Didn’t get a chance to listen to Gal Gadot’s 20-minute long panel at the Rhode Island Comic Con? The Wonder Woman actor talked about everything from her costume to meeting the star of the TV series Wonder Woman from 1975 to 1979. You can watch the panel below, or skip ahead to our breakdown of what she talked about.
The Wonder Woman Costume
Ever wonder what the Wonder Woman costume feels like? The very first time Gal Gadot tried on the costume was only three days after she was cast. The 31-year old Israeli actress told us that is was ““Tight. Very, very, very, very tight.” However, they “adjusted it” and “it’s [now] much more comfortable.” She also told us that she “love(s) the costume.” Why so? “I think, it complements Wonder Woman very much so, as being the greatest warrior out there.”
Meeting Lynda Carter
In case you didn’t know, Lynda Carter is an American actress who was the star of the TV series Wonder Woman from 1975 to 1979. And Gal Gadot couldn’t get over meeting the actress who starred the Amazon Princess on the small screen.
The two actresses met at the United Nations when they both took part in the ceremony which crowned Wonder Woman as the UN Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls. The experience was apparently so breathtaking that her “English got completely broken,” Gal Gadot joked. She said ” I couldn’t keep my coolness…I was like, ‘Lynda, oh my God, I’m so happy to see you, to meet you, finally’.”
