Gal Gadot Reveals Role She Was Almost Cast In
Gal Gadot almost beat Charlize Theron for her Mad Max: Fury Road role
'It was always me and the big name.'
It’s hard to imagineMad Max: Fury Roadwithout Charlize Theron blazing her way through it, however it turns out she only narrowly beat out Wonder Woman for the role. Gal Gadot, who at the time didn’t have many credits to her name, was one of the runner-ups for Imperiosa Furiosa. (It’s still a sore spot for her.)
She spoke honestly onThe Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatterpodcast about how closely she had come to giving up acting, especially after barely missing out on a number of Blockbuster roles.
She said, ‘I had so many almosts for big great things, but I was never a big enough name…It was always me and the big name. I was runner-up forMad Maxwith Charlize…I can’t tell you how many times I heard, ‘Once you do it, it’s going to change your life!’
To be honest, it’s understandable why Gal was passed over for Charlize. Charlize brings this gravitas and harrowing weariness to Furiosa, which took the Oscar-winning film to the next level as she was essentially the emotional heart of it. (Though we don’t doubt our girl Gal would have done a great job too.)
Gal’s been pretty open about the fact that she was thinking of packing it all in and moving home to Israel. She revealed, ‘It just came to a point where I was like, ‘I don’t want to do this to my family. If it’s not going to work, why push it?’
While she had a small recurring role in theFast and the Furious, she struggled to find work in Hollywood before taking up Diana Prince’s golden wrist guards. Since she would actually fly from Israel to Hollywood for her bigger auditions, it became a strain not only for her but also for her husband and daughter.
