Gal Gadot Recalls Being Looked At To Play A Bond Girl Before She Landed Her Breakthrough Fast And Furious Role

Auditioning to become a part of the James Bond universe is an experience that can lead to some of the best, or at least most interesting, stories. Believe it or not, Gal Gadot has a story of her own, as she recently recalled being looked at to play a Bond woman before she landed her breakthrough role in 2009’s Fast & Furious. Which may not have happened, were she to have landed the 007 role she was being considered for.

Before nabbing the part of Gisele Yashar in the fourth Fast Saga installment, Gadot’s acting career had the opportunity to start a bit differently. Reflecting on the experience for an In Style interview, the Wonder Woman star recalled her initial meeting for a role in 2008’s Quantum of Solace, and how the failure to land the gig led to her eventual entry into Vin Diesel’s ever growing criminal family. Here now is the origin story of Gal Gadot’s acting career: 

After my service in the military and modeling, I started university and studied law. There was a casting director there looking for the new Bond girl, and she had seen my card at my modeling agency. I was like, ‘Listen, I’m not an actress. I’m here because my agent told me you really wanted to see me, but I don’t want to waste your time.’ I didn’t get the part, but I started working with acting coaches and auditioning in Israel. I got my first role for a TV show, and that same casting director remembered me and hired me for Fast & Furious. Then I started my affair with acting.
