Gal Gadot’s Mad Max Audition
It turns out that Gal Gadot was considered to give life to none other than ‘Imperator Furiosa‘, yes, this character full of a lot of courage and, above all, bravery.
Although in Mad Max: Fury Road we see the actress Charlize Theron with the role of ‘Imperator Furiosa’, they say that choosing this character was not easy because like Gal Gadot, there were other celebrities who wanted to wear these shoes.
Among them stood out Jessica Chastain, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ruth Negga and even Rihanna. However, it was Gal Gadot who drew all the attention in the test that he performed, they even said that “gave an amazing audition”.
