Epper died on Sunday at the age of 83. She performed stunts in the 1970s Wonder Woman TV series and films like The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Kill Bill: Vol. 2.

“I have a lot to say about Jeannie Epper. Most of all, I loved her. I always felt that we understood and appreciated one another,” Carter wrote in a message posted on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. “After all, it was the 70s. We were united in the way that women had to be in order to thrive in a man’s world, through mutual respect, intellect and collaboration.”

Carter continued, “Jeannie was a vanguard who paved the way for all other stuntwomen who came after. Just as Diana was Wonder Woman, Jeannie Epper was also a Wonder Woman. She is so beautiful to me. Jeannie, I will miss you.”

The Wonder Woman star shared a photo in costume alongside Epper, remembering their time on the TV series set.

Epper was a founding member in 1968 of the Stuntwomen’s Association of Motion Pictures, Epper’s more than 150 film credits also included Catch Me If You Can, Romancing the Stone, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Princess Diaries. She was spotlighted in Double Dare, Amanda Micheli’s 2004 documentary about stuntwomen.

She became president of the Stuntwomen’s Association of Motion Pictures in 1999 and remained an honorary member. She received a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007 from the Taurus World Stunt Awards, the first woman to be selected for the honor.
