Lynda Carter only had $25 when she was cast as Wonder Woman

When Lynda Carter was cast as the most famous female super hero for the 1970s Wonder Woman series, she only had $25 in her bank account.

It seems like she was destined to play it: The actress tested for the role in a 1974 TV movie -the part eventually went to Cathy Lee Crosby.

After the unsuccessful audition, Carter beat out 2,000 other women to land the role of Wonder Woman a year later.
