TV’S ORIGINAL WONDER WOMAN AWARDED STAR OF HOLLYWOOD

Just in time for the Patty Jenkins’ sequel of Wonder Woman, TV’s original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter has had the honour of being awarded the Star of Hollywood Walk of Fame. Carter was Wonder Woman on television between 1975 and 1979 and stole the hearts of the world with her empowering portrayal of the female superhero. Since Jenkins’ release of the 2017 film ‘Wonder Woman’, the character has become a symbol for the progression of women’s voices all around the world.

 

Gal Gadot admits “It was Lynda’s portrayal of Wonder Woman that made me fall in love with her, because her Wonder Woman made me believe that I could have whatever I wanted, and even more importantly, it made me unashamed to want it.”

The 66-year-old actress rocked a gorgeous black dress as she accepted her award. After 50 years in the industry, she continues to support fellow women in Film. She even commented on Hollywood’s #MeToo movement, saying:

“The #MeToo movement is strong and I give everything to this generation. What my generation can do is support you. We’ve been screaming the same thing but it took this generation of women to make the difference.”

Director Patty Jenkins, who was at the ceremony, said: “It’s quite incredible to become a part of the story with someone I admire as much as I do Lynda. As the years have gone on, I’ve come to admire that she carried that same spirit into her personal life as well.”
