Actress Gal Gadot admits that Beyonce helped her get in the right mindset when she was being auditioned for the Lead Role of “Wonder Woman.” According to People Movies, the 31-year-old star is playing a warrior in the forthcoming standalone film.

Director Zack Snyder selected Gadot for the main character of “Wonder Woman” when she was being auditioned for “Batman v Superman.” First, she was asked to do a camera test. The filmmaker was looking at all aspects, including her body language, style of walking and face expressions. Gal Gadot was selected from over eight girls who were asked to stay outside the office for several hours.

Gadot says it was tough for her to wait in a long queue, and she was losing her mind. So, the actress made a call to Beyonce who motivated her to stay there and don’t get depressed. The young lady eventually stood up and began dancing just to lighten her mood.

Gal Gadot in two different roles

This summer, we will see Gadot in two separate roles. In “Batman vs. Superman,” she is playing the wife of a famous businessman who gets frustrated when the husband decides to save people from the criminals. In “Wonder Woman,” Gal is playing a warrior who has supernatural powers as gifted by Greek Gods.

The former beauty pageant first decided to quit on “Wonder Woman,” but later Beyonce motivated her to accept the challenge. She was pregnant with her second child in those days, so it was not easy to continue.
