Malia Baker is Our Spring ’21 Cover Girl!

By Andréa Butler

Malia Baker gets down heavy with all the retro things, including reboots. She currently stars in two of them — as Mary Anne Spier in Netflix’s The Baby-Sitters Club, which begins filming Season 2 soon, and as Gabby in Are You Afraid of the Dark? Curse of the Shadows, airing on Nickelodeon now.

In our spring 2021 issue, Malia talks about using her platform to inspire change, how acting has helped her come into her own, and her lightweight obsession with collecting vinyl albums (+ more).
