How Gal Gadot Prepared for Her ‘Snow White’ Audition: A Month of Singing Practice to Impress Casting Directors

Gal Gadot revealed that she practiced the song from “Snow White” for a whole month before her audition for the upcoming Disney film where she plays the role of the Evil Queen. The actress mentioned that it was the first time in a while that she had to audition for a project and that the filmmakers required her to showcase her singing skills.

Before securing her role as the Evil Queen in Disney’s live-action version of Snow White, Gal Gadot had to demonstrate her singing skills. The Heart of Stone star, who is 38 years old, stars alongside West Side Story actress Rachel Zegler in the lead role. In a video for GQ recorded before the actor’s strike, Gadot revealed that she spent a month rehearsing one song from the musical to prepare for her audition.

She shared that it had been a while since she had to audition for a project, but for this musical film, they needed to ensure that she could sing. Thus, she spent a month working on the song before auditioning, and fortunately, she landed the part after filming the song. Gadot expressed her excitement about the film, saying that it was an enjoyable experience to shoot and different from anything she had ever done. Moreover, it allowed her to go big and theatrical, and she cannot wait for the audience to watch the movie. In addition, Gadot revealed how she and her husband set their egos aside while working on “Heart of Stone.”

In an interview with Vogue Hong Kong, Gadot revealed that she modified her voice to suit her character, the Evil Queen. The actress found the role delightful because it was a Disney villain in a musical, which allowed her to stretch her performance and make it more dramatic and animated. To enhance her portrayal, she changed her voice and experimented with various techniques. Gadot expressed her excitement to see the final product and how her performance would turn out.

The upcoming movie, “Snow White,” will be helmed by director Marc Webb, known for his work on “500 Days of Summer” and “The Amazing Spider-Man.” The film’s screenplay will be co-written by Erin Cressida Wilson, who worked on “The Girl on the Train,” and Greta Gerwig, who is currently making waves with her successful “Barbie” movie. Interestingly, Gal Gadot, who was once considered as the top choice for the lead role in “Barbie,” was praised by producer and star Margot Robbie for being not only stunningly beautiful but also genuinely kind and enthusiastic.

Gal Gadot, who played Wonder Woman, expressed her admiration for Margot Robbie, who praised her in an interview with Flaunt magazine. Gadot described Robbie as a warm, funny, smart woman, and someone she would love to be friends with. She was touched by Robbie’s comments about her and is excited for her upcoming project, Barbie. Gadot said she would love to work with Robbie on anything in the future.
