Lynda Carter, stuntwoman
Quote:

While filming Wonder Woman in the 1970s, a stunt double named Jeannie Epper typically stepped in for Carter in difficult scenes.

But in some cases, Carter performed her own challenging stunts. We're not talking about little jumps and punches. No, we're talking about flying into the air with no wrist guards and no safety net.

That's exactly what Carter did in the season two episode "Anschluss 77." While filming the episode, it became clear the stunt double didn't look anything like Carter.

With the sun setting and the chance to shoot the scene diminishing, Carter chose not to waste any more time. She held onto the aircraft with her bare hands as it ascended.

Of course, Carter says she got into trouble with the network after filming wrapped. But she adds it was totally worth it.

That's right ... that's actually Lynda Carter hanging under that helicopter for the entire shot with no safety equipment to save her life if she let go while the helicopter was in flight. You'd better believe the show's producers had more than just kittens when they found out she'd done the stunt personally! After all, you're not supposed to risk your star performer on doing stunts like that ... even in the 70s when there was no CGI.

That right there deserves an Easter Egg somewhere in the game.

Hmm, Carter travel agency advertisement, sign, or building might work!

For some reason, I have the desire to grab a water gun. That was so bad Amerikatt.

For some reason, I have the desire to give you an industrial vat of Catsi's Toxic Waste Chili (tm). That joke was so awesome, Amerikatt.

Correcticated for you, RottenLuck!

I know very well the idea of using a water gun on a cat is a bad idea. One time... One time and Tom kept leaving hairballs in my bed. The water gun does not work.

For no reason...*tosses a catnip laced mouse toy in Amerikatt's direction*

Doing her own stunts is awe inspiring.

It's more impressive to realize that the "technology" to perform the kinds of "stunts" you're talking about existed IRL as far back as the mid 1970s, give or take a few million years of human evolution. Thankfully it only took 40ish years for most computer games to catch up to implementing this reality.
