Check out Xochitl Gomez’s fun facts below…

  • I’m an only child, but I have tons of cousins. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a sibling, but it’s pretty cool to have all the family focus, especially during the holidays. Hahah!
  • I’ve been in improv classes since I was about 8 years old. I love doing improv because you get to work with others and make funny sketches. It really helps you think on your feet get comfortable being spontaneous.
  • I learned to skateboard while filming Season 1 of The Baby-Sitters Club in Canada. Vancouver has the best and cleanest skate parks and even free classes on the weekends.
  • Costume designer Cynthia Summers created the new and updated look for my character Dawn in The Baby-Sitters Club. She was inspired by a combination of urban looks she pieced together to create a signature style.
  • I love artichokes and raccoons. I even have raccoon themed wallpaper in my room.

  • I work out every day. I do exercises from videos I find online. I like to try new ones every week or so to keep it fresh. Someday I’d like to get a treadmill for my room.
  • Lately, I’ve been into watching TV shows from the ’80s and ’90s, and my favorites so far are Friends, Beverly Hills 90210, Freaks and Geeks, The Wonder Years and Seinfeld.
  • So far, I’ve got 81 original “Baby-Sitters Club” novels. I’ve been catching up reading them during the time we’ve been staying at home. I love imagining how each book might be made into a show and what they might change to update it.
  • I started acting when I was 5 years old. My first role was in the musical Beauty and the Beast, and I was dressed in a furry horse costume for the whole show, and my only lines were making weird horse noises. Hahah!
  • I just recently got my ears pierced after we wrapped Season 1. If there’s a Season 2, we may see Dawn with earrings. Yay!
