Upcoming: Recently, there has been news circulating that an actress will be portraying the late Hedy Lamarr in a limited series on Showtime that will chronicle her life and career as a prominent figure in classic Hollywood. Lamarr was active in the film industry from the 1930s until the 1950s, and some of her most memorable roles include Samson and Delilah (1949), Come Live With Me (1941), and The Strange Woman (1946). In addition to her acting achievements, Lamarr also made notable contributions as an inventor, including a device that helped the Allied Powers in World War II by disrupting radio-controlled torpedoes. A documentary about her life, produced by Susan Sarandon and titled Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, aired on PBS in 2017. Lamarr herself once remarked, “People have the idea that I’m sort of a stupid thing. I was different, I guess. Maybe I came from a different planet, who knows? But whatever it is, inventions are easy for me to do.” She passed away at the age of 86 on January 19, 2000.
Hedy Lamarr was a classic beauty as seen in a still from the 1949 film Samson and Delilah. The upcoming show, which features Gal Gadot, has a talented team behind the scenes including showrunner Sarah Treem, executive producers Jaron Varsano (Gadot’s husband), and Warren Littlefield, a veteran of the entertainment industry who worked on series such as Fargo and The Handmaid’s Tale. Gadot, originally from Petah Tikva, Israel, has become a rising star after her portrayal of Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and her successful solo movie Wonder Woman, which earned $820 million worldwide. She will also star in the highly-anticipated sequel, Wonder Woman 1984, set to release next year. Gadot is a mother of two daughters, Alma and Maya, with Varsano.
