There may be seven ‘Wonders of the World’, but there’s only one Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot is the third actress to play this DC female bad A** and with such a successful acting and modeling career, IDF military training and a motorcycle license to kill, playing the Amazonian warrior princess should be a cinch. Here are ten fun facts about the Israeli superstar we bet you didn’t know. It may come as a surprise, but after reading these, you’ll be even more impressed.
Ten wonders about the wonder that is Gal Gadot
Wonder Woman was almost a Bond girl
Gadot first auditioned for the part of Camille Monte, a Bond girl from 2008 film Quantum of Solace. The audition was bittersweet: she lost the role to Olga Kurylenko, but gained another after the casting director hired her to play Gisele Yashar in the Fast & Furious film series.
She performs her own stunts
The little daredevil performed her own stunts in Fast & Furious. No matter how determined though (most probably against her will), her Wonder Woman character was assigned a stunt double. As much of a superwoman as she is, when a sword and superhuman strength are thrown in, sometimes a body double is just plain necessary.
