Adrianne Palicki Talks WONDER WOMAN; Says She Was "Devastated" By Cancellation
In an interview with Collider, the GI JOE: Retaliation actress looks back on her brief time in the Wonder Woman costume, and sounds very disappointed that the pilot didn't lead to series. But, she remains optimistic, and even hopes to play the role again some day..
Anyone who has sat through David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman pilot will know there were no injustices done when ABC decided not to pick it up for a tv series - but, Adrianne Palicki wasn't the problem. Sure her dialogue was appalling for the most part, but the actress injected a lot of heart into the character and was actually one of the only bright spots in an otherwise pretty wretched 45 minutes. Still, poor quality notwithstanding, it can't be easy for any actor to step into such an iconic role only to have the rug pulled from under them. Here is what Palicki had to say to Collider about the whole experience..
How difficult was it for you to go through what you did with the Wonder Woman TV show? Did you have one of those self-doubt moments about being in this business?
PALICKI: have that, every day. I’m not going to lie. I’m serious. And then, I have to remind myself that I love what I do. If I get to do one job a year, or if I get to just do my job, even if people don’t get to see it, I’m doing my job and it’s making me happy. I’ve got to just keep fighting through it and do it, and hope that eventually people see what I’m doing. But, I was devastated. Believe me, I was inconsolable for a good two months. And then, I had to realize that I had a Wonder Woman costume fitted for my body. I got to play that part on film. Not many people get to say that, and that’s cool. Maybe I’ll get to do it again, in a bigger arena. Who knows?
Who knows indeed. It's unlikely of course, but how would you guys feels about Palicki getting another shot at Princess Diana? In Warner Bros. Justice League movie perhaps?
