Lynda Carter Recalls Her 'Wonder Woman' Audition Competition (VIDEO)

Lynda Carter on 'The Wendy Williams Show'When Lynda Carter auditioned for 'Wonder Woman' in 1975, she was vying against a bevy of talented actors to get what she saw as the only good role for a woman on television at the time. Carter said today on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) that you had to be a mother, a hooker or a secretary to get on television at that time.

Carter would see many familiar faces at auditions, including Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Ladd, Jaclyn Smith and Lindsay Wagner, including her 'Wonder Woman' audition. "We all ended up, for every part that came along, it was the same group of women," said Carter. "I walk in the room and I see them all sitting there, we go 'Hi.'"

Carter thought for certain one of the others was going to get the role. And now that the TV remake hasn't been picked up and 'Smallville' is done, it may be a while before you see another live-action 'Wonder Woman' on TV.

If they wanted to do a good Wonder Woman series they should go back to that 70's formula of "Mystery of the Week" along with keeping a serial aspect. NO LOVE RELATIONSHIPS FOR WONDER WOMAN PLEASE. There can be sexual tension sure, but after-all if she falls in love she will lose her powers - that's what was so stupid about the most recent remake.

Wonder Woman should be fighting crime as part of a Government agency (as Diana Prince of course) along with Steve and occasionally her sister Wonder Girl. There should also be big name villains like Cheetah, Ares, and Doc. Psycho. Making her a CEO with women issues is insulting both to fans of WW and women in general.
