In late 2013, American film director Zack Snyder cast Gal Gadot in the role of Wonder Woman for the 2016 film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The “Fast & Furious” actress — who had the role of Gisele Yashar in three installments of the franchise — beat the most-talked-about candidate Jamie Alexander to play the iconic DC superhero.

How old was Gal Gadot in Fast & Furious?

She was introduced in the 2009 film Fast & Furious (alternatively known as Fast & Furious 4).

Her character Gisele Yashar helps Dominic Toretto’s team while forming a romantic relationship with team member Han Lue. Filming began in February 2008 when Gal was 22-years-old.

Gadot, who performed her own stunts in the Fast & Furious films, said in an interview that her army background convinced Taiwanese-American film director Justin Lin to give her the role as Gisele Yashar.

“I think the main reason was that [the director] Justin Lin really liked that I was in the military, and he wanted to use my knowledge of weapons,” she said about the casting process. Gadot served for two years in the Israel Defense Force as a combat trainer.

The movie was released on March 12, 2009. Born on April 30, 1985, in Petah Tikva, Israel, she turned 24 just over a month later on April 30, 2009.

“My service was for two years, but in an ideal world I would love for all the countries to not have an army so we don’t have to fight each other,” she told People magazine in an interview.

“But that’s not the case – we’re still not in an ideal world. There is still a long way to go.”
