It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Lyle Waggoner has passed away at the age of 84 years old peacefully at his home after battling an illness. He was surrounded by his wife and sons.
He was known for his role as Steve Trevor on Wonder Woman and unfortunately was unavailable to film a cameo appearance in the 2017 Wonder Woman because he was busy participating in television reunion conventions with Carol Burnett. He also appeared in Gunsmoke, Lost in Space, The Carol Burnett Show, The Love Boat, The Love Boat II, Charlie’s Angels, Fantasy Island, Happy Days, Simon & Simon, Danger USA, Murder She Wrote and That 70’s Show.
Waggoner was also one of the top candidates for the title role in the iconic Batman TV series but lost out on the part to Adam West. In June 1973 he was the first Playgirl centrefold. He was also the owner of STAR WAGGONS INC., the largest supplier of studio location rental trailers in the entertainment industry.
