder Woman inspired Netflix's Heart of Stone.
Gadot plays intelligence operative Rachel Stone, who must assist her organization in recovering its most valuable and hazardous asset, known only as The Heart, before it falls into the wrong hands.
Gadot also produced Heart of Stone, and in an interview with Digital Spy before the SAG-AFTRA strike began, she highlighted the connection between her new film and Wonder Woman.

"It's much more grounded, rawer, grittier, and just more real." And the tone is absolutely new, unusual, and of our day. And that was something I was very interested in."
