Born in Arizona, Lynda Carter is best known for winning our hearts as TV’s iconic Wonder Woman. In addition to her long acting career, Lynda is also an accomplished singer who has performed to rave reviews before sold-out crowds around the world. Lynda has the distinction of producing and starring in five highly rated CBS television specials, several of which were Emmy Award nominated. She has appeared onstage with many of the world’s most popular singers, including Kenny Rogers, Ray Charles, Tom Jones, George Benson and Ben Vereen.
Lynda made her professional singing debut at age 14 in Tempe, Arizona. In 1972 she won the Miss World-USA title and shortly after outdistanced hundreds of other actresses for the part of Wonder Woman, a character she infused with such depth, humor, and empowerment that it has become one of the most indelible characters in television today. Her fame led to her becoming the “face” of Maybelline Cosmetics, and she remained their top model for over a decade. In addition to Wonder Woman, Lynda’s long and successful career has included starring roles in 2 other television series, Partners in Crime and Hawkeye, starring in numerous movies, and appearing in many television roles on such series as Law and Order and Two and a Half Men. This year, she has a role as the President of the United States on the popular CW series Supergirl, and she will be seen in the upcoming Super Troopers 2 movie.
In addition to her professional endeavors, Lynda has been the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including one given her this past May when she was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Alliance for Women in Media (The Gracies) for her pioneering role for women in television. A long-time advocate for equal and human rights, Lynda has supported many charities, including as a founding member of the National Race for the Cure (for breast cancer research), and for such other organizations as Father Martin’s Ashley, the U.S.O., Red Cross, Ronald McDonald House, God’s Love We Deliver, GLAAD, and many other charitable organizations. Proud of her Hispanic roots (her mother, Juana Cordova Carter was of Mexican descent), she was presented the Raul Julia Award from the National Hispanic Arts Foundation in Washington, DC last year. In April of 2018, Lynda will be honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
