CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: Episode 36 with Mara Wilson


Mara Wilson is an author, a playwright and former child actress.

I’ve been a fan of Mara Wilson since I was 7 years old. She is the star of my favourite film from when I was little, the 1996 film “Matilda” based on the book by Roald Dahl. She’s also known for her roles in Mrs. Doubtfire and the 1994 remake of Miracle on 34th Street.

I caught up her with her to talk about her new book called “Where Am I Now? True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame.”

I loved this conversation – Mara is one of my favourite people to follow online and on Twitter and I’ve loved reading her writing on her blog and her musings on life. We talk about her new book, growing up in an environment with older actors and what she’s up to at the moment.
