Maia Luisa Brewton (born September 30, 1977) is an American former child actress who enjoyed success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She is best known for her role as the Mighty Thor-obsessed child Sara Anderson in the 1987 film Adventures in Babysitting, and as Shelly the antagonistic sister of the title character on the early Fox Network show Parker Lewis Can't Lose from 1990 to 1993.
In 1985, she appeared in Back to the Future as Sally Baines, the younger sister of Marty McFly's mother Lorraine Baines.
