Following Wonder Woman’s performance, in the forthcoming National Geographic Presents: Influence With Gal Gadot docuseries, Gal Gadot is using her voice and reaching out to share vital stories about women around the world.
“As soon as Wonder Woman was out, I began to understand the influence I had on young people in 2017,” Gadot announced during the network’s panel on the virtual winter press tour of the Television Critics Association. As a consequence, “You start thinking about, ‘OK, so I really need to be accountable and truthful.'”
She said, “I felt like I had such a great reach for people and just wanted to do something good… I wanted to use my reach and platforms to reach as many people as possible and shed light on these amazing, incredible stories of women.”
That led her to create a new six-part, short-form executive series that follows courageous young people from global societies marred by crime, hunger, trauma, sexism, injustice and natural disasters as they conquer numerous challenges and do remarkable things. Every episode is directed by Vanessa Roth, the Academy Award-winning filmmaker.
Though the series focuses on a few different stories, from Detroit to Brazil, Gadot said, “There are endless stories to tell.
” It was only a matter of choosing the most “extraordinary” stories to feature here. All these women are so unbelievable, because they’re the true champions, no matter what.
“She said, “I keep calling them my ladies of wonder because they are the real heroes.
The actress added that I fight, but to make belief, while “I go to set and I get dressed and I get my costume and sword and all.” Really, they are out on the field, sweating and doing whatever they can to make the world a better place.
