Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot is an Israeli actress and model who is best known for her role as Gisele Yashar in "The Fast and the Furious" film series. In 2016, she began playing the role of Diana Prince / Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, starting with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and continuing as the lead in the upcoming 2017 film "Wonder Woman." She had been among the top ten highest-earning fashion models in Israel. 

Ms. Gadot won the 2004 Miss Israel competition and then traveled to Ecuador to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. She then served for two years as an enlisted soldier of the Israel Defense Forces, where she served as a combat instructor.

After leaving the army, she started studying law. After finishing her first year at university, a casting director who saw her card called her to audition for the part of Bond girl Camille Montes in the film "Quantum of Solace." She failed to win the part, which went instead to Olga Kurylenko (who would years later also compete with Gadot in the audition for the part of Wonder Woman). As a result of the audition, the casting director instead hired Ms. Gadot for the role of Gisele in "Fast & Furious."

In 2007, the 21-year-old took a part in the Maxim photo shoot "Women of the Israeli army," and as such she featured on the cover of the New York Post. In April 2012, Shalom Life ranked her Number 5 on its list of "the 50 most talented, intelligent, funny, and gorgeous Jewish women in the world", behind model Bar Refaeli and actress Eva Green. In 2014, Ms. Gadot was one of two Israeli actress along with Odeya Rush listed as an upcoming leading lady by InStyle magazine.
