Danica was always a good student and despite of her early acting career, she never compromised with her studies. Danica and her sister, Crystal, were both child actors who went on to achieve something bigger in terms of academia in their lives. While Crystal became a corporate lawyer, Danica left acting between 1993 and 1998, and went on to get a PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles. So apart from being an actress, Danica has also proved herself as a good mathematician and a recognized author. As a matter of fact, she has a mathematical theorem named after her and her associates which is recognized as the Charles-McKellar-Winn Theorem. Later, she authored a New York Times best-selling book, “Math Doesn’t Suck: How to Survive Middle-School Math Without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail” and a string of other books. Since then, she has managed to get a hold of both her careers and has excelled in both of them.

In her acting career, other than the six years long-running TV series “The Wonder Years”, which earned Danica a Young Artist Award, she has been involved in a string of TV shows over the last 20 years, such as “Working”, “How I Met Your Mother”, “Game Over”, “Static Shock” and so on. The Hollywood movies that she has been a part of include “Sidekicks”, “Good Neighbor”, “Raising Genius”, “Mancation” etc.

Peeking into her personal life, Danica has been married twice and mothers a son. Previously married to composer Mike Verta(2009-13), Danica married her then boyfriend Scott Sveslosky in 2014. As of now, this forty year old actress lives her fabulous life with her husband and son in Los Angeles, California.

Danica’s net worth renders her every little requirement to live a lavishing and celebrated life. This actress for whom academia and knowledge comes first and then other things, has been noted for making time to enjoy every little thing in life, which includes her hobbies of ballroom dancing and yoga.

Quotes

#Quote
1When I originally entered UCLA, I had planned to go for a film major, but I kept finding myself taking math classes for fun, 'cause I missed them from high school!
2My main concern with the condition of mathematics in high school is that there's a lot of fear involved! Math is not, generally speaking, presented in a fun way. The concepts, as I see them, ARE fun, and that's the way I'd like to convey them myself.
3I learned my French through school. I was lucky in that the tutor on The Wonder Years (1988) set spoke fluent French.
