Ciara Renee Gets Real About Portraying A Superhero of Color on 'Legends'

Ciara Renee embraces her beautiful natural look in the September 2016 issue of NKD mag.

The 25-year-old former Legends of Tomorrow actress dished on her Broadway beginnings and the transition to television. Check it:

On her first Broadway experience: “It was super eye-opening, but I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t know how to pace myself for the endurance of doing eight shows a week and singing as high as I possibly could and everything that comes with that. I didn’t know how to do a real, big Broadway tech with all these crazy props and dressers and stuff like that.”

On perseverance: “A lot of my life has been learning trial by fire. I just get thrown into the pan and I have to figure out how to get out or not get burnt. I think that that’s good. I’ve learned a lot so quickly because I had to, and I think that’s a big reason why I’ve had so much success, because I just had to learn how to buck up and get where I was going.”

On portraying a superhero on TV: “I think as a woman of color, we are role models in a really, really important way, because there isn’t enough representation. When you do see someone like us on TV, playing a superhero no less, I think it’s very important that we show that A, these women have agency, and B, that they;re skilled in whatever they’re supposed to be doing.”
