Lynda Carter – Local Celebrity

Lynda Carter is many things, a singer, songwriter, actress and a beauty pageant titleholder as she was named Miss World America in 1972. This being said it only makes sense that she is also Wonder Woman.

Lynda Carter was born Linda Jean Córdova Carter on July 24, 1951 in Phoenix, AZ. She is the daughter of Juanita and Colby Carter. During high school, Carter performed in a band called Just Us, consisting of a marimba, a conga drum, an acoustic guitar, and a stand-up bass. When she was 16, she joined two of her cousins in another band called The Relatives. Carter attended Arizona State University. After being voted “Most Talented”, she dropped out to pursue a career in music. In 1972, Carter was named “Miss World America”. She also signed a modeling contract with Maybelline cosmetics in 1977.

Carter’s acting career took off in 1975 when she landed the starring role on Wonder Woman as the title character and her secret identity, Diana Prince. The Wonder Woman fictional superheroine character was created by the American psychologist and writer William Moulton Marston and artist Harry G. Peter in 1941 for DC Comics. Conceived in the wake of popularity of Superman, Marston designed his creation as counter-programming to the Man of Steel. The Diana Prince/Wonder Woman character is also referred to by such names as the Amazing Amazon, the Spirit of Truth, Themyscira’s Champion, and the Goddess of Love and War. Wonder Woman was an instant hit with readers, and for the last 76 years, the character has been the world’s most prominent DC comic book female superhero. Carter continues to be closely identified with Wonder Woman.

Carter has been married twice. Her first marriage was to her former talent agent, Ron Samuels, from 1977-1982. In January 1984, Carter married Washington, D.C. attorney Robert A. Altman. Carter and her husband have two children: James and Jessica. She currently lives in Potomac, Maryland,in a home she built with her husband 1987. The 20,000 square foot Georgian-style mansion has been profiled in magazines, as well as on HGTV.
