About Lynda Carter
As for the day, Lynda Carter net worth stands at $10 million dollar. During her career this actress has portrayed numerous characters, but for most of us her name remains synonymous with “Wonder Women”. Lynda has portrayed this fictitious heroine for three seasons in the 1970s. The show was incredibly popular back then and it remains classic to this day. Although the show was a phenomenon unto itself, there is no doubt that the extraordinary performance and looks of Lynda had a lot to do with its success.
Now speaking about the early life of Lynda, few people know that once she has been a part of a band and even released her solo album. The star entered her first band while still in high school and it was called “Just Us”. Then, hoping for more exposure, she started singing with another band, called “The Relatives”. The band used to open at the Sahara Hotel casino lounge in Las Vegas . At the time Carter was still a teenager and she did not even have a right to be in casino, hence, every evening she had to enter through the kitchen. The third and last band Lynda has been with was ‘The Garfin Gathering with Lynda Carter’. Just like the previous two projects, it did not manage to attract wider interest or increase Lynda Carter net worth. Hence the actress abandoned the dream to ever become a famous singer and concentrated on acting instead. In 1976, when already famous as a Wonder Woman, she released a solo jazz album “Portrait”. Its sales were so poor, once when an interviewer mentioned he has her album Lynda replied “Oh my God. You and three other people”.
As you know, for Lynda acting turned out to be much more profitable profession than singing. But Lynda Carter net worth did not start growing right after she entered the industry. Although she made her television debut in 1994, by the end of the following year her financial situation was still pretty miserable. In fact in one of her interviews the actress revealed that by the time she has landed a role of Wonder Woman she could not pay the next months bills. Then when she started portraying Wonder Women, who she described as a normal woman who happened to be beautiful and have superpowers, her fortune started growing at an impressive rate. However, due to the dishonesty and manipulations of people working in the industry Lynda Carter net worth did not increase as much as it should have. According to the actress, although the popular doll Wonder Woman was made based on the mask of her face, soon the marketers stopped using her name and claimed this releases them from the burden to pay for her. In addition, she did not get anything for the re-runs of television series.
