She played the super heroine for three seasons in the 1970s. The show became a phenomenon and she won over audiences instantly.

Needless to say, by the end of the 1970s, Lynda Carter had stamped her place in American popular culture. But even before Lynda Carter landed the role of Wonder Woman, she already had a remarkable career.

She appeared on talent shows as a young child and was part of a band during her high school years. She would later study at Arizona State University before dropping out to pursue a career in music.

She joined the band The Garfin Gathering and toured the country with them well into the early 1970s. In 1972, she left the band and went on to win the Miss World USA Beauty Pageant. This victory caught the eye of prominent television producers.

This proved to be fortuitous as she had also begun taking acting classes after ending her music career. She began playing bit parts in popular TV shows including Nakia and Starsky & Hutch. She also had small roles in several B-grade movies.

Then, in 1976, she won the role of a lifetime in Wonder Woman. This solidified her place in American television history. After the show ended in 1979, she continued to work in film, television, and music.

But what happened to her in her personal life? It’s clear to see that her early career was a series of milestones. Success came to her without many hurdles. But did she face many challenges after the success of Wonder Woman?
