Original live-action Wonder Woman Lynda Carter tells fans that she is not only posting “thirst traps” on social media, but that she invented them.
Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter has an answer for fans who have dubbed recent photos the actor has shared of herself as “thirst traps.”
Not only has Carter, 70, responded to fans calling her photos “thirst traps,” but the Wonder Woman actor said that she invented the thirst trap altogether. “I’m not posting thirst traps. I invented them! Ha!” Carter wrote on Twitter, along with a photograph of herself rising out of a pool circa 1985.
Carter played the original live-action Wonder Woman in the television show of the same name from 1975 to 1979. In a previous interview, the actor revealed that Wonder Woman producers initially thought that women wouldn’t like her portrayal of Diana, particularly because of the costume.
“When producers mentioned… ‘oh women are gonna not like you because the outfits and blah blah blah,’ I thought, ‘women are going to love me,'” Carter said. “They’re going to want to be me or my best friend because Wonder Woman is non-predatory. Wonder Woman is all of us. That’s what I wanted to bring more than anything was that she did not think of herself as all that, that she did not think of herself as that she was the ‘it’ girl because all of her sisters did the exact same thing that she did on Paradise Island.”
Despite concerns from producers that Carter’s Wonder Woman/Diana Prince wouldn’t appeal to women, this proved not to be the case, as Carter’s portrayal of the iconic superhero earned her a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018. “On Theymiscira they all did the same thing, she just excelled, but she didn’t think that she was particularly special, just in this other world,” Carter said. “But she knew who she was. And that’s the way I played her, that she knew who she was.”
Carter went on to cameo in 2020’s Wonder Woman 1984 as Asteria, whose golden eagle armor Diana wears in the film’s climactic battle with Cheetah. Asteria would also appear in the film’s post-credits scene, confirming that she still exists in the present day, despite a flashback sequence leaving her fate unknown. It was confirmed in November 2021 by franchise star Gal Gadot that Carter would return to the DC Extended Universe for Wonder Woman 3. “She’s a true champion of what [director Patty Jenkins] [Jenkins] and I have been doing, and it was so great that we managed to find the right opportunity to bring her to the last movie and now to the third one,” Gadot said at the time.
Wonder Woman 3 has yet to receive a release date.
