Glitter Magazine recently sat down with Cierra to talk about the upcoming season of The Fosters. Continue reading to find out more!
CIERRA: Well, she’s still fifteen and making mistakes although she has learned from her past mistakes.
GLITTER: Is there something you’d like to see happen with your character?
CIERRA: I would like to see Mariana get a new “best” friend.
GLITTER: Was Mariana the first character you auditioned for?
CIERRA: Yes, I actually put myself on tape and booked it from that.
GLITTER: What made you want to audition for the show?
CIERRA: The unique composition of the families and some of the issues it raised. I thought it was time for a show like The Fosters to be on television.
GLITTER: The show covers a lot of aspects many people face today such as family relations, discovering who you are, relationships, and troubles some teens may face. What advice do you have to those dealing with similar situations and trying to overcome them?
CIERRA: Stay true to who you are. No matter what you do, someone will always have an opinion, so always do what makes YOU happy, not necessarily what everyone wants you to.
GLITTER: In the show, your character is a twin to Jesus played by Jake T. Austin. If you had a twin sister, would you ever switch places with each other to fool others?
CIERRA: Are you kidding? Of course I would. I already have. My sister and I aren’t twins, but everyone asks if we are because we look a lot alike. One time, in sixth grade, my best friend Jayah and I, who strangely favor each other, switched classes for a day and none of our teachers found out!
GLITTER: What can fans expect to see next in the upcoming episodes?
CIERRA: Lots of drama, emotional moments and cliff hangers that will leave you wanting more.
GLITTER: You also love to sing. Do you plan on releasing an album?
CIERRA: Yes and hopefully soon. I’ve just been so busy filming The Fosters, but I’ll soon be focusing on music during hiatus.
GLITTER: What kind of music do you enjoy listening too?
CIERRA: Right now I’m really into Flume and Disclosure, but my music tastes varies on my mood. It can range from Led Zeppelin to Brad Paisley and everything in between.
GLITTER: How will you be spending your summer this year?
CIERRA: I’m going back to Texas for a month (my grandparents are having a 50th anniversary celebration) and just hang out with family and friends. I’ll also be working on music!
GLITTER: Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt?
CIERRA: Ice Cream for sure!!! My favorite would have to be Half Baked or Phish Food from Ben & Jerry’s!
