Danica McKellar, is an American actress better known for her job as Winnie Cooper in the television show, The Wonder Years.

Born in San Diego, California, McKellar and sister Crystal McKellar have mantained a friendly competition to see who gets more acting jobs, and, as a matter of a fact, when the actress who would play Winnie had to be chosen, the only two actresses who were still in competition were the McKellar sisters.
