Nick fans can of course remember her from her role in season one of the limited series Are You Afraid of the Dark?, as well as Netflix’s Rim of the World and Always Be My Maybe, or even her guest arc on American Housewife.

Miya will soon star as Sammy Ko in the upcoming film Marvelous and the Black Hole, which follows a teenage delinquent (Cech) who befriends a surly magician (Rhea Perlman) who helps her navigate her inner demons and dysfunctional family with sleight of hand magic. A coming of age comedy that touches on unlikely friendships, grief, and finding hope in the darkest moments.

Be sure to tune in to catch Miya in a new episode of The Astronauts TONIGHT (November 27) and every Friday at 7pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon!
