Lynda Carter Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Linda Jean Córdova Carter was born in Phoenix, Arizona USA, on the 24th July 1951, of English and Scots-Irish (father) and French, Spanish and Mexican (mother) descent. Lynda Carter is a well-known singer, songwriter and actress, perhaps best known for her portrayed of “Wonder Woman’, in the popular 70s television series of the same name.

So just how rich is Lynda Carter? Sources estimate that Lynda’s net worth is $10 million, all of it made in the entertainment industry: television series, small and big screen projects, studio albums, tours, shows and advertising. She was making $3 million a year back in the ’80, but Lynda Carter and her husband own a 20,000 square foot Georgian-style mansion in Maryland, the house coming with six landscaped acres of land; it has 16 bathrooms, library with a fireplace, swimming-pool, tennis court, hot tub and a waterfall.

Lynda Carter Net Worth $10 Million

Before becoming a beauty queen, Lynda Carter was already a singer, mostly known in Arizona. As a teenager she performed in bands and dropped out of college to follow her music career. After trying her luck in Los Angeles, she came back home discouraged, but she became famous as a beauty queen when she was crowned Miss World USA in 1972, and later that year she was one of the semi-finalists in Miss World 1972. She used the money won in the beauty contest to learn how to act, and then started making serious money after she turned from singing to acting. She was the highest-paid actress on TV in the ‘70s: as Wonder Woman, she was paid $3,500 an episode and later on she was making about $1million a year, which was a record for a woman in a television series.

In 1980, Lynda Carter became the spokesperson for Maybelline Cosmetics, and in the ’90s she endorsed Lens Express. The former beauty queen has continuously been working in the industry after the television series was over. She had her own Las Vegas variety show, not only very popular, but unexpectedly successful from the financial perspective and, a few years after, she continued with a lot of variety show specials airing on CBS. Movies also contributed to her net worth, her work as an actress bringing her another estimated $3 million in the later years. Lynda Carter also had many appearances in television movies and series, such as “Slayer”, “Law & Order”, “Smallville”, “Two and a Half Men”, and “Skin Wars”.

Lynda has never given up on her calling for music either, and in 2005 she successfully appeared in “Chicago” at London’s West End Adelphi Theatre. In 2007 she put on a cabaret show, “An Intimate Evening” with Lynda Carter, performed on big stages all over the USA. After a first not so successful album released in 1978, 30 years later she has released another two albums, At Last (2009) and Crazy Little Things (2011), both well received by the American public.

Music and entertainment is another chapter which seems to help Lynda Carter become not only more and more popular, but also richer. In the last four years Lynda Carter’s net worth almost doubled, from $5.1 million in 2011 to an estimated $10 million in 2015.

In her personal life, probably the hardest moment for Lynda Carter’s finances was in 1992, when her husband Robert Altman, who was the president of First American Bank, became involved in a huge bank scandal. The entire affair ended with Altman cleared of charges, but with costs of $10 million in legal fees. These costs depleted her net worth somewhat, before Lynda Carter and the lawyer Robert Altman married in January 1984; they have two children. The singer has always remained dedicated to her family and even quit on her music career until her children went to college. She was previously married to Ron Samuels, who was also her agent at the beginning of her career.

Lynda Carter is a supporter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure (the largest breast cancer organization in the USA), of Pro-Choice rights for women and of the legal equality for LGBT people. She uses also her fame to speak about IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) a disease which affects more and more women nowadays.

2 Carter sang at Richmond Hill Centre for Performing Arts in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada on April 28, 2015.
3 The only time Lynda performed her role of Wonder Woman after the television series ended on CBS was in the opening for her first television music special.

4 Her mother died from Alzheimer's disease on February 18, 2013 at age eighty-nine.
5 Performed a three night cabaret act at the Catalina Jazz Club in Los Angeles, California. [June 2007]
6 Performed a 6 night cabaret show at the York Hotel's Plush Room in San Francisco, California. [May 2007]
7 Carter released an album entitled "Portrait" in 1978, but the sales of the album were poor. She released the Jazz type LP "At Last" in 2009, which was 31 years after her first album. The album peaked at a respectable #6 on the Jazz charts. Recently, she released another album called "Crazy Little Things".
8 According to a DVD commentary by Lynda Carter, she invented the "spin" move when Diana Prince would transform into Wonder Woman.

Komen Foundation (for breast cancer education and research) in which she received the Jill Ireland Award for her volunteer work, the Red Cross, USO, Ronald McDonald House, and many charities benefiting children.
12 In early June 2008, Carter found a body floating in the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. while rowing out of the Potomac Boat Club. She called out to some fishermen and waited for the police to arrive.
13 Her only nude appearances in film came with one of her first, Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw (1976).
14 Toured as a singer with several rock groups before returning to Arizona in 1972.
15 Attended Globe High School in Globe, Arizona and Arcadia High School in Phoenix. She attended Arizona State University, but after being voted the "most talented" student, she dropped out in order to pursue a career in music.
16 Grew up an avid reader of the Wonder Woman comic books.
17 Ranked #3 on Wizard magazine's "Sexiest Women of TV" list. [March 2008]
18 Daughter-in-law of television producer Sophie Altman.
19 She has two children with Robert Altman: James Clifford Altman (born January 14, 1988) and Jessica Carter Altman (born October 7, 1990).
20 She returned to her first love, singing, by appearing in the play "Chicago" at London's West End Adeplhi Theatre on September 26, 2005 as "Mama Morton", the leather-clad women's jailer for an eight-week run. Lynda has now successfully appeared in all three forms of acting, stage, screen and television.
21 Auditioned for the role of Captain Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager (1995), which went to Kate Mulgrew.
22 She has English and Irish ancestry through her father, but Mexican and Spanish ancestry though her mother.
23 The son of one of her stunt doubles, Jeannie Epper, told his classmates that his mother was Lynda's stunt double on the series Wonder Woman (1975), but they didn't believe him, not even after he showed them a picture of his mother in the Wonder Woman costume from the set. When Lynda herself found out about this, she invited the boy's class to the set so they could see Jeannie herself in action.
24 On the Circus of the Stars #2 (1977), Lynda was the target for David Janssen, who threw daggers at her. He came close, but he missed her every time.
25 Her scenes were deleted from Francis Ford Coppola's war epic Apocalypse Now (1979).
26 When asked, during her on-line Lens Express chat on Monday, November 8, 1999, who she would like to portray Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in a big screen movie version, she stated that she would prefer either actress Catherine Zeta-Jones or supermodel Cindy Crawford. The first actress to portray Diana Prince/Wonder Woman on the big screen turned out to be Gal Gadot.
27 Owns the DVD release rights to her television specials.
28 While filming Battle of the Network Stars (1976), she poured champagne over the head of host Howard Cosell after her team won the tug of war contest not knowing he wore a hairpiece. Cosell was really upset. Later, whenever she saw him at a restaurant in New York, she would send over a bottle of champagne and he always knew that it was from her.
29 Ended each of her television specials singing the song "Always".
30 Performed many of her own stunts on Wonder Woman (1975) including hanging from a helicopter, to the nervousness of CBS, during the second season episode, Wonder Woman: Anschluss '77 (1977).
31 A friend sat Lynda and her present husband, lawyer Robert Altman, together at a social dinner in the hopes that the two would hit it off.
32 Won the title of Miss World USA representing her home state of Arizona in 1972.
33 Performed in a band during high school called 'Just Us', which consisted of a marimba, a congo drum, an acoustic guitar, and a stand-up bass played by another girl. When she was 17, she joined another band for more exposure called 'The Relatives' (because two members were cousins) which opened at the Sahara Hotel casino lounge in Las Vegas for three months. Because Lynda was under 21, she had to enter the casino through the kitchen. Gary Burghoff (who played Radar O'Reilly on M*A*S*H (1972)) was the drummer. In 1970, she joined the last band she sang with, called 'The Garfin Gathering with Lynda Carter', and their first performance was in a brand new San Francisco hotel that had no sidewalk entrance built yet, so they played to mostly the janitors and whatever hotel guests parked their cars in the underground garage. But she performed so well under such intimidating circumstances, that Howard "Speedy" Garfin nicknamed Lynda "Wonder Woman!".
34 Does motivational/professional speaking engagements.
35 She is a singer for cabarets and a television actress.

#Quote
1 Some of the best memories of my childhood were of being with my grandmother when she was making tortillas, having to cut the tripe when she made menudo, or sorting the sticks and stones out of the beans on her table.
2 Mexican food is my weakness. Thank God I live in Washington where it's horrible. They put in some tomatoes and bell peppers and call it salsa!
3 [England, September 2005] I've been in recovery for nine years. I describe the experience as like being an unwilling participant with alcoholism. The whole experience is very frightening and I know it's a big problem here like it is back home. It's a scary situation to be in. I'm just trying to do my bit and let people know that they're not alone if they're going through it. If I can help them out, do the work I love to do and spend the rest of my time with friends and family, enjoying my time with the people I love, then that's what it's all about.
4 It never really felt like I had a lot of substance in my life. I had broken up with my former husband [Ron Samuels] and I kind of looked around. I didn't have a lot of friends. I had become isolated by fame. I longed for a family and some substantive relationships. Fame is a vapor. You can't grab hold of it.
5 [regarding her years as a born again Christian]: I kinda gave that up. I kinda got burned out, going around and banging on people's doors and telling them what to believe. I mean, what's that all about?
6 [on life before Wonder Woman]: To tell you the truth, I couldn't pay my next month's rent when I got the part. I was thrilled to have a pilot of my own.
7 Wonder Woman struck a chord that no one expected.
8 [on the Wonder Woman (1975) series being updated from World War II]: I think they [CBS] wanted to retool it and modernize it when they bought it, so they weren't just buying the same show.
9 I think I was much better in the part when it was modernized. The series matured as it went along.
10 I'm 5' 9", but most people think I'm about 6 feet tall. It's because I have very long legs.
11 I really loved doing the stunts. I had a lot of stunt women, because they all did something different, but I ended up doing most of the fights myself. The stunt guys taught me how to throw a punch, and eventually I became an honorary member of the Stunt Women's Association.
12 [on characterizing Wonder Woman]: I tried to play her like a regular woman who just happened to have superhuman powers. I figured she'd lived with it every day of her life.
13 [on the enduring popularity of the Wonder Woman (1975) series]: I'd like to think I had something to do with it, but it's a phenomenon unto itself. And it's not too bad to be a sort of pop icon, you know? It's not too tough to handle.
14 [on hanging from the helicopter for an episode of Wonder Woman (1975)]: The stunt girl was about to go under it and I said "Oh, I can do this!". I ran under and they went up, and when the producers found out about it, they went ballistic.
15 [When told by an interviewer that he owned a copy of her solo record album "Portrait"]: Oh my God. You and three other people.
16 I won't consider myself a star until I've had more experience. I think the real stars are people like Streisand, Brando, Dustin Hoffman, Hepburn... Hepburn is my favorite. She epitomizes to me what a star should be.
17 [When asked if she made a profit from the Wonder Woman dolls]: I think that you're probably familiar with a problem in Hollywood, and that is that they market you and they use you. They did a mask of my face and put it on the doll and they put my name on for the first run of it. And then they took my name off and said they didn't have to pay me anymore. So it's the kind of thing that you can be used SO much in this industry. I make nothing. I don't even make anything from the reruns. Don't ever settle for net profits. It's called "Creative Accounting".
