Though we all fell in love with her on the show, it isn’t the last that Madelina has done. She has easily transitioned from a child star to a full-blown actress and has been consistent in taking up great roles. Some of her recent works include Royal Pains, Heros, Til There Was You, among others.

The three sisters are American but they are of Polish, Italian, German, and Irish descent. Not much is known about Madeline’s education except that she had her high school education at Burbank High School in Califonia.

2. She Started Acting When She Was Two Years Old

Madeline began acting when she was only a two-year-old lassie. Her first TV work was in a TV commercial for Downy fabric softener, this planted the seed for what would become a blossoming acting career. With no much obstacle on her way, Madeline landed the role of Grace Sheffield on the CBS sitcom The Nanny. After the filming of the show’s entire six seasons, her next role was in the comedy-drama series, Californication in which she played Mia Lewis, a sexually precocious and conniving 16-year-old. Her performance as Gretchen Berg on the NBC series Heros from 2009 to 2010 further increased her glowing star status in the film industry. In the show which was a substantial hit show, she played Claire Bennet’s weird bisexual roommate and love interest.

Zima has cemented the fact that she is a talented Hollywood star in films like The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, Dimples, Looking For Sunday, and Pretty Little Devils. She made a substantial impression with her performance in Once In a Blue Moon,  Cinderella Storyand The Collector.

Beyond playing major roles, Madeline has guest-starred on different TV shows such as Law & Order, Touched by an Angel and JAG. She also made a brief appearance in The Vampire Diaries. Her appearance as Tracey Barberato in Twin Peaks’ revival is also remarkable. Zima has more upcoming projects under her belt and of course, she is ready to give it her best as always.

3. Husband or Boyfriend, Is Zima Married or Dating?

If you are a fan of Madeline Zima, you sure know she is a very private person. So, it is not surprising that the beautiful girl with passionate eyes has never said anything about who she is dating. As such, nobody knows whether she has that someone special in her life. She could even be married without anybody’s knowledge.

Her hush-hush lifestyle has however not protected her from being a subject of rumor mongers. There has been a flurry of rumors in the past about her sexual orientation especially for kissing a girl in Californication. She opened up that it was her second kiss and that her first was with Selma Blair. We can only assume that she wants this aspect of her life to remain private until she is ready to share it with the world.

4. Madeline’s Net Worth and Awards

Lady Zima has been having a stint with the Tv since her childhood, so it is compensating that she has piled up enough wealth to make up for her childhood fun which was stolen from her quite early. Thus far, she has been able to amass a whopping $1.5 million net worth.

Madeline has received various awards for her exceptional acting skills. She was bestowed with the Young Artist Awards under the Best Young Actress Under Ten category in 1993 for her role in The Hand That Rocks the Cradle. The following year, she again received the award for The Best Youth Actress Leading Role and for Outstanding Youth Ensemble in a TV series, both were for her role in The Nanny. The show also won her more awards in 1995, 1996, and 1998.

5. Body Measurement

Madelina Zima has an elegant figure. She was voted as the 64th sexiest woman in the world by FHM and fifth in the magazine’s online feature. She stands at a height of 5 feet 8 inches and weighs 60 kg which paints a picture of a woman with a cute slim form. This beauty wears bra size 34B and US size 8 shoe. With body measurements of 36-24-36 inches, the actress with dark brunette tresses and hazel eyes fits in US size 6 dress.

Madeline Zima is active on different social media platforms. She has 6k followers on Facebook with over 9.9k on Instagram. On Twitter, she has 0.8k followers. These numbers aren’t very high and it’s probably because of the fact that she hardly shares things concerning her private life online.
