Youngest of 3 siblings.
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"!
Adrianne Palicki knew she had big boots – and a super-sexy, skin-tight suit – to fill when she signed on for NBC's upcoming re-launch of Wonder Woman, an iconic role originated by Lynda Carter in the '70s.
But there's no rivalry. In fact, Carter has nothing but wonderful things to say about the new TV incarnation.
"I think [Palicki] looks fabulous," Carter, 59, tells E! Online. "It's a new look and, jeez, her body looks fantastic."
She adds, "I'm sure there will be people who say she looks better than me and like... Read More

Lynda Carter tells The Washington Post she was alone in a boat when she saw the body Wednesday. She says she didn`t have a cell phone with her, so she yelled to some fishermen and asked them to call police. Carter waited until rescuers arrived and directed them to the body.

[On the Wonder Woman TV series being updated from World War II]: "I think they [CBS] wanted to retool it and modernize it when they bought it, so they weren`t just buying the same show."
I really loved doing the stunts. I had a lot of stunt women, because they all did something different, but I ended up doing most of the fights myself. The stunt guys taught me how to throw a punch, and eventually I became an honorary member of the Stunt Women`s Association.
