According to Gal Gadot, Shank is the coolest character. Who is very experienced and very good at car racing. And has a bad girl aura. However, even so, Shank is very kind and wise. Perhaps, her character is similar to Gisele Yashar. Which is also played by the Wonder Woman (2017) star in the Fast & Furious franchise.
According to director Rich Moore, Gal Gadot has added an extraordinary dimension to Shank’s character. His voice has a lot of texture. So that gives the impression of life for the character. In addition, Moore added, Shank is also very fitting to represent the older sister figure for Vanellope.
