Just weeks after Star Wars legend Mark Hamill took his rightful place there, Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter is set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame commemorating her years of achievement in the entertainment industry.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced the honor via press release earlier this week. Carter's ceremony will be held April 3, and will feature guest speakers including longtime friend CBS CEO Les Moonves and Wonder Woman feature film director Patty Jenkins. Her star will be the 2,632nd on the walk, and will be dedicated at 6562 Hollywood Boulevard.
“Superhero fans will be thrilled to see the TV’s iconic original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter honored with her well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!" Hollywood Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leron Gubler said. “We are proud to add Lynda onto our historic Walk of Fame.”
Carter's career began as a singer and beauty pageant contestant before she landed her breakout role as Diane Prince/Wonder Woman in the ABC (it later moved to CBS) Wonder Woman live-action series. The show ran for three seasons from 1975 to 1979 and made Carter a TV, superhero, and feminist icon. As an actress, she has appeared in films including Sky High and Super Troopers, TV series including Hawkeye (no, not the superhero) and Supergirl, and video games including The Elder Scrolls series. She's also an accomplished singer, having recorded several albums and contributing original songs to the soundtrack of the video game Fallout 4.
Carter's star dedication ceremony will be held at 11:30 a.m. PDT on April 3, and will be livestreamed via the Walk of Fame's official website.
