'Where Am I Now?' Mara Wilson Explains What Happened When Matilda Grew Up
Mara Wilson says that the most complicated relationship she's ever had is with a fictional, 6-year-old girl. That's because you probably know Wilson best as Matilda, from the 1996 film adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic. "I wanted to be her so badly ..." Wilson tells NPR's Rachel Martin. "She's kind of like my big sister over shadowing me." Wilson was a successful child actress — you may also recognize her from her starring roles as Natalie Hillard in Mrs. Doubtfire, or as Susan Walker in Miracle on 34th Street.
