How Lynda Carter’s net worth was built

Best known for her role as Wonder Woman in the 1970s television show, Lynda Carter has had a lengthy career as an actress in movies, television, and video games. She’s also a singer.

As a teenager, Carter got her start as a singer for The Relatives, a band that also included actor Gary Burghoff. After a few years of singing in hotels, she returned home and won the Miss World USA title for her home state of Arizona. She wouldn’t return to singing until 2005, when she accepted the role of Mama Morton in the musical “Chicago.”

In 1975, Carter accepted the role of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in the television series that would run for five years and make her famous. She later acted in several made-for-TV movies. From 1994 to 1995, she played Elizabeth on the TV show “Hawkeye.” Since then, Carter has taken smaller roles on many television shows and done voice acting for the “Elder Scrolls” video game series.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Carter’s net worth was $10 million as of May 2017.
