British actress Lucy Davis, who was spotted on the set of Wonder Woman, as she shared a scene with Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), is another of the actors who was officially announced in the film’s official press release, whose role wasn’t disclosed.
Now with the latest behind the scene photos of Davis in full costume, heavy speculations on whom she could be playing has started and the main name to be dropped is the character of Etta Candy.
Etta Candy was first introduced in the Golden Age Wonder Woman comics issue #2, back in 1942 as Wonder Woman’s best friend, who has an infinity for eating candy. Etta since then has appeared in different forms over the years in the comics, as well as in the Wonder Woman television series with Lynda Carter in the 70’s during its first season, as General Phil Blankenship’s secretary.
Though looking at Davis’s appearance from the set photos, she looks much more inline with Etta Candy from the Golden age series, down to the red curly hair. Then when it comes to personality, Davis is the perfect type of actress for the role, as the character in her original run was comedic relief and Davis is a known comedic actress as seen in Shaun Of The Dead and The Office.
