Jamie-Lynn Sigler

As close watchers of "The Sopranos" know, Jamie’s weight fluctuated dramatically between the first and second seasons. What many do not know is that the young star was in the throes of recovering from a life-threatening eating disorder, brought on by self-imposed pressures of performing, exercising, school, and work responsibilities—as well as the loss of friends and family members and a devastating breakup with a boyfriend. Viewers saw Jamie, as Meadow, immediately after she had confronted her eating disorder. She had lost thirty pounds in the few months between shooting the pilot and the first season.   She is currently a spokesperson for National Eating Disorders Association. Jamie-Lynn is currently starring on television, in films and on Broadway.  She also has written a book entitled "Wise Girl" which chronicles her struggles with her eating disorder.
