Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter spoke about her former co-star Lyle Waggoner in an Instagram post after his death.
After Lyle Waggoner sadly passed away on March 17, Lynda Carter took to Instagram to honor her former co-star from the TV series that many DC fans remember fondly. Lyle Waggoner starred as Steve Trevor in the show, bringing the character to life in 1975, shortly after Kaz Garas played him in the 1974 Wonder Woman TV movie. The star appeared as both Steve Trevor and his son Steve Trevor Jr. across the three seasons of the Lynda Carter series.

The star also mentioned that she was glad to catch up with him in 2018. She finished the heartfelt message by saying that she missed her former co-star.

Lyle Waggoner was a memorable colleague and co-star, but he was also a friend. His kindness meant the world to me when I was very young and just starting my career. Lyle and I last spoke in 2018 and I’m so glad we had the chance to catch up. We talked about how lucky we both were to be surrounded by such wonderful family and friends. I will miss you, Lyle.

Plot details on the Wonder Woman 1984 are being kept under lock and key, but the film is said to follow Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince as she comes into conflict with the Soviet Union in the 1980s and encounters a formidable new adversary named Cheetah, played by Kristen Wiig. Along the way, Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor somehow comes back from the dead, and Pedro Pascal’s Maxwell Lord somehow factors into the story.
Directed by Patty Jenkins from a script she co-wrote with David Callaham and a treatment she developed with Geoff Johns, Wonder Woman 1984 stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wigg, Pedro Pascal, Natasha Rothwell, Ravi Patel, Gabriella Wilde, Connie Nielson, and Robin Wright.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in theaters on June 4, 2020.
