In 2017, Gal Gadot made waves when she starred as Wonder Woman, a beloved and iconic female superhero. Interestingly enough, when she first auditioned for the role, she did not know that it was for this character. Prior to this audition, Gadot was almost ready to give up on her acting career, but Warner Brothers called her in for an audition that changed her life. Director Patty Jenkins knew she had found the perfect person for the role the moment she laid eyes on Gadot. Gadot underwent some intense training for the role, gaining 17 pounds of muscle in the process. Even her time in the army didn’t prepare her for the grueling six-month training regimen leading up to filming. She worked out for six hours each day, including two hours of gym work, two hours of fight choreography, and one and a half hours of horse riding. To prepare for the physical demands of the role, Gadot studied various martial arts such as swordsmanship, Kung Fu, kickboxing, capoeira, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Not only did this training make her stronger, but it also improved her posture.
