Lynda Carter is known to most of her acting fans as the beautiful Miss USA winner who was Wonder Woman from 1975 to 1979. The role made her famous and to this day despite having played many other characters throughout her career it is this role that her fans and even entertainment insiders associate her with. As such, it would not be surprising if she displayed some jealousy toward the next person who might try and reprise the role in the movies but not the classy actress Lynda Carter. In a recent interview she put her full support behind the new Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot.
She feels that the return of Wonder Woman to the big screens has long been overdue and feels that Gal Gadot can be great in the role as long as the script is written well.
Her major concern with the studios reprising the role is the hope that they realize that Wonder Woman in her eyes was not about her super powers but rather her heart and intellect. Wonder Woman operated with an understand of right and wrong and was actually a good person according.
The danger of a movie studio reprising the role of Wonder Woman is that they sometimes forget that the character is a woman and they should not attempt to turn her into a macho "Superman type of character". If they provide the new Wonder Woman with a good script she feels the movie will be exceptional.
Her support for the new Wonder Woman is indicative of the quality person that she is. Some actors act as if no one can ever perform a role that they performed earlier in their career but Lynda Carter showed class when she made clear to the interviewer that she supported Gal Gadot as the new Wonder Woman.
Many actors and actresses should take notice of how Lynda Carter addressed the topic concerning the reprising of the role she made famous. Her approach and her words about topics such as Wonder Woman are the reason why she is still to this day one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood.
