INTERVIEW: The Cast of ‘Stonehouse’ Talk Mystery, Men, and the Past

Matthew Macfadyen and Emer Heatley in Stonehouse

Stonehouse shows us one simple facts: White men really could get away with anything. A show bringing to life John Stonehouse (played by Matthew Macfadyen) and his many lives and lies. The former Postmaster General of the United Kingdom, Stonehouse slowly finds himself in so much trouble that he just keeps trying to lie his way out of things. And it results in him taking drastic measures to try and make sure he gets to stay a free man.

In talking with the cast, getting to be a part of this series that explores masculinity and the desire to lie in order to survive is a fascinating one to dive into. I started off my interview with star Matthew Macfadyen (yes, I spoke to Mr. Darcy) and Kevin McNally by talking about how the series really highlights man’s folly and how Stonehouse’s problems all boil down to his inability to just tell the truth. And so I asked what inspired Macfadyen to be a part of the project.
