Lynda Carter 2005“It’s not about whether my reading is good. It’s, ‘How does Lynda look?’ If people have not seen you recently, there is a tendency in this business for them to think you had a bad facelift or gained 50 pounds. When I go to meetings, I can see the relief on their faces.”Lynda Carter
