These actress came to the convention to discuss their characters. The panel also talked about women in media, future roles for women in the genre, and their inspirations for their characters.

At the convention, Gadot was welcomed by rousing applause. The stunning Israeli actress talked about the first time she put on her Wonder Woman suit: “We got into another room and I saw the costume for the first time. And we had a fitting, and it was an out-of-body experience — there I was, little Gal from Israel becoming Wonder Woman.”
“I think it really represents the Wonder Woman of today, I’m very grateful to be the one who is going to bring her to life,” Gadot, 30, says.
A fellow Israeli spoke Hebrew to Gadot and asked her to share her experience and success in Hollywood coming from “our very small country.”
Gadot replied, “All the clichés are right. I really believe now that it doesn’t matter where you come from… if you’re persistent and if you’re good, if you’re trying your best and being proactive.”
