The early reviews for Wonder Woman are in, and now television’s former Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, is adding her voice to the chorus of praise.
Carter attended the premiere of Wonder Woman, where she met Gal Gadot, the film’s star. In a tweet after the premiere, Carter had nothing but praise for both the film and Gadot’s performance.
“What a wonderful movie!!” Carter wrote in her tweet. “Gal Gadot is fabulous as Wonder Woman. I had so much fun at the premiere.”
Carter is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and beauty pageant winner, but it's best known for her role as Diana Prince on the Wonder Woman television series from 1975 through 1979. Carter was the definitive live-action version of the character until Gadot took over the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
