I've always had (and continue to have) a huge crush on Lainie Kazan.
(She played the mother in My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding, but she is mainly known as a singer.)

I got two words for ya: Grandma Shark! (30 seconds in)

I have to give thanks to my 1 1/2 year old grandson for helping me find my new favorite toddler video!

The great white north, eh?
Back in the late 80's I used to watch "Head of the Class", in some part because it had one of the few visibly fat younger actors I'd seen: Dan Schneider

I seem to recall that he slimmed down some in later seasons, and it looks like since then he's worked more in writing and producing than acting. But it was still the first time that I'd seen a (at least somewhat) fat regular character who wasn't 'parent age.' Really I'd not call him more than chubby, but by Hollywood standards that was certainly 'fat.'
