Adrianne Palicki Talks About The Experience Of Playing Wonder Woman

Gal Gadot will be Wonder Woman in the new sequel to Man of Steel, but the last time anyone saw a Wonder Woman in live action, and the reason this website was created in the first place, was actress Adrianne Palicki.

Palicki played Diana Prince/Wonder Woman/Diana Themiscyra (don’t ask) in the ill-fated Wonder Woman pilot for David E. Kelley in 2011 that did not go beyond the pilot stage. Despite the pilot not hitting the air and getting a critical drubbing from fans who were able to see it, Palicki is upbeat about the experience.

David E. Kelley Admits Wonder Woman Was Out Of His “Comfort Zone”

In a new interview with NYMag’s Vulture, David E. Kelley spoke about his entire [prolific] career, and at the end, of course, he was asked about Wonder Woman. Here are some highlights of what he said:

“Well I first said no, for all the obvious reasons. It’s not really what I do; it’s not a genre that’s in my wheelhouse. But then I started thinking about, What if there were such a person in today’s world and what must it be like to be her? And I was imagining the sense of social isolation that she must feel, that she indeed would probably be a rather complicated beast. When I started thinking about all the complications and potential layers to this superhero, I just got more and more intrigued. It was also something I was a little bit afraid of. That’s good, too. Any writer should get out of his or her comfort zone, and this was way outside of mine.

“So I took a deep breath and decided to go for it. I did not truthfully commit to doing it until I wrote the script. I was going to try writing it, and if I failed on my own terms, I would say no. If I thought, Yeah, this is something I believe in, then I’d turn it in. And it was something I ultimately did get behind. It was hard, but I had a good time writing it. And Warner Bros. and DC both responded very positively — and off we went.”

He also spoke a bit of the casting of Adrianne Palicki as the legendary heroine. “It was not an easy search, but it went far quicker than I ever imagined,” he said. “After writing this script, I remember looking at several people and going, ‘Yeah, now good luck trying to find her.’ She’s got to be strong, smart, emotionally accessible — and oh yeah, an Amazon! Good luck. I remember speaking to DC, and saying, ‘We may have to compromise on the physicality. We need to go with the best actress. And if the best actress is five-foot-five, we have to be open to that, because there’s too many layers for this character to also demand that she be nearly six feet tall.” And then lo and behold, in comes this girl named Adrianne Palicki.”

“I had seen her on Friday Night Lights and I always liked her work, but I didn’t get a sense of her stature,” he continued. “I guess he was sitting down in a lot of the scenes. So she stood up, and we met — eyeball to eyeball — she smiled … and I knew during the course of the conversation that this was Wonder Woman. I just knew it. I had an instinctive feeling that this was her. So then she read. And she was. And she is.”
