It's the classic story of a good girl gone bad. When Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage) first stared longingly at Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar) on The Wonder Years, she was as squeaky-clean as they come. Ten years later, McKellar is back—-in black—to reunite with Savage on this week's Working (NBC, March 13, 9:30 P.M./ET). "I did get a few flashbacks just healing, 'Fred and Danica to the set, " says the 23-year-old, who plays the not-so-wholesome boss's daughter "She's kind of ended up on the wrong side of the tracks, had some run-ins with the police. She isn't really your model citizen." Not surprising though, she's still the object of Savage's affection.
McKellar—who'll graduate summa cum laude from UCLA this June with a
departmental honors degree in mathematics--plans to continue acting, and
she doesn't rule out the possibility of reappearing on Working.
"You never know," she says. "[My part] on The Wonder Years was actually
just supposed to be a guest spot." For now-— when she's not too busy studying—McKellar
will sometimes catch an old Wonder Year's episode on Nick at Nite (weeknights,
9 PM,/BT). "It brings back wonderful childhood memories. It's like having
the best set of home movies possible."
