After nearly 20 years apart, Mayim Bialik has reunited with her childhood costar from Beaches – and it turns out the two still have a lot in common.
Bialik and Marcie Leeds played the 11-year-old versions of Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey’s characters, respectively, in the 1988 classic. Reuniting for the first time since the film, the now grownup ladies decided to reenact their iconic opening scene.
Shortly after Beaches, Leeds decided to leave show business and is now a practicing surgeon (with a very interesting former patient). And while Bialik continued her acting career – appearing in numerous movies and TV shows including the Big Bang Theory – she also has a love for science and a degree in neuroscience.
