Lynda Carter Undressed
Lynda Carter (born July 24, 1951) is an American actress. She is best known for the amazonian title role in the fantasy-adventure TV series Wonder Woman which aired from 1975 to 1979.
She entered a local beauty contest and achieved her first national fame by winning Miss World USA in 1972 representing Arizona. She eventually represented the United States in the Miss World pageant, where she reached the semi-finals. After taking acting classes at several New York acting schools, she began making appearing on TV shows such as Starsky and Hutch, Cos and Nakia and B-movies including Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw (1976), which featured nude scenes of her skinny dipping. However, her acting career did not take off until she landed her starring role in the Wonder Woman television series.
Her earnest performance as the scantily clad superhero endeared her to fans and critics and the series lasted for three seasons. Thirty years after first taking on the role, Carter continues to be closely identified with Wonder Woman, so much so that it has proved difficult for producers to find a suitable candidate to play the character in subsequent aborted productions (work on the most recent attempt was announced in 2005).
