Wonder Years legend looks unrecognisable in bikini 35 years after legendary US sitcom | The Sun

WONDER Years legend Danica McKellar looked unrecognisable as she posed in a leopard bikini 35 years after finding fame on US sitcom.

The actress, 48, stunned in the two-piece swimwear during a getaway to Costa Rica with her family.

Danica – who played girl next door Winnie Cooper on the hit programme – showed off her toned figure and ageless looks as she posed near a waterfall.

She captioned the post: "Costa Rica photo dump!! My family and I had a wonderful time and many adventures! 

"Swimming, snorkelling, waterfalls, horseback rides, rainforest walks (that tree frog looks like a National Geographic – but that was taken on my phone!), and more.'

"And that very last shot at the waterfall?

"Shout-out to @glebsavchenkoofficial for teaching me dance arms – if you wanna get better at something, you practice wherever you are!"

She added: "We took some pics & video on my husband's underwater camera so once I get those, there might be a part two.

"Super grateful for the opportunity to make new family memories in a cool new spot, and I'm wishing you a week of making beautiful memories, whether on adventures, or right at home."

Many fans will remember Danica for her role as Winnie on the show.

She was able to dangle the lovestruck Kevin – played by Fred Savage – on a string throughout all six series and teenage girls growing up with the iconic series wanted to be her.

The character in the long-running US show, which kicked off in 1988, was played by Danica from the age of 13.

She even had her first ever kiss on screen with Fred, although they never dated away from the set.

But when the show ended, in 1993, Danica’s life took a bit of an unexpected turn.

Instead of seeking roles in Hollywood, she went to UCLA university and discovered she was a maths genius.

Now, in between the occasional acting role, she writes maths books with titles like Math Doesn’t Suck. Kiss my Math and Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape.

The actress has also hosted online maths tutorials called Math Bites.

She even has her own theorem, and published a paper entitled Percolation and Gibbs States Multiplicity for Ferromagnetic Ashkin-Teller.

Danica, who is married to lawyer Scott Sveslosky and has an eight-year-old son, Draco, from a previous marriage, has quite a following online.
