Love of her life: Gal told Ellen that as a parent of a four-year-old daughter, called Alma, she's happy to be playing a strong-female role model

Gal told Ellen that being a parent to her four-year-old daughter, Alma, brings her immense joy as she gets to inspire her as a strong female role model.

Gal mentioned to Ellen that being a parent to her four-year-old daughter Alma brings her joy as she serves as a positive female role model. When asked about Alma’s understanding of her character, Gal shared that she is uncertain about the extent of it, recalling a moment when Alma visited her on set and mistook her Wonder Woman costume for that of a queen, thinking she herself must be a princess.

She reflected on a conversation with Alma where her daughter praised the bravery of princes in stories but had a dismissive view of princesses, noting they often needed rescuing by princes. Gal found this perspective heartening as it reinforced her portrayal of Wonder Woman as a strong and capable character.

Gal, whose last name is pronounced as ‘Gah-dote’, is set to star in her own Wonder Woman film scheduled for release on June 23, 2017. Prior to that, audiences will see her in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice alongside Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, hitting theaters on March 25 this year.
