Vin Diesel and Helen Mirren are getting serious in a new photo from the upcoming Fast 8.

In the photo, posted on Diesel’s Instagram, the pair are in the middle of a whispered conversation. Mirren previously told EW she was nervous about joining the cast, but she seems like she’s doing great: Diesel wrote in the caption of the photo that she was “a joy and an honor” to work with. We don’t know much about her role in the film, but from what she has told EW, it seems like a small one, and sadly, we won’t get to see her drive.

“I wanted to be driving, but unfortunately, I’m not,” she said. “Maybe that will come in the future, in Fast and Furious 12. … I’m probably one of the few people on the set who know how to drive a gearshift car. I doubt the Rock knows. … But I do. I know how to double declutch.”
