Lynda Carter          

Actress & Singer Known for the 1970s TV Series "Wonder Woman;" Miss World USA 1972

Best known for winning our hearts as Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter is an accomplished singer who has performed to rave reviews before sell-out crowds around the world.

In addition to her long acting career, Carter has the distinction of producing and starring in five highly rated network television specials for CBS, several of which were Emmy Award nominated. She has appeared onstage with many of the world’s most famous popular singers including Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, George Benson, and Ben Vereen. Carter made her professional debut at age 14 in Tempe, Arizona.

In 1973 she won the Miss World-USA title and shortly thereafter outdistanced hundreds of other actresses for the part of iconic “Wonder Woman,” a character she infused with such depth and humor that it has become one of the most indelible characters in television history. Her fame led her becoming the ‘face’ of Maybelline Cosmetics, and she remained Maybelline’s top model for over a decade.

Though Carter continued to act in films and television, when she had children she left the road to raise a young family. She returned to live performing in 2006, appearing on the London stage with an acclaimed star turn in Chicago. In 2007 Carter started touring again in venues across the country with her band of Nashville all stars. Carter has brought her concerts to major venues across the country including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. Her first CD, “At Last” was released in 2010 and dropped at No. 6 on the Billboard charts. Her second CD, “Crazy Little Things” was released in 2011. Lynda released her most recent album, “Red, Rock N’ Blues” in 2018.

Carter appeared in the CW hit series "Supergirl" as the President of the United States and also made guest appearances on “Two and a Half Men” and “Law & Order SVU”. She reprised her original role in the film Super Troopers 2 and recently filmed an independent film Heirlooms with Shelley Long. For her incredible career, Carter was presented with her ‘Star’ on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018.
