Who needs Won­der Woman when you have Me­gan Gale? Her cin­e­matic turn as the Ama­zo­nian war­rior might have failed to even­tu­ate when di­rec­tor Ge­orge Miller’s Jus­tice League fran­chise was shelved, but the Aus­tralian model proved to be in pos­ses­sion of a few su­per­hero qual­i­ties of her own when trav­el­ling to New Zealand with Stel­lar for to­day’s cover story. With rain threat­en­ing to in­ter­fere with plans to shoot a heav­ily preg­nant Gale amid the cliffs of the North Is­land, the 41-year-old de­cided it was time to call on her Maori her­itage. “The day started with rain and gale force winds and af­ter Me­gan had a quiet chat with her an­ces­tors the weather eased so we could catch the breath­tak­ing views of the beau­ti­ful coast,” ex­plains cre­ative di­rec­tor Alek­san­dra Beare. With a stun­ning se­ries of pho­tos safely in the bag, Gale sat down for a can­did chat about mother­hood and fam­ily. Also open­ing up with re­mark­able courage is fed­eral MP Emma Husar, whose ac­count of sur­viv­ing do­mes­tic vi­o­lence is raw yet in­spir­ing.
