  • So how did you find out you got this role?

  • I did an audition.

  • I didn't know what I was auditioning for.

  • They didn't tell you it was?

  • They didn't say.

  • They said it was super, super confidential.

  • 'You're just gonna read scene with Zack Snyder', my magnificent director.

  • So, I have and it was great.

  • And then I had to go back to Israel for work.

  • And then they call to say that they want to camera-test me with Ben.

  • I said, "Great."

  • "What am I testing for?"

  • And then they said "Well, honestly, we have no idea but expect a phone call from Zack Snyder."

  • Same night cut to Zack calls me, saying,

  • "Well, I'm not sure if you have it in Israel, but did you ever hear about Wonder Woman?"

  • Then I went dead for like five seconds, came back to life and I tried to pull off my coolest voice saying, "Wonder Woman, yeah".

  • "Yeah I've heard of her." and then the next thing you know, I did the audition with Ben.

  • It went great.

  • Came back home, and I was expecting to get a fairly quick answer.

  • Waited very patiently for two weeks, and I had a very positive feeling about that.

  • And then I had to travel again to the States for another work.

  • And then the moment the airplane landed, I opened my phone, and I saw 30 missed calls from my agents.

  • So, I called them while sitting in the seat still.

  • And then they said "Well, you can't say anything to anyone yet, but you got the part!"

  • And then I went "Aah"!

  • And everyone looked at me.

  • Thank you.

  • And I couldn't say anything.

  • Thank you.

  • And now I feel like I'm the luckiest girl in the world.

  • Not only that, but you're also, now you're filming, you have your own movie.

  • You're filming Wonder Woman.

  • Now you've got your own movie out of this.

  • That's amazing.

  • Yes, yes, yes it's amazing.

  • By the way...

  • I saw your version of this photo.

  • Yeah, I ...

  • And I was very threatened.

  • Yeah, I posted one.

  • Because for me you're wonder woman.

  • Because I was, it was too late.

  • It was too late to campaign.

  • You had already gotten the role, but I had that outfit at home so I thought,

  • "Well, I'll just put it on and see if I can."

  • So you haven't seen this yet and it doesn't look anything like you, but here's your action figure.

  • You have a doll.

  • Oh, my God.

  • Look at that.

  • It doesn't really look like you.

  • It's crazy.

  • You know, I got one, not this one, but my daughter broke the head of it, so we had to get rid of it.

  • How old is your daughter?

  • Give this to her.

  • Thank you, she's four.

  • She's four years old.

  • She's four.

  • She must be, I saw a picture of her in a little...

  • Come on.

  • Lulu.

  • How adorable.

  • Love of my life.

  • I mean, does she know that you're Wonder Woman?

  • Does she understand?

  • She does, she does.

  • She understands.

  • I'm not sure how much of it she gets.

  • So, Alma came to visit me many times on set, and one time, I was wearing the Wonder Woman costume.

  • And then she asked me,

  • "Mommy, if you wear a tiara, does that mean you're a queen, and then I'm a princess?"

  • And then I said, "Well it's, I'm playing dress up."

  • "Alma, this is dress up."

  • And she's really into dress up.

  • She's really into princesses, and one time I was telling her a story and then she said the prince is always so brave and courageous and strong.

  • And then I asked her, and what do you think about the princess?

  • She said, yeah.

  • And I ask her why do you say that?

  • And then she say, they always fall asleep and then the prince the one to wake them up.

  • And they do nothing.

  • And that made me feel so good about the fact ...

  • That you're playing one.

  • I talk and talk and talk.

  • Yeah, and I was so nervous, so you get to...

  • No, no, no.

  • No, I'm sorry, if you want to, if you want to say something.

  • So anyway, made me feel really good about playing Wonder Woman.

  • Yeah.

  • No, it's really important to be able to have that role model.

  • No, it is and boys always had Batman and Superman and Spiderman and etc., etc.

  • And girls has the princesses where-

  • Well, now we have Supergirl on television, and now we have Wonder Woman, and we have to keep putting those role models out.

  • Exactly.

  • For boys to see that, too.

  • Exactly.

  • All right.

  • Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice opens March 25, we will be right back.

  • Thank you so much, Gal.
