Lindsay Wagner, yes- The Bionic Woman herself!, has joined the faculty of San Bernardino Valley College as an 'Acting and Directing for Television and Film' Professor.

On the first day of San Bernardino Valley College’s RTVF-134 Acting and Directing for Television and Film class, the classroom was full of students asking about the syllabus, pleading for an ‘add code’ so they can enroll in the class, and listening to the professor talk about what to expect in the upcoming semester.

Little did most students know that before they were even born, the professor now standing in front of them by the name of Professor Wagner was saving the world as a secret agent on television each week as the star of the 1970s television series, The Bionic Woman.

For the fall 2013 semester, students in RTVF-134 and RTVF-240 (Acting & Directing for Television and Film and Motion Picture Production, respectively) will be learning from Emmy Award-winning actress and new SBVC adjunct faculty member, Lindsay Wagner (see bio).

Wagner’s pathway to San Bernardino Valley College came through a mutual friend of SBVC Professor and Radio/TV/Film Faculty, Dr. Diane Dusick. When Dusick learned that the Emmy Award-winning actress was living within the service area of San Bernardino Valley College but driving all the way to L.A. to teach acting, she approached Wagner about the opportunity. Dusick and Wagner first met years earlier when Dusick was in the news business and produced an interview with her.

“Diane was delightful and tenacious in her efforts and the drive to L.A. was too hard and was taking the fun out of teaching,” said Wagner.
