The actress also revealed that she first heard the news that she had gotten the part when she arrived in New York and that she was sworn to secrecy. She said, "I was just on my way to shooting at LA. I landed at NY in a connection flight when my agent, Hadass Lichtenstein, called me. She says to me 'Wonder Woman!' and I'm like 'What??' - 'The role is yours!...and it's a secret and the news are not yet announced and you can't tell anyone...'. I'm saying to her 'Are you serious??'- and we both scream! Now it's a plane from Israel to NY and I can't make loud noise, and so I lean on a window, bending down to my legs, and just try to understand."
She continued, "Long story short - I was totally alone in NY, I got to a hotel at 12 pm, I needed to wake up in the morning for shootings. I remember laying in the darkness by myself, staring at the ceiling, and I was telling myself 'It's not real!'...it shouldn't be like that, I'm supposed to be like... 'where's the champagne?'"
Gadot was recently seen in the "Fast and Furious 6" as well as "Fast Five."
