The Baby-Sitters Club is back on Netflix for a second season and so is its very own Claudia Kishi – rising actress, Momona Tamada! Momona updates asienne on her life during the pandemic, the new projects she’s been working on and her new friend named Miso.
MY #1 HOBBY DURING QUARANTINE:
I did a lot of those TikTok baking trends and trending recipes. That was one of my favorite things to do and what I spent a lot of my time doing.
MY #1 SHOW DURING THE LOCKDOWN:
I actually watched the entire Avatar: The Last Airbender with one of my co-stars, Shay, throughout the entire quarantine. It’s pretty long but it was a good one for sure. I loved it! It was my COVID show.
MY BEST ON-SET EXPERIENCE (SO FAR):
I can’t pick one specific moment but I feel like every single set has a different feel to it. It’s the people that you meet – you’re all just forever friends with them and I think that’s what I cherish most about being on-set is making new friends, meeting new people and working with new faces because it’s just so much fun!
WHAT’S NEW WITH CLAUDIA THIS SEASON:
I would say she definitely has some deeper internal struggles this season. Maybe a bit more compared to last season. We dive a bit deeper into more of her family’s issues and how she deals with this change that happens in her life. I also think she learns from others as well. For example, from Mallory, I think she learns a lot from working with her. As well, as Ashley, who’s the new girl this season and is one of Claudia’s inspirations and as a character, she learns quite a bit from her.
WHAT’S IT LIKE WORKING ON SECRET HEADQUARTERS:
Oh my goodness! That was one of the best experiences ever! I can’t give away too much because it’s pretty new, but it was so fun to dive into it as a character that isn’t familiar to me as much. But it was seriously so much fun!
MY PUPPY’S SECRET TALENT:
Miso’s one. Is that considered a puppy? She’s very much like a human-type dog. She knows when it’s time to go to sleep. I will be downstairs and I’ll walk up to my room and she’s sleeping on my bed with her head on my pillow. She observes these things so when she goes somewhere, she’ll point to a direction with her paw and I think it’s super cute!
The Baby-Sitters Club season two is now streaming on Netflix.
