Actress Beatrice Colen played Etta Candy, Wonder Woman’s best friend and sidekick. Etta Candy only appears in the first season of Wonder Woman, which is set in the WWII era. After the series was revamped and set in modern times (of the 1970s) the role of Etta Candy was dropped.

Aside from this role, Colen was also known for her role as carhop Marsha Simms on Happy Days. Throughout her career she guest starred in other shows such as The Wonder Years, All in the Family, and Baywatch, finally retiring in 1997. Two years later, she passed away after her battle with lung cancer.
