Child star-turned-author and newly out Mara Wilson coming to Town Hall

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

MARA WILSON
TOWN HALL
September 21


She was the cutest little thing in Mrs. Doubtfire. A sweet, bright-eyed and whispery-voiced girl who tugged at our heartstrings, as the youngest of three children experiencing the trials and aftermath of a family divorce. In the 1996 film Matilda, she charmed us again with a performance of an eight year-old that uses special powers to teach those around her a lesson.

That little girl is all grown up now. Mara Wilson, who starred in both movies opposite marquee actors - Robin Williams, Sally Field, Danny DeVito - is 28 years-old and the author of a new book, Where Am I Now?: True Stories of Girlhood and Accidental Fame. Having completed her studies at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Wilson turned her talents from acting into writing and storytelling. When she isn't penning guest columns for the Daily Beast and Jezebel, she's performing her own one-woman show, What Are You Afraid Of?, on a small stage in New York. But she isn't completely done with acting, set to appear in upcoming episodes of 'Broad City' and 'BoJack Horseman.'

Recently, Wilson outed herself as Bisexual shortly after the Orlando tragedy in a series of Twitter posts. One of her messages stated 'I said I *used* to identify as mostly straight. I've embraced the Bi/Queer label lately' and also posted a photo of herself in front of a Gay bar.

Her book is said to detail her early days as a child star, losing her mother at a young age to cancer, her bumpy journey into womanhood and her humorous, relatable struggles with self-acceptance. To promote it, Wilson is embarking on a book tour that delivers her to Town Hall on September 21 (@ 7:30pm). Tickets, priced at $5, are on sale now for Town Hall members and will soon be available to the general public. For more information, go to townhallseattle.org.

Seattle Gay News is hoping to interview Mara Wilson ahead of her appearance. Stay glued.
