1. Xochitl makes her MCU debut in ‘Doctor Strange 2.’

Xochitl plays America Chavez in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. America is a young girl who has the ability to jump between the Multiverse. In her quest to reunite with her children, Wanda/Scarlet Witch attempts to take America’s powers. Doctor Strange does everything he can to prevent that from happening. America is a queer Latina who was raised by two mothers. America is the MCU’s first Latina LGBTQ+ character.

2. Xochitl rose to fame on ‘The Baby-Sitters Club.’

Xochitl played Dawn Schafer in the first season of Netflix’s The Baby-Sitters Club. She had to leave the show ahead of its second season after getting her role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. “It was sad that I could only do one season of The Baby-Sitters Club since I obviously wanted to do the second season, but both the show and Doctor Strange were filming at the same time. It was during [peak] COVID, so I couldn’t fly from England to Canada. I was really bummed out,” Xochitl told Seventeen. Prior to Doctor Strange, Xochitl appeared on Raven’s Home, You’re the Worst, and Gentified.

3. Xochitl is experienced in martial arts. 

Xochitl is a fan of martial arts, which she started before The Baby-Sitters Club. While auditioning for Doctor Strange, the actress revealed to Seventeen that she did “kickboxing and stunt tumbling every other day for a couple of hours. It was intense, but I felt like it was necessary because if I got to the next stage, I didn’t wanna do a little and be nervous.”

3. Xochitl has dyslexia. 

The actress revealed she is dyslexic in an interview about how she prepared for her role in Doctor Strange 2. “It’s kind of the same preparation I do for all my auditions. I get the slides and go over them and over them because I have dyslexia, so in order for me to not fumble around, I have to really actually know the material,” she told People Chica.

5. Xochitl is bilingual. 

Xochitl’s dad is from Mexico, and she told People Chica that she “grew up with a lot of Mexican influences because all the kids I played with and my babysitter was from Mexico. My parents speak Spanish at home, so I feel like I’ve lived in both worlds and that has shaped who I am as a person.”
