The actress proves to be a wonder woman in the game on Thursday's 'Tonight Show.'

Ahead of hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time this week, Gal Gadot was introduced to the game of charades during her Thursday-night appearance on The Tonight Show.

“I’ve never played this before,” the Wonder Woman star admitted before starting the game with Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus and The Roots’ Tariq Trotter.

“Now I do it? I start? How do you do it? Film, TV, song?” Gadot asked, struggling to comprehend the directions prior to giving her clue.

“That’s not the hard part. You have to have me guess," Fallon said as he covered his face.

"Listen, it’s going to be OK. We’re going to do great,” Gadot said, trying to assure the late-night host they’ll make a great team against Cyrus and Trotter.

Laughing while attempting to portray the song “Born to Run,” Gadot gestures her hands to the floor as she simultaneously squats, leaving the audience to laugh and Fallon to try to hide behind a pillow.

After Fallon failed to guess her song, Gadot joked that she wanted to switch teams. “I almost want to be with their team now, but I’ll be with you,” Gadot said.

But after having a rough start, Gadot proved to be a contender when she guessed Fallon’s clue before he even started. Preparing to portray It, Gadot guessed the film within seconds after Fallon informed her it was a film with a short title.

Floored by her guess, the late-night host joked, “That was the best thing to ever happen to me.”

“I think it’s because Jimmy’s a clown,” Cyrus joked of Gadot's rapid response.

In the final round, both Gadot and Trotter failed to guess Cyrus' and Fallon’s portrayal of the song “Dancing on the Ceiling,” leaving the teams in a tie. 

Gadot will host SNL on Oct. 7 with musical guest Sam Smith.
