Matilda was one of the cutest kids to feature in a film in the 90s as was her best pal Lavender.

And now the actresses who played them in the 1996 film Matilda have had a mini reunion that's beyond cute.

Kiami Davael, who played Lavender, and Mara Wilson, who had the leading role, met for a lunch date and posted a pic to Twitter.

Mara (27) was a hugely successful child star with roles in Miracle on 34th Street and Mrs Doubtfire as well as Matilda.

Kiami (28) went on to earn a psychology degree.
