We caught up with the New Orleans native to discuss her exciting new role as Lilly Winthrop and her start in acting! I am from New Orleans, Louisiana. I got involved in acting at a really young age. I grew up in New Orleans so I was apart of a really artistic, cultural town. Expressing yourself was always encouraged whether it was through music, cuisine, poetry, I grew up around a lot of artists. I went to a public school that was immersed in art programs. I just gravitated towards it early on because it was around me.

It was a hot Friday morning in a vacant lot on Hollygrove Street. A circular saw whined from time to time. Hammers pounded nails. The kids joked and laughed.
Ciera grew up surrounded by street performers, artists, scholars and the amazing cuisine that only the vibrant city of New Orleans could offer. This eclectic environment allowed her to embrace every form of creativity and shaped her to become a creative powerhouse. During this time, she landed her first film, not only as female lead, but opposite Steven Seagal in the action-thriller Flight of Fury.
