About Lynda:

Performed in a band during high school called 'Just Us', which consisted of a marimba, a congo drum, an acoustic guitar, and a stand-up bass played by another girl. When she was 17, she joined another band for more exposure called 'The Relatives' (because two members were cousins) which opened at the Sahara Hotel casino lounge in Las Vegas for three months. Because Lynda was under 21, she had to enter the casino through the kitchen. Gary Burghoff (who played Radar O'Reilly in "M*A*S*H" (1972) ) was the drummer. In 1970, she joined the last band she sang with, called 'The Garfin Gathering with Lynda Carter', and their first performance was in a brand new San Francisco hotel that had no sidewalk entrance built yet, so they played to mostly the janitors and whatever hotel guests parked their cars in the underground garage. But she performed so well under such intimidating circumstances, that Howard "Speedy" Garfin nicknamed Lynda "Wonder Woman!".

Won the title of Miss World USA representing her home state of Arizona in 1972.

A friend sat Lynda and her present husband, lawyer Robert Altman, together at a social dinner in the hopes that the two would hit it off.

Performed many of her own stunts on "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman" (1975) including hanging from a helicopter, to the nervousness of CBS, during the second season episode "Anschluss '77".

Ended each of her television specials singing the song "Always".

While filming Battle of the Network Stars (1976) (TV), she poured champagne over the head of host Howard Cosell after her team won the tug of war contest not knowing he wore a hairpiece. Cosell was really upset. Later, whenever she saw him at a restaurant in New York, she would sent over a bottle of champagne and he always knew that it was from her.

Owns the DVD release rights to her television specials.

When asked, during her on-line Lens Express chat on Monday, November 8th, 1999, who she would like to portray Wonder Woman in a big screen movie version, she stated that she would prefer either actress Catherine Zeta-Jonesor supermodel Cindy Crawford.

Scenes cut from Francis Ford Coppola epic Apocalypse Now (1979)

In the film Sky High (2005), Lynda plays Principal Powers, the principal of the high school for the children of superheroes. Powers has comet-related powers.

On the Circus of the Stars #2 (1977) (TV), Lynda was the target for David Janssen, who threw daggers at her. He came close, but he missed her every time.

The son of one of her stunt doubles, Jeannie Epper, told his classmates that his mother was Lynda's stunt double on the series "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman" (1975), but they didn't believe him, not even after he showed them a picture of his mother in the Wonder Woman costume from the set. When Lynda herself found out about this, she invited the boy's class to the set so they could see Jeannie herself in action.
