The famous actress cum singer Lynda Carter, renowned for her work in the 1970s TV series based on Wonder Woman will be felicitated by the 2,632nd star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame on the coming April 3.

Director Patty Jenkins, who successfully brought Wonder Woman to the big screen last year, will be one of the guest speakers at the event.

Carter won the Miss World America crown in 1972 and became famous internationally when she played the lead role in the DC Comics-based Wonder Woman TV series, where she had replaced Cathy Lee Crosby. The show ran for three seasons between 1975-1979, initially on ABC, and then on CBS. It created an indelible mark on the pop culture.

After her Wonder Woman stint, Carter kept working as a singer and actress, coming out with some studio albums, and being a part of dozens of TV and movie projects, most notable among which were the characters of Principal Powers on Sky High, and President Olivia Marsdin on Supergirl. She also did the voice work for the Elder Scrolls video game series.

The 66-years-old actress/singer supports children’s charities, health campaigns related to women and the LGBTQ community, such as God’s Love We Deliver, GLAAD and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Lynda Carter was present at the world premiere of Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, but, notwithstanding the rumors, there was no cameo from her in the movie. Although the director stated that she is still hoping for a Carter cameo in the sequel scheduled to release next year.
