Let's start with the absolute star of the show, child star Mara Wilson. Wilson was one of the most popular child stars of the '90s. The young acting talent celebrated her international breakthrough with the film. At just eight years old, the young actress became an internationally acclaimed star when she took on the leading role of "Susan Walker" in Miracle On 34th Street.

Many other films soon followed, such as the family film Matilda alongside superstar Danny DeVito. As a child, Mara Wilson was able to land many great roles and initially intended to remain true to acting. But shortly after the turn of the millennium, the child star took a break to catch up on school.
Mara has not appeared in any films since then, but only on stage in a few theater productions. She was also heard in a small guest role for the animated series Bojack Horseman. Her early fame was too much for the actress and so in 2013 she decided to turn her back on acting and, these days, she prefers to work as a writer and screenwriter.
