"Diane Kruger on being a spy: ”Would never manage the job '"
"BERLIN. Spionvärlden get a new face in ”The operative”."
"Martin Freeman sends Diane Kruger on the dangerous mission in Iran as an agent for the israeli Mossad."
"- the Film feels realistic about spies, " says Diane Kreuger. My character is not Jason Bourne or James Bond."
"' The operative” is similar to any of John Le Carrés novels or the French tv-series ”False identity”. Diane Kruger plays Rachel who enlisted. She is sent to Tehran, where she works as a teacher of English and French."
' I'd never manage the job. Stay in a country for several years, and to establish a dubbeliv. Fall in love and hide who you are, " says Diane Kruger."
"the Film is mostly shot in Israel and Germany, but some scenes are taken in the Bulgarian Sofia and Tehran in secret. Diane Kruger says that she got the training of the secret service, the Mossad."
"”Awful to trick people”"
"- Not with weapons, but I had to practice to stop strangers on the street and ask them for help. And to crack on in a house and persuade them to let me in under any false excuse. I think it would be a terrible thing to deceive people. All of the anxiety it would create."
"Her character ends up in several dangerous situations. Diane Kruger was pregnant during filming and her daughter was born in november of 2018."
"In the film, she takes risks which cause problems for both her and her boss, played by Martin Freeman. The british actor has done everything from ”the Hobbit” and ”the Black panther” to ”Sherlock”, ”The office” and ”Love actually”."
"I think it's funny that people associate me with action," says Martin Freeman. In this film I would mostly sit on a chair. And drink coffee. I am good at."
"He can see the similarities between spies and actors."
"- In both cases it is to note, to observe how you and other people behave, " says Martin Freeman. And to be a good listener."
