MM: Did you have to alter your training to get ready for this film?
GC: Absolutely. They had me getting up at 5 o’clock and then I did three hours of stunts and then three hours of Mossad secret service training with guns and boot camp and getting yelled at, getting stalked and stalking other people. After that I did strength and conditioning. There wasn’t any acting training until probably the week before. I had the script with me and I just had so much anxiety about it. I was like, “I don’t even know what to do with this damn thing.” Finally the week before, they were like, “Alright, let’s try reading some lines with this acting coach.”
MM: What was it like to basically kick the crap out of Channing Tatum, Ewan McGregor and Michael Fassbender [above]?
GC: It was really a beautiful experience, and these guys made it ten times more of a beautiful experience than I could have imagined. Everybody around me on set was like, “It doesn’t usually go like this. It’s a once in a lifetime thing.” I loved every moment of it.
