Did you know? Gal Gadot never would have been Wonder Woman if she wasn’t pressured into trying out to be a Bond girl

You may recognize actress Gal Gadot now for her roles in “Wonder Woman” and the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, but before she was in either of those movies, the actress wasn’t planning on acting. 

The Israeli-born actress grew up dancing and dreamed of one day being a choreographer. It was a chance meeting that cajoled her to the silver screen.

Gadot told W magazine in May the audition was for 2008’s “Quantum of Solace,” a few years after she was crowned Miss Israel in 2004. At the time, Gadot wasn’t comfortable with her English.

While she didn’t wind up with the Bond girl role, Gadot told her agent if an acting role came up in the future, she’d be interested in auditioning for it. From there, she landed a role on an Israeli TV show, “Bubot.”

Her role in the “Fast and Furious” franchise caught the attention of Warner Bros. and director Zack Snyder who personally called Gadot to audition for the then-secret role of Wonder Woman

There’s something everyone can take from Gadot’s story. Don’t pass up on any opportunity, no matter how small because you never know how those connections may help you years later.
