Earlier this week, actress Gal Gadot signed on to be the spokesmodel for Bamboo, a perfume made by Gucci Fragrance. It was the latest news in what has been a busy year for Gadot. Comic fans were abuzz when she was cast as Wonder Woman in "Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice," scheduled for a 2016 release. She has agreed to appear in the role for multiple films.

On April 3, the much-anticipated "Fast and Furious" installment "Furious 7" hits theaters. Gadot reprises her role as Gisele — though how she'll appear is a bit of a mystery considering what happened to her character (sorry, no spoilers) at the end of "Fast and Furious 6."

We'll be seeing a lot of the Israeli starlet over the next few years, so here are a few facts to help us get to know her better:

She did all her own stunts in "Fast & Furious 6"

Gadot didn't get a ton of action in the fourth and fifth "Furious" movies, but director Jason Lin made sure to give her character, Gisele, plenty of screen time in the sixth installment, as she explains in the interview above. And because she loves motorcycles and likes being "one of the guys," doing the stunts herself was something she relished.

Her name means "Waves on the shore"

In Hebrew, "Gal" means "wave" and "Gadot" means "shore" or "bank of a river." Not a bad way to go in life, right?

Her next film puts her in the presence of Oscar and Emmy winners

The next film Gadot will appear in is "Triple 9," set to be released on September 11. She'll be in heady company in this one, appearing with "Breaking Bad" Emmy winner Aaron Paul, "Walking Dead" zombie-slayer Norman Reedus and Oscar winner Kate Winslet. If her Twitter feed is any indication, she was excited to be on the project.
