Wonder Woman Wednesday: Lynda Carter gets her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

“Wonder Woman” is back in Hollywood once more — but this time, instead of fighting Nazis in World War II, she’ll be celebrating with all around the world waiting for her.  To illustrate, Lynda Carter will finally become a wonder forever with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“I am very touched by your love and your support,” Carter said during the Walk of Fame star ceremony on Tuesday afternoon. “Among the many awards I’ve had in my career, this one is particularly meaningful. I’m really grateful for the support that the CBS family has given me through the years. It seems impossible that I have been in the entertainment industry for more than 50 years. I have loved them all including the rejections and the bad reviews. I love the creative process and the work.”

The actress defines the role of “Wonder Woman” with the iconic television series AND theme song that aired for three seasons on ABC and CBS from 1975 to 1979.  With her invisible jet, her golden lasso of truth and satin tights, she stands for all that is good.  Fighting for your rights for the old red-white-blue U.S.A. as well as those who can’t fight for themselves, Wonder Woman/Diana Prince puts her all her might on the side of right and just in the world of man against the forces of evil: from the cruelty of Nazis in the 1940s to the rising tide of terrorism, corporate greed and corruption in the 1970s as an agent for the Inter-Agency Defense Command (IADC).  In the words of Wonder Woman?  Women are the wave of the future, and sisterhood is stronger than ever.

Carter made guest appearances in shows such as CW’s Superman prequel “Smallville” as Moira Sullivan, the mother of Chloe Sullivan/Watchtower (Allison Mack).  She also had a recurring role on “Supergirl” as the President of the United States opposite Melissa Benoist’s titular Girl of Steel, who stands for help, hope and compassion … just like Wonder Woman.  Not only that, Wonder Woman stands for equality, peace, acceptance and “Justice in Star-Spangled Pants” when Carter played a version of herself on the CBS sitcom “Two and a Half Men”.

Reruns of “Wonder Woman” can be found every Saturday night on Me-TV.
