Lynda Carter finally received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame earlier this week and she posed for pictures while striking her iconic Wonder Woman pose. Even after the success of the DCEU's Wonder Woman, many still think of Carter's version of the character from the 1970s television series. Lynda Carter launched into stardom portraying Diana Prince for 4 seasons in the mid 70s, and the actress has been rightfully proud of her work. Carter's Wonder Woman paved the way for the future of women in superhero roles.
Lynda Carter excepted her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and was introduced by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins. Jenkins said that Carter is a "sister in the struggle," and that she is, "just the coolest, smartest, most powerful yet elegant, beautiful and lovely person." The two became fast friends over the phone when the director consulted with Carter before starting the Wonder Woman movie. Lynda Carter was able to give her advice from her groundbreaking work on the Wonder Woman television series. Patty Jenkins had this to say.
"It was Lynda's portrayal of Wonder Woman that made me fall in love with her because her Wonder Woman made me believe that I could have whatever I wanted, and even more importantly, it made me unashamed to want it."
Many were expecting Lynda Carter to make a cameo in Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman movie, but it just didn't work out in the end because of scheduling conflicts. When asked about a cameo in the upcoming Wonder Woman 2, Carter revealed that she was leaving it up to the "universe and Patty." If the cameo takes place, it will more than likely be done in secret, which could explain why Jenkins and Carter have both been tight-lipped regarding the subject. Fans of the Wonder Woman TV series have been waiting for a definitive answer about a possible cameo for a while now, but it seems like it's destined to happen.
The Wonder Woman television series ran from 1975 to 1979, lasting a total of three seasons on CBS. The massively popular show shot Lynda Carter into fame and pop culture, which was just recently amplified yet again with the release of the Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot. Carter is best-known for her portrayal of Diana Prince, but she was also a former Miss World semi-finalist in 1972 and appeared in many shows and movies over the years. She even appeared in Super Troopers as Governor Jessman and reprised her role for the upcoming sequel.
Lynda Carter received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after 50 years in the entertainment industry, which the actress is incredibly proud of. She attributes the Wonder Woman TV show for starting her career and loves seeing that it has all come back around again, full circle. The Wonder Woman character is arguably bigger now than ever before, which is based on the work that Lynda Carter did in the 1970s.
