Lynda Carter is so much more than a pretty face, not that we mind looking at it! She's got it all - the beauty, the brains, the voice. Lynda's been singing from the start, performing multiple different songs during beauty pageants before the start of her Hollywood career. Her signature song on the pageant stage was "When Will I Be Loved" by The Everly Brothers, but she also performed "Please Mr. Postman" by The Marvelettes and "Different Worlds" by Maureen McGovern. Little did she know that she would soon be moving on to an iconic role as Wonder Woman, and even getting to sing two songs in the 1979 episode, "Amazon Hot Wax".

After spending most of 1973 carrying out her Miss World duties, Carter moved to New York. Finally ready to follow her dream, she enrolled in acting lessons at some of the most prestigious schools in the city. Along the way, she crossed paths with other young actors who would one day become big names in the industry, such as Lee Moonves, the future president of CBS. The acting lessons paid off pretty quickly. Carter landed her first role in 1974 on Nakia, a ground-breaking police procedural that centered around a Native American cop working in a small New Mexico city.
