'Raven's Home' Star Navia Robinson Loves All Animals -- Well, Most of Them (Exclusive)

'Raven's Home' Star Navia Robinson Loves All Animals -- Well, Most of Them (Exclusive)

Nia Baxter-Carter might just be the coolest girl on Disney Channel.

The Raven’s Home character is “fiercely independent, smart and dependable” — three qualities that we love, and her portrayer Navia Robinson is just like that too.

JJJ caught up with Navia in a cool rapid fire interview and got to know her even better than we thought we would.

First things first — she loves all animals…well, most of them anyhow.

“I love most animals, but I’m extremely afraid of snakes and spiders,” she tells us.

However, if she could be any animal on the planet, she’d be a cheetah.

“They are extremely swift, keen and powerful and are considered the ‘queen’ of the jungle!” Navia says.

(Anyone else catch this Cheetah Girl reference/nod to Raven Symone? Yea, we did too)
