Twitter Users Rejects Gal Gadot In Egyptian Queen Cleopatra Role

Twitter users have reacted in dismay at the casting of Israeli actress Gal Gadot as Cleopatra, the queen of the Nile in upcoming film.

 

The film, to be released by Paramount Pictures, will be directed by Patty Jenkins, who was also behind the 2017 film Wonder Woman and the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984. Gal Gadot took to her Twitter page to make the big announcement recently.

Fans’ reactions were mostly skeptical, with many accusing Hollywood of whitewashing. Some wondered whether Cleopatra should be played by an actress of colour. Cleopatra was a descendant of Ptolemy I, a Macedonian Greek who established himself as king of Egypt after the death of his companion Alexander the Great.

Gal Gadot is not the first white woman to play Cleopatra. Claudette Colbert, Vivien Leigh and Elizabeth Taylor have all portrayed the historical figure in the past.
