Gal Gadot has revealed details about the film "Cleopatra" - in addition to starring, she is also involved in writing the screenplay and is a producer.
After it was announced that Gadot was getting the role, critics and haters on social media reacted violently because they claimed that an Arab or African actress should play Cleopatra.
Some argue that Kenyan-Mexican actress Lupita Nyongo would be better suited for the role, and writer and TV cameraman James Hall wrote on Twitter that: "Hollywood has always chosen white actresses for the Queen of the Nile. Can't they find an African actress?" ? "
NO!!! Becose Cleopatra is WHITE.
In fact, it is of Macedonian and Greek origin. Journalist Ian Miles Cheong wrote ironically: "People are upset because Gal Gadot, who is not black, plays Cleopatra, who is also not black."
Cleopatra is a descendant of Ptolemy I Soter, a Macedonian-born general in the army of Alexander the Great. She ascends the throne of battles to power between brothers and sisters, which she wins with the help of Julius Caesar, who becomes her lover. Later, however, she has a relationship with Mark Anthony, which is devastating for both.
