Don't fuck with Mara Wilson!

Mara Elizabeth Wilson (born July 24, 1987) is a former child actress who was in several films in The '90s (best known as the title character in the feature film adaptation of Roald Dahl's Matilda), but decided to leave when she realized "film acting is not very fun", in her own words.

She still works in entertainment, but as a playwright after graduating from NYU. She also writes a blog, "Mara Wilson Writes Stuff", to which she often posts humorous stories and the like. Her Twitter feed is similarly humorous. She's also written for Cracked.

She has also done guest spots on That Guy with the Glasses, revealing that she has unholy powers that she will use to punish those who blindly mock her. According to Linkara, she obtained these powers from God Himself.

She also has a recurring role on Welcome to Night Vale as The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home.

Evidently, she's well aware of the existence of TV Tropes, too, mentioning Artistic License Physics (back when it was known as You Fail Physics Forever) and Cloud Cuckoolander, as well as a tendency to check this page. (Hi, Mara! We're happy you exist!)

In September 2016 she released her first book Where Am I Now?: True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame
