Mara Wilson was born on 24th July 1987 in Burbank, California. She is a former child actress, playwright, stage actress, and writer from the US. Mara’s net worth currently stands at a cool $500 thousand.
She is well known for her depictions of Nattie Hillard in Mrs. Doubtfire and Matilda Wormwood in Matilda. Mara graduated from the Idyllwild Arts Academy and went on to attend the Tisch School for Arts at New York University. The interesting thing about her is that Mara wanted to be an actress from a very young age. She had her wish fulfilled as she started acting when she was in her first grade. Her debut was the film Mrs. Doubtfire, where she performed with Robin Williams and Sally Field.
After her debut, more film and television roles came her way. She worked in Miracle on the 34th Street, Balloon Farm, A Simple Wish, Thomas and the Magic Railroad, Melrose Place, Batman Beyond, A Time to Heal and Pearl. Later in her career, Mara decided that she should stop acting for some time and concentrate on other things in life. She said that she was not interested in the movies as she was not having fun. Instead, she preferred stage acting.
At the 67th Academy Awards, she sang “Make ‘Em Laugh” with Kathy Najimy and Tim Curry. In January 2012, she was seen in one episode of the web series called Missed Connection where she depicted the character of Bitty. In 2012, she made special appearances on Internet review shows for That Guy with the Glasses. She now writes for Publicolor. She has three elder brothers and a younger sister. When she was filming Matilda, her mother died of breast cancer. So the movie was dedicated to her mother.
