The Hollywood Walk of Fame will be welcoming none other than Wonder Woman as one of their new stars. Lynda Carter, who portrayed the heroine in the classic 1970s television series will be receiving a star on the legendary Walk of Fame.
Before Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot enthralled audiences with the Wonder Woman movie, many fans’ iconic interpretation of the character was that of Carter’s portrayal of the Amazonian warrior. The iconic images of her spinning around into her suit and the countless times she twirled the Lasso of Truth are permanently ingrained within the pop culture consciousness.
Carter has since been incredibly supportive of the new Wonder Woman movie. She has publicly expressed her love for Jenkins’ direction and has given Gadot’s performance her blessing. Following in the footsteps of an icon is pretty difficult, but if Carter gives you her blessing, you know you have hit the jackpot.
Beyond Wonder Woman, Carter has had roles in other superhero-related properties. She portrayed the high school principal in the underrated Disney film, Sky High. Recently, Carter returned to the world of DC comics in the Supergirl TV series. Carter plays President Olivia Marsdin on the series in one of the most fitting castings of all the DC television shows.
Carter joins the likes of Mark Hamill, Jeff Goldblum, Lin-Manuel Miranda and “Weird Al” Yankovic among others as part of the 28 newest names to be added to the Walk of Fame. Congratulations to her, and may she continue to embody the spirit of Wonder Woman for more years to come.
Here’s the synopsis for Wonder Woman:
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman is in theaters now.
