Gal Gadot is set to star in and produce a movie about the iconic figure of Cleopatra, but this decision has been met with criticism due to Gadot’s ethnicity. The Israeli actress, who has previously served in her country’s military, is portraying the queen of Egypt despite being white. Historically, Cleopatra was of Greek origin, but this has not stopped accusations of whitewashing from being directed towards the casting of white actresses in the role. In response to these criticisms, Gadot recently stated during an interview with BBC Arabic that Cleopatra was actually Macedonian if one were to be faithful to the historical facts.
Gal’s rise to fame has not been without controversy. Her casting as Cleopatra is just the latest in a string of controversial roles she has played. Previously, her portrayal of Wonder Woman caused political backlash due to her past service in the Israel Defense Forces. Despite these controversies, Gal continues to be a rising star in Hollywood.

Unfortunately, they were unable to find one, and she expressed her strong admiration for the historic icon. She further stated that she wants to celebrate Cleopatra’s legacy and invited other filmmakers to come up with their own versions of the story as she plans to create her own movie too.
