Lucy Davis Talks Etta Candy In 'Wonder Woman'
"She’s a woman in a man’s world and so being heard and seen aren’t the easiest things, but it kind of doesn’t deter her," says actor Lucy Davis of her role as sidekick Etta Candy in the upcoming Wonder Woman film.
"Etta is unapologetically herself," says Davis, "and I think that that’s the thing that has drawn me to her the most,”
Davis, known for her role as receptionist and love interest Dawn Tinsley in the original version of The Office, admits that “it took quite a while in my life to be unapologetically myself.”

It wasn’t just her connection to Etta’s independence that led the actress to play the role.
In fact, taking the job was a full-circle moment for the star, since Davis has been a fan of the classic female superhero since she was a little girl.
“I was obsessed with Lynda Carter in Wonder Woman and I was obsessed with Dynasty.
If I was play acting on a weekend, I might dress up like Joan Collins,” she recalled.
