Trivia (8)

She and Kitty O'Neil were both stunt doubles to Lynda Carter in episodes of Wonder Woman (1975). Epper was also a stunt double for Kate Jackson in episodes of Charlie's Angels (1976). In addition, she was a cinematic stunt double for Kathleen Turner for the mud slide scene in Romancing the Stone (1984).
Her son told his classmates that she worked on the Wonder Woman (1975) TV series but they didn't believe him. He even went so far as to show them a picture of her in the "Wonder Woman" costume from the set and they still didn't believe him. Wonder Woman (1975) star Lynda Carter eventually heard about this and took it upon herself to personally invite the entire class to the set so they could see Epper herself in action.
Daughter of John Epper.
During the filming of Foxy Brown, Epper told Pam Grier's stunt double to take a step forward before hitting her with a huge painting in a heavy frame during a fight scene. The stunt double forgot to take the step forward and ended up hitting Epper with the frame instead of the painting and cracked her skull opened.
Grandmother of Christopher Epper.

Personal Quotes (1)

[Regarding Lynda Carter on the Wonder Woman (1975) series] She was extremely bright. There were times when she was right about certain scenes when a director wanted to do something that she felt wasn't characteristic of her part as "Wonder Woman". She would stand up for herself, and she was right. Then, they would call her a bitch, and maybe she was a bitch in that area, but she was correct in what she was saying about her character. To me, she was the only really live person that could have ever portrayed "Wonder Woman" and pulled it off the way she did.
