Nessa SteinPlayed by Maggie Gyllenhaal
Witnessing her father's assassination as a small child has left an indelible mark on Nessa Stein. An Anglo-Israeli businesswoman who now heads up the Stein Company and all its philanthropic output, she took her father's former arms company and has inverted its purpose – providing high-speed data cabling across the Middle East in an effort to remove barriers, increase learning and knowledge, and table peace in an area that has only ever known conflict. Recently ennobled in the House of Lords, Baroness Stein is as fearless as she is compassionate; as wise as she is determined; and works tirelessly to promote her company's work. However, she also harbors a dark secret that threatens to blow apart her world and all that she has fought for, as she is forced to confront the demons from her past amidst a high-profile game of political cat and mouse, played out on the world's stage.
