Mara Wilson was a child actor who rose to fame playing Robin Williams' daughter in the 90s classic Mrs. Doubtfire. That role lead to her being cast by Danny DeVito as the title character in Matilda in 1996. Then, following a few less noteworthy films, Wilson basically retired.
That hasn't stopped Matilda from remaining a cult classic and for Wilson to be essentially defined by the role. The 25-year-old NYU grad makes a rare cameo appearance in a new episode of Nostalgia Chick to discuss Matilda at length.
