Recently Netflix introduced Malia Baker to the world as their casting choice to play the beloved character, Mary Anne Spier, in the streamer’s highly anticipated remake of The Baby-Sitters Club. The big reveal of the five young actors selected to play the iconic baby-sitters doubled as an introduction to a new talent. Baker, African-born & Canadian-raised, had only begun acting classes one year prior to winning her series regular role through Netflix’s North American-wide search. Only one year in the business and yet she’d already performed in several theatrical productions and appeared in the ABC’s A Million Little Things, CW’s The Flash, as well as Hallmark’s TV movie, Hope at Christmas.
