ONE37pm: Thanks for chatting with us Eris! How has the last season of This Is Us been?

Baker: It’s been great! I love it so much. I got the part when I was very young, and growing up with it has helped me so much. I’ve been learning as I go.

ONE37pm: How does your role on this show compare to others you’ve done?

Baker: Compared to the other roles, those were more fun scripts and a lot of improv. With This Is Us—it’s an NBC drama compared to let’s just say Disney Channel with KC Undercover. Getting into the character of Tess has been so much fun!

ONE37pm: You are also a fashionista. Could you tell us more about that?

Baker: I’m honestly still in the process of finding my own style. I’ve been playing with different clothes, and when it comes to fashion, I express myself through clothes, and my style changes according to the kind of mood I’m in.

ONE37pm: How about your natural hair journey? Any advice for others on the natural hair journey?

Baker: I’ve learned a ton about my natural hair over the past couple of years, and I’ve gotten a lot of confidence with my natural hair. It’s a journey, and my advice would be to love yourself and your hair and learn more about it in its natural state.

And so are we. You can keep up with Eris via Instagram and Twitter.
