Lyle Waggoner 1935 – 2020
Born April 13, 1935 (Kansas City) Died on March 17, 2020 in Westlake, California.
Lyle Waggoner was age 84 when he died. He was the original Steve Trevor for Wonder Woman on TV.
He was up for the role of Bruce Wayne in the 1960s Batman, but lost out to Adam West. Altogether he had 58 acting credits for roles between 1966 and 2018.
Lyle Wesley Waggoner was famous in entertainment for his long work on The Carol Burnett Show from 1967 to 1974, perhaps more so than being Steve Trevor (Steve Trevor Jr.) on Wonder Woman from 1975 to 1979.
As Wonder Woman has risen to even more popularity through new film versions, his association with the girl from Paradise Island has made him better known for that role versus his award-winning run on the top-rated Carol Burnett variety show.
Waggoner also worked as a sculptor, show presenter, a travel trailer salesman, and male model.
