From appearing in one of Netflix’s most successful global film franchises to date, to bringing charming and heartfelt characters to life on screen, actress on the rise Momona Tamada has quickly become “one to watch” in the entertainment industry this year.

In 2020 Momona can be seen starring in Netflix’s highly anticipated series “The Baby-Sitters Club.” Based on Ann M.
