I've got a book on the complete history of Wonder Woman the cartoon character in which WW 'herself' is listed as 5'9". It's not true that actresses have to be particularly tall to be her, maybe just not a 5'5" one, but not at least 5'10" either. It seems the guess on Lynda's real height here as nearly everywhere else is a rather accurate one.

My guess is she was an easy 5'10" in her prime. Wonder Woman in the comics was an Amazon and I think her comic book height was 6 foot. So my guess is they wouldn't have cast someone shorter than 5'10" to portray her.

Probably 5'10" in peak, now with 64 years a little less.

another pic here.
I think Lucy is taller (although she appears a bit shorter on the pic, due to her posture + Linda slight shoe advantage). I know for sure Lucy is close to 5'10, met her a few times.

She looked slightly shorter next to 5'9.5 listed Lucy Lawless, when the two met recently (footwear wasn't pictured).

dmeyer: It could because she is somewhat insecure about her height.

Met Lynda at her CD signing on June 6,2011. She was impressively tall and still very beautiful. I'd guess 5'9 or 5'10" She was even more beautiful in person and seemed to be very nice!

5 ft 10 peak 5 ft 9 now seems right but whi does she claim 174cm

I watched her in Miss World 1973 video recently and the commentators said "Shes tall, she stand 5'10'" but personaly I think shes 5'9 1/2.

Anywhere between 5'8" to 5'9" is very reasonable so Rob's listing for her seems right on the money.

In hello magazine 2005, she said "I'm 5ft 10in".

ya, infact i saw that already. But it wasn't Lynda herself who said she's 5'8 1/4. It was that lady presenter and she gave that finger meaning shes not sure!

This clip from "Battle of the Network Stars" says 5'8 1/4" about 43 sec. in
Keddy said on 27/Sep/06
I think 5'9 will be the most reasonable height for her cos she said she's 5'9 half on the Rupaul show and there's no doubt shes atleast 5'9.

Back in 1973, Biloxi, MS, she kissed me and though I felt 10' tall, I'd guess she was 5' 10" - 5' 11" in her heels.

I remember once watching a TV show about the 1970s and on one part they were talking about Wonder Woman and quoted she was 'a big girl at 5'10.'

There are tricks used in the miss world competition, a couple of years ago miss France was disqualifed for temporarily stretching her spine 1-1/2" to meet the minimun height.

Lynda Carter was never 5'10! She would have struggled to hit 5'9.

"I'm 5'9 but most people think I'm 6 foot...it's because I have very long legs." - from an old DC Comic book.

She once quoted'People assume I'm 6 ft and are surprised when they meet me that I'm only just over 5'8''.I say I'm 5'9'' to round it up'.

I recently met the famous Wonder Woman goddess.. she said to me "trivia question for ya." I said, "what?" Lynda said, "how tall am I?" I guessed "5 ft 7in." She says, "no sorry.. I'm 5 ft 10 in. tall."
[Editor Rob: she can't make her mind up! But actually nowadays she does look 174-175cm so her 5ft 10 back in her 20's may have been true and she might have downplayed her height slightly...]
