Linda Jean Córdova Carter (born July 24, 1951 in Phoenix, Arizona), better known as Lynda Carter, is an American actress, singer, songwriter, model, and beauty pageant titleholder.

Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, she was crowned Miss World USA 1972. She's most famously known for portraying Wonder Woman in the eponymous TV series (1975-1979). Ironically, another beauty pageant titleholder took the mantle several decades later, with her blessing and support. She also coincidentally enough has the same birthday as that film’s director.

She's made countless appearances in TV series, most recently as US President Olivia Marsdin in Supergirl. Before that, she appeared in Smallville, joining a long list of previous DC Comics adaptations actors being recast as homage in new DC-inspired material.
