Gal Gadot

Actress

Gal Gadot is a major film star who will appear as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). Her co-stars include Amy Adams and Ben Affleck. The Israeli actress and model, who also won the Miss Israel title in 2004, has expressed that she does not feel like an ambassador for Israel; her actions, however, prove otherwise. “I definitely have a strong sense of my Jewish and Israeli identity,” she has said. “I did my two-year military service, I was brought up in a very Jewish, Israeli family environment, so of course my heritage is very important to me. I want people to have a good impression of Israel. … I do talk about Israel a lot.”
