Nia Baker is an actress and model based in LA. Upon graduating from Sidwell Friends School, USC awarded Nia a full tuition scholarship to pursue her acting endeavors at their School of Dramatic Arts.
Nia's love of acting inspires her to find new ways to practice and improve her craft. At the University of Oxford, Nia immersed herself into classical training and was selected to play the titular role of Hamlet in the final production. Nia also embraced conservatory style training during a five week acting intensive at the Yale School of Drama.
As a senior in high school, Nia acted, directed, and produced a one woman show at a professional theatre in the DC area. This ambitious undertaking required her to raise all necessary funds by herself, through bake sales and other entrepreneurial efforts at her school.
Nia is currently shooting A Black College Show, a web series that she created with her friends at USC film school to highlight underrepresented narratives of black joy and friendship. She is also shooting Starving, a dark-comedy that examines society's obsession with consumer culture. Nia is managed by Elizabeth Wilson at Luber Roklin Entertainment.
