MegaCon 2019: ‘Wonder Woman’ Lynda Carter sings and shares her story

Lynda Carter is most widely known for her role as the Amazonian Princess, Diana, in the television series that ran from 1975-1979. She then went on to several appearances in shows such as ‘The Muppet Show’ in 1980 and several broadway shows. Carter recently reclaimed and rejoined the DC Comics television and film franchise on CW Supergirl as President Olivia Marsdin.

Alongside her many television appearances, Carter has become a well-known musical artist. She has performed alongside several stars like Ray Charles, Elton John and also her own daughter, Jessica Altman.

During her panel, she performed sets from her classic CBS specials and her soundtrack for the popular video game ‘Fallout 4’.

After several beautiful renditions of both covers and originals, Lynda called her daughter, Jessica, on the stage to perform her own original son “Wicked Lies” from her upcoming album.

“As my mother shared, I went to law school and thought that maybe I would have to give up my love for singing. While finishing up my barr, I thought why do I have to give this up, I don’t. I went down to Nashville and started my own album”, Jessica briefly shared before her musical performance.

After the show, Lynda took a few minutes to take some questions from her fans. A lot of the discussion became quite political discussing Carter’s strong feminist influence. When asked about what character traits she loved about Wonder Woman she said, “I would say intellect and attitude. I mean she has a great attitude about the world around her. The thing about Wonder Woman is she has all the humanity and no one to take advantage of her.”

She also shares her passion for her character as she was “some of the most fun in my life, especially when my manager said ‘hello Wonder Woman’ every time he saw me.”
