Lynda Carter Would "Most Definitely Consider" a WONDER WOMAN Movie Cameo
Published: September 15, 2010 - 10:43am
The actress who starred in the Wonder Woman television series shares her thoughts on bringing the iconic character to life, and whether she would like to be a part of the planned live-action film.
A formal announcement has yet to be made from either Warner Bros or DC Entertainment regarding a realistic production schedule for a Wonder Woman film; which is supposedly already being planned. The comic book character, an Amazonian princess and fierce warrior, hasn't appeared in live-action form since the ABC television of the 1970s. Lynda Carter brought legendary super heroine to live for three seasons; a role that made her a household name.
David Bentley of The Coventry Telegraph recently caught up with the actress while promoting her one-woman theater show, Lynda Carter: At Last; which premieres at the Garrick Theatre, London, on September 17th. The discussion inevitably turned to Wonder Woman, the character Carter portrayed on television beginning in 1974:
Wonder Woman turned you into a TV star in 1974. How do you feel about her now?
"Oh I'm so fond of her. I think she's fantastic. I've always thought she was."
With a Wonder Woman movie planned for 2013, would you like a cameo in it?
"A cameo is kind of a broad word. As they say: "There are no small parts, there are only small actors". If it's something that is gratuitous I won't do it; if it's just for me to show up in it I wouldn't do it, but if there is something written that they think would be appropriate then most definitely I'd consider it. I would love it."
Which actress would you like to see in the lead role?
"I've seen the faces of so many [actresses], but the interesting thing about Wonder Woman is that you really knew her by both characters, because the audience knew she was Wonder Woman when I was playing Diana Prince, so for them it wasn't two different people.
"And I never dumbed her down. I just thought she needed to be smart and capable, but nobody really knew how smart and capable. It's got to be somebody that you want to be best friends with; she's got to have that likability about her, so it would be nice to have somebody who's unknown."
