Childhood and Family:

Gal Gadot was born on  April 30, 1985, in Rosh Ha'ayin, Israel. She was raised in a Jewish family.

On September 28, 2008, Gal married her boyfriend, Israeli businessman Yaron Versano. The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Alma, in November 2011.  

Miss Israel 2004


Gal Gadot entered the Miss Israel beauty contest when she was 19 years old. She ended up taking home the title of Miss Israel 2004 and went on to compete at the 2004 Miss Universe pageant. She failed to achieve the top 15 and returned to Israel to work as a model.

In 2007, Gadot joined other Israeli models for the Maxim photo shoot “Women of the Israeli army,” which focused on the models who served in the Israel Defense Forces. After her photograph was included in the invitation to the launch party, she appeared on the cover of the New York Post. It was not long before she emerged as one of the leading models in her native country. Beginning in 2008, the 175 cm tall beauty became a model for Castro, one of the largest Israeli clothing brands.   

Gadot made her acting debut in 2007 in an Israeli TV series called “Bubot,” where she played a character named Miriam 'Merry' Elkayam. Two years later, Gadot's acting career got much boost when she landed the role of Gisele in the Hollywood movie “Fast & Furious” (2009), opposite Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. Directed by Justin Lin and written by Chris Morgan, the fourth installment in “The Fast and the Furious” film series was a commercial success despite receiving mixed to negative reviews from critics. The same year, she made a guest appearance in the HBO hit comedy/drama series “Entourage” and played Olivia in three episodes of The CW's “The Beautiful Life: TBL,” which starred Mischa Barton and Sara Paxton.

In 2010, Gadot landed a small role in “Knight and Day,” an action/adventure film starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. There, she portrayed Naomi, a henchwoman to the enemy of Tom Cruise. Additionally, she played Natasha, Holbrooke (played by Mark Wahlberg)'s Israeli girlfriend, in the action/comedy film “Date Night” (2010), which starred Steve Carell and Tina Fey and was helmed by Shawn Levy, before reprising her role as Gisele Harabo in the 2011 sequel “Fast Five.” The latter film enjoyed financial success and was praised by critics.         

In 2011, Gadot returned to the Israeli television when she joined the cast of the drama series “Asfur” during its second season. She played Kika, an Israeli coffee shop owner in Amsterdam, who hooks Yitzhak “Itzik” Bensuli (played by Oz Zehavi) up with a string of illegal drug smuggling jobs.

Recently, Gadot again portrayed Gisele in “Fast & Furious 6,” which was released internationally on May 24, 2013 following a UK premiere on May 17, 2013.
