RuPaul isn’t the only queen getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year.
Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, finally became a permanent part of showbiz history when she received her star, the 2,632th on the Walk of Fame, earlier this week in Los Angeles.
“It was Lynda’s portrayal of Wonder Woman that made me fall in love with her because her Wonder Woman made me believe that I could have whatever I wanted,” said Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, who introduced Carter at the unveiling ceremony. “And even more importantly, it made me unashamed to want it.”
“She wasn’t afraid to be soft while tough, she wasn’t afraid to be as loving as she was strong, she wasn’t afraid to love being a woman and celebrate her femininity, all while kicking ass and changing the world.”
Jenkins and Carter have become close friends, a relationship that has caused fans to speculate that we could be seeing Carter have a cameo in the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel.
“You and I connected from the first time that we spoke,” Carter told Jenkins in her speech. “You got the character of Wonder Woman. I knew that from the moment we talked. Your being here means so much to me. Your brilliant work directing Wonder Woman and making her new again, making Wonder Woman a global hit, makes this journey here complete.”
“Wonder Woman gave birth to my career and now we have come full circle, haven’t we? And we have millions of fans —new fans—so I thank you and, yes, you are my sister in so many ways.”
In a recent The New York Times profile, Carter revealed she did not have time to film a cameo in the first Wonder Woman film because she was busy touring with her band—but is hopeful timing can work for the sequel which is set to hit theaters in November 2019.
“I will back Patty on whatever decision she makes,” said the actress.
