Wonder Woman's Lynda Carter: My Life at 65

Posted on

PG/Splash News Online

It’s been 37 years since the TV show Wonder Woman went off the air, but the actress who played the iconic superheroine is far from ready to retire.

“I fill my time pretty well,” Lynda Carter, 65, says in the current issue of PEOPLE.

And she’s not wrong.

The actress is currently recording a new album, about to head out on tour, was “thrilled” to see Wonder Woman – who turned 75 this year and will be played by Gal Gadot in the upcoming 2017 film –  named a United Nations Honorary Ambassador last week and, starting Monday, is guest-starring as the President on the CW’s Supergirl.

Still, she says she values being a mom the most.

“The richness of life is being among your family,” says Carter, whose son James, 28, is a lawyer, and daughter Jessica, 26, is a law student. “They are my world.”

Carter begins her appearances on Supergirl Monday at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
