Lynda Carter joins cast of Elder Scrolls IV

Wonder Woman actress returns from oblivion to lend vocal talents to Oblivion.


The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Lynda Carter's career seems to be undergoing a minor resurgence of late, as the star of the classic 1970s Wonder Woman TV show has appeared on the big screen in this summer's The Dukes of Hazzard and Sky High, and she will be returning to the small screen in Law & Order and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit next month. In recent years, Carter had become most visible as the celebrity spokesperson for the mail-order contact lens retailer Lens Express, but she found work on the side in a variety of projects, including voice work for the open-ended PC and Xbox role-playing game The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

Carter clearly hasn't forgotten the leaner times, as Bethesda Game Studios has announced that the actress will be returning to its Elder Scrolls series to lend her voice to the upcoming The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion on the PC and Xbox 360. Carter said she was "honored" to be returning to the series.

Carter won't be the only recognizable voice in Oblivion, as she joins Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Robin Hood: Men in Tights) in contributing to the game's reported 50-plus hours of voice work.

Under development for more than three years, Oblivion drops players into the fantasy realm of Tamriel, where the gates to a hellish underworld are about to be opened. The game hasn't yet been rated, but it's scheduled to ship this holiday season. For more on Oblivion, check out GameSpot's impressions of the game from E3.
