Her duality is unmatched 

Before Gal Gadot entered the world of film and television, she took up law at what is now known as Reichman University, Israel’s only private college. Prior to that, Gadot served her country as a combat trainer for the Israeli Defense Forces organising programs for those in the army— but not after being crowned Miss Israel in 2004.

She stars in her co-produced film Heart of Stone

Netflix’s Heart of Stone has Gal Gadot written all over it. A story of an international intelligence agent tasked with the dangerous mission of protecting her peacekeeping organisation’s most valuable asset, the film is action-packed, empowering, and female driven. And it comes as no surprise. Not only does Gadot star as leading lady Rachel Stone, together with her husband, she’s also among the film’s list of producers.

She founded a production company with her husband

On a mission of her own to develop meaningful stories that resonate with her as an actress, Gal Gadot teamed up with her husband Jaron Varsano to form Pilot Wave Motion Pictures in late 2019. Apart from the upcoming Heart of Stone, the company has produced National Geographic’s short-form documentary series Impact with Gal Gadot, and in partnership with Warner Bros. is currently working on the historical thriller, Irena Sendler.

She’s a huge foodie at heart

In an exclusive interview with Vogue Hong Kong, the actress reveals some of her favourite comfort foods. “So if we’re talking about Israel, I love bourekas, it’s like a pastry with a crispy dough and cheese in it.” Pita bread with falafel, salad and tahini, and a classic American cheeseburger with fries are also close contenders. But if there’s one food not to doubt her love for, its a good ol’ mac and cheese. She is after all, the founding partner of Goodles, a mac  and cheese company that brings nutritional value into the mix. pilot 

She once made the TIME 100 Most Influential List

In 2018, TIME named Gal Gadot one of the most influential people of the year for her inspiring performance as Wonder Woman. American actress Lynda Carter of the 1970s Wonder Woman television series wrote for the magazine saying, “Her portrayal was magnificent and powerful, capturing everything that Wonder Woman represents.”
