“I didn’t want to do the obvious role that you see in Hollywood most of the time, which is the heartbroken girl who’s waiting to be rescued by the guy, blah, blah, blah. I wanted to do something different.”
What’s so lovely about Wonder Woman is yes, she has the strength
and power of a goddess, but she has the heart and mind of a human. So I
play her as I think a woman like me would act in the situations she’s
going through. You treat her as a normal woman who happens to be
fantastic and almighty.
I definitely have a
strong sense of my Jewish and Israeli identity. I did my two-year
military service; I was brought up in a very Jewish, Israeli family
environment, so of course my heritage is very important to me.
