Those shin-grazing skirts. That porcelain skin. That sticker-covered binder. We knew precisely why Kevin Arnold longed for the shy, studious Winnie, a character based on McKellar’s real-life persona. After taking a break from acting to study math at UCLA (she has a theorem named after her), McKellar landed a recurring role on The West Wing and is now starring in Lifetime’s Inspector Mom. Her inner geek remains intact: She’s publishing a book, Math Doesn’t Suck, aimed at making long division more alluring.
