One Of The Baby-Sitters Club Characters Has Been Recast

Did you notice the swap?


The Baby-Sitters Club returned to our screens this month with a super fun second season.

However, if you’ve watched it already, you might have noticed that some of the group looks a little different.

If you’re thinking that Dawn Schafer looks totally different, it’s because the character is now being played by a different actress.

The character was played by Xochitl Gomez in season 1, but in season two, she’s played by Kyndra Sanchez.

This isn’t because of any bad feelings or issues with Xochitl, and it’s actually for a pretty exciting reason instead.

Xochitl has been cast in a super exciting Marvel project, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. In the movie, she’ll play America Chavez, a young gay super heroine.

Pretty exciting right?

Speaking about giving up her TV role, she told Entertainment Tonight: “I felt really sad, but I knew that, just because of Covid, I couldn’t be at one place and then another and then have to just switch all the time.”
