Super Star - Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot was born and grew up in Rosh HaAyin, Israel. She has stated that she was brought up in a "very Jewish, Israeli family environment". At the age of 19, she attended and won the 2004 Miss Israel competition. After winning, she travelled to Ecuador to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. She did not place in the top 15 and returned to Israel to work as a model. She eventually made the move to Hollywood and became an actress. Gadot married her boyfriend, Israeli businessman Yaron Versano, during the filming of Fast & Furious, on September 28, 2008. At the beginning of November 2011, Gadot and Versano welcomed their first baby girl, Alma.


Gal Gadot appeared in Fast & Furious alongside co-stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, having beaten six other actresses for the role. In 2010, Gadot had a small role in the action-adventure Knight and Day, which starred Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Earlier in the same year, she had a small role in the movie Date Night as Natanya, Holbrooke's (Mark Wahlberg) Israeli girlfriend. April 2011 brought her back to the The Fast & the Furious franchise, reprising her character in Fast Five. In May 2013, Gadot again played Gisele, in Fast & Furious 6. Her character appears to have died in this film, so it is unclear whether she will return in later sequels.
