On the NBC show, the former 'Smallville' actress plays a psychologically damaged woman who believes she is truly the superheroine.
While Adrianne Palicki's Wonder Woman never had a chance to grace small screen, Erica Durance will be seen dressing up as the superheroine on "Harry's Law". The Lois Lane of "Smallville" will put on the costume, which is akin to the one worn by Palicki on David E. Kelley's "Wonder Woman" pilot, when she guest stars on the legal drama series.
In the Wednesday, January 11 episode of the NBC show, Durance will appear as Annie Billson, a psychologically disturbed woman who believes that she is actually the famed vigilante. Her character turns to Adam (Nate Corddry) for help after she is charged with a crime.
"What ends up happening is that my character, Annie Billson, has gone one step too far, or some would say many steps too far, and taken this psychosis, this vigilantism a little far in the opinion of society and she's hurt one too many people, and so she's actually been charged with a crime," the brunette beauty explains. "She goes to see Adam, whom she has a history with and has gone to high school with. He knows her, so she seeks his representation."
Durance goes on sharing that her stint on "Harry's Law" is the best way to play Wonder Woman. "Because you get to have a little bit of freedom and you're not judged quite so harshly," she argues. "The way that I was able to work with the character Wonder Woman in this is through the eyes of a woman who desperately needed a strong female archetype to look up to, and she had gone through such terrible things and this was her alter ego."
