It has been revealed in the magazine “Israel Hayom” that famous Israeli actress Gal Gadot will be making an appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in a pre-recorded taxi sketch.
It is reported that the sketch will show Gal, famous for playing Wonder Woman arriving in Tel Aviv and being taken around in a taxi by Yuval Semo. Although not as well known internationally as Gal, Yuval is a famous comedian and actor within Israel. He has also previously played a taxi driver in the comedy show “Erez Nehedert” in Israel.
The sketch is said to be comedic, while the pair show viewers the sights of Tel Aviv, host city of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The report says that KAN were initially interested in recruiting James Corden to star in the sketch. James is a British comedian famous for his “Carpool Karaoke” sketches on American TV show “The Late Late Show”.
It had also previously been reported that Gal Gadot had turned down the offer to host the contest. At the time the following was reported:
Gal would have been happy to host and take part in the Eurovision. But unfortunately scheduling constraints and previous commitments won’t allow it.
Having recently provided the voice of character Shank in the Disney movie “Ralph Breaks the Internet”, Gal will reprise her role as Wonder Woman next year in the sequel movie “Wonder Woman 1984”.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will take place next month in Tel Aviv, Israel. 41 countries will compete with the semi finals taking place on Tuesday the 14th and Thursday the 16th of May. The final will take place on Saturday the 18th of May where the comedy taxi sketch will be seen. The show will be hosted by Erez Tal and Bar Refaeli, with Assi Azar and Lucy Ayoub in the Green Room.
