On My Block's Sierra Capri Reveals How She Booked The Role of Monse

Sierra Capri is probably one of your favorite new stars, and she definitely should be!

The 20-year-old actress stars as Monse in Netflix’s On My Block, and she owes it all to another really kind actress who helped her out.

“I was actually an extra in the movie, Hidden Figures,” Sierra told Hidden Remote about one of her first acting projects. “One of the cast members was giving a seminar which would become the place that I met someone who would help me film my self-tape that I submitted for On My Block.”

Sierra adds that she “definitely owes a lot to that woman. Her name is Deja Dee and until this day she is a mentor of mine. I’m really grateful for her.”

Starring as an extra in Hidden Figures was also a big experience for her.

“That as a very unique experience as well. Everyone was so sweet, Taraji P. Henson, she was one of the sweetest people I have ever met on a set that I wasn’t really part of,” Sierra says.

“It was great, I enjoyed meeting so many people and everything that came with being there for hours. It’s what you love, if you love what you do then it doesn’t feel like work. It was definitely fun.”

On My Block is streaming on Netflix now.
