After the Miss Universe beauty pageant, Gal Gadot began acting.
Though Gadot is a world-famous actress now, she had no intention of becoming one earlier in her life. Originally, she wanted to be a lawyer, but after her appearance in the Miss Universe pageant, she was spotted by casting directors.
“I wasn’t an actress then,” said Gadot. “This casting director flew from England to Israel and she was looking for the [James] Bond girl. When my agent told me about it, I thought, ‘No way am I auditioning, I’m studying law and international relations and I’m way too smart and serious to be an actress.'”
While she had little interest at first in acting, she realized how much fun it could be after a few auditions.
“I had a callback and another callback and another callback, and during that process I realized, ‘Damn, acting is so much more fun than law school.'”
Obviously, when she appeared in Marvel’s Wonder Woman in 1984, Gadot made the right decision for her career.
