Biography

Actress Adrianne Palicki possessed a fierce determination and commitment to her craft that made her an easy choice to play one of the most beloved superheroes of all time. She first made her mark with guest roles on popular crime and drama shows before she became a series regular on the critically lauded series "Friday Night Lights" (NBC/DirecTV, 2006-2011), where she portrayed a town vixen trying to shake off her bad-girl reputation. Palicki's career soared when she scored the lead on NBC's revamp of the popular 1970s series "Wonder Woman" (2011), where she donned the infamous gold cuff and shiny, star-spangled costume popularized by Lynda Carter in the original incarnation. The iconic role suddenly thrust the relatively unknown Palicki into the Hollywood spotlight, giving her an opportunity to flex her acting muscles, and paving the way for even more exciting roles to follow.
