Wagner not nuts for new ‘Bionic Woman’
Lindsay Wagner, who won an Emmy in the late 1970s for her portrayal of Jamie Sommers in “The Bionic Woman,” says she has seen the new NBC version, starring Michelle Ryan, and wasn’t crazy about it. “It’s very different,” she says. “It’s very much like what the shows are today, kind of dark and broody and violent – what people seem to be getting off on these days. So, it’s not at all what we were doing. We were doing a show for kids intentionally and making it fun and make it in such a way that adults could enjoy it, too, with their children.” Wagner originated the role of Sommers on “The Six Million Dollar Man” in 1975 and played it for three seasons on her own show. She later reprised the role in television movies in 1987, 1989 and 1994.
