Lynda Carter gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Original Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter received a star on the Walk of Fame on Tuesday, honoring her 50-plus years in show business. The 66-year-old star has worked as an actress, singer, and pageant queen, but she’s best known, of course, for playing the titular superhero and feminist icon on the 1970s Wonder Woman TV show. “Wonder Woman gave birth to my career, and now we have come full circle and we have millions of new fans,” said the statuesque actress, 66, noting the new fandom sparked by 2017’s blockbuster film starring Gal Gadot.

“It seems impossible, but I have been in the entertainment industry for more than 50 years — do the math — and I have loved it all,” the jubilant star said, receiving cheers from the boisterous crowd. Carter recalled her early days struggling with rejection and bad reviews, but, she said, “those fade away.”

“I love this business. I love it all. But my fondest memories of my career are the wonderful people I have met,” she continued, acknowledging everyone from the costars to camera operators, publicists to studio executives.

“I would be nowhere without my wonderful fans,” she said, later adding, “I never take it for granted.”

Carter also held back tears while expressing her “unending gratitude” to her family, thanking those in attendance for making her career worthwhile.

“Through the ups and downs and the good times and bad, you have enriched my life and you have always been there for me,” she said. “To all the wonder women out there: We love our men that stand with us and champion our causes and our voices.”
