Oliva d'Abo or Danica McKellar?


Both were gorgeous during The Wonder Years, and are a mere six years apart in age.
Olivia seemed an odd casting choice for this middle American family, she's really delicately lovely and almost exotic for a blond woman.
Winnie looked like the girl next door but so damn cute !
So which one was prettier, Winnie or Sis?

reply

HS Winnie of course

Cool. I just remember thinking d'Abo was not featured much but seemed almost like an exchange student, she was so much prettier than the rest of the cast and family. Winnie had a prominent role as a potential romantic partner, and hey, DMcK is beautiful.
What I forget to include in the OP is how different the two are in appearance. At the time I thought D'abo's face was a wonder of sculpture and design, cheekbones, luminous eyes, alluring mouth. But Danica, keeping in mind she was a child, just naturally had such a pleasant visage.

Becky Slater. Danica’s younger sister was a hottie. Kevin was a fool for dumping her.

Olivia d'Abo stole my heart after seeing her in Conant the Destroyer and Bolero

I just remember seeing her in WYs and thinking if she was in my high school or lived in my dorm, I'd be very impressed. Like WAAY out of my league, while Winnie seemed like a cute kid I might actually talk with.

And I'm older than both of them !
