Gale has appeared in a number of Italian movies and television shows as well. As an actress, Gale played Fatma in The Water Diviner (2014) and Valkyrie in George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road (2015).

In January 2008, Gale announced her retirement from runway modelling after 15 years and walked the catwalk for the last time just weeks later at a David Jones winter collection launch in Sydney. Her final outfit was the Wonder Woman outfit she was to wear in the still-shelved film Justice League of America.   In March 2011, Gale returned to the runway and closed Alex Perry’s 2011 Melbourne Fashion Festival show.

August 2011 marked Gale’s 10th anniversary with department store David Jones, the longest held fashion contract in Australia. That same month, Gale was officially announced as an ambassador for L’Oréal Paris, joining Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Gwen Stefani as a member of L’Oreal Paris’ exclusive “Dream Team”. Gale signed on as the face of the global beauty brand for Australia and New Zealand and her first campaign for Elvive Total Repair 5 shampoo was launched nationally, however the commercial soon caught the interest of Italy, where it also eventually aired.
