Linda Carter Detailed Biography Born in Phoenix, the youngest of three children, Lynda made her professional singing debut at fifteen in Tempe, Arizona. She attended Kenilworth School, then the Arcadia Titans High School and the Arizona State University. She studied classical dances for seven years in the School Ballet of Phoenix. She also studied chanting and piano, and had her dramatic training with Laura Zucker, Stella Adler, Charles Conrad, Milton Katselas, Lieux Dressler, and Greta and Sandra Seacat. In 1973, she won the Miss World-U.S.A. title and shortly thereafter outdistanced hundreds of other actresses for the part of "Wonder Woman," a character she infused with such depth and humor that it has become one of the most indelible characters in TV history.
Within the past two years, she hosted three other dynamic television variety specials, starred in two dramatic telefeatures, headlined London's famed Palladium, and became the first entertainer to associate herself with a major women's professional tennis tournament. Lynda Carter has proven a truly international star. In the world of sports, she is a premier attraction as well. Lynda hosts such premier professionals as Chris Evert Lloyd and Martina Navratilova in the annual $125,000 Lynda Carter/Maybelline Tennis Classic which has been held in Deer Creek, Florida. Appointed Beauty and Fashion Director of Maybelline Cosmetics, Lynda appears in advertising as well as serving as a consultant in the development and marketing of new products. Her achievement in this area startled even the flamboyant cosmetics industry. In the 18 months following her association with Maybelline products, the company's sales tripled, skyrocketing from $70 million to over $200 million.
