Happy Birthday Lynda Carter (July 24, 1951)

"Wonder Woman really is a phenomenon unto herself, the show and the character really has a life of its’ own. She represented, uh, hope, I think, for young women, and she also represented for young men, mind you, which I get a lot of mail on, the type of, like the perfect woman, one that could be beautiful and smart and fun and strong."

"She was terrific. Vivacious, alive, full of fun. And beautiful. More beautiful than on the screen. She had the scar from the fall, but it was nothing. It was very attractive, actually. Kind of sexy. She was great. She loved to laugh. And she was no dummy. She was a very intelligent woman…At the same time it was difficult to be in her company. If you’ve ever been in the presence of certain extraordinary women, you’ll know what I mean. I’ve experienced it a couple of times in my life. Facing beauty of that kind. It’s not a completely pleasant experience. She gave you this ache in your gut because she was so appealing. And because she was not yours, you know? You felt a kind of vertigo being near her. She was so desirable you felt a little sick from it. Oh my God, she was extraordinary.”- Mickey Knox, one of the actors in The Naked Maja
