A 'Fast and Furious' rise to fame

While Gadot's first start in film was the 2008 Israeli drama "Budot," it was her role as Gisele in the "Fast and Furious" franchise that turned her into an international star.

Over three films, the actress saw her role transition from a minor character to a supporting one, with fans crushed after her unfortunate exit in 2013's "Fast and Furious 6."

In an interview, Gadot said the cast of the film became like a second family to her. "We all have such a great chemistry, it really shows on screen, and also it is very rare to see such a big cast in one movie, and everyone who goes to see this movie can relate to at least one of the characters."
