Mara Wilson became famous as a child star with her scene stealing performance in the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire" as one of the children of departed comedy legend Robin Williams and her playing of the titular role of the hit movie "Matilda'.
It has been over a decade since she has appeared on the big screen and she made her feelings clear that she will not be acting in the future when she wrote on her blog MaraWilsonWritesStuff.com that "she does not have any plans to pursue film acting because it's not my thing anymore."
Acting may not be her thing but in the view of Penguin Books writing certainly is a something of which she is very talented and proficient. The renowned publisher has signed the ex-actress to write a book of personal essays entitled (K) for Kid. The writing will reveal her thoughts on "being young, female and a little out of place" which revolved around her experiences as the only child on a film set full of adults, the oldest daughter in a house full of boys and being very much a fish out of water as a New Yorker in California and a Californian in New York.
For her fans and some social media entertainment observers it is heartening to see that she has been able to make a decision about her career that makes her happy and not pursue acting as an adult when it seems it did not motivate her as an adult because to be a great actress one must love to act in front of others.
However, while Mara Wilson no longer has a desire to be in front of the camera it seems that as a writer and playwright it is very likely that in the future, actors will be appearing in her works on the big screen in the future.
