In our Q&A series Last Call, we get down to the bottom of every last thing with some of our favorite celebs — from the last time they were starstruck to the last song they listened to. This week, Sierra Capri takes our call.
The fourth and final season of On My Block is finally out, and we can’t help but get emotional that the show has come to an end. While we’re all very much in our feelings about saying goodbye to the cast, Sierra Capri is finding peace in this “bittersweet” farewell and staying optimistic about what the future holds for her. Over the past four seasons, we’ve gotten to know the 23-year-old star’s strong and resilient character, Monse Finnie. Just like the other teens portrayed on the show, Sierra’s character has evolved and matured in ways that have turned her into the voice of reason for her close-knit crew after their huge falling out on season three.
According to Sierra, the most rewarding part about her character’s role on the show has been her evolution, which plays a major part in the thrilling events that unfold during the final season. “I really enjoy playing to her strengths and inspiring little girls just to be strong and to stand in their power,” she told POPSUGAR. “It’s OK to be independent and to do your own thing for a while. It’s even OK to go off to boarding school if you need to clear your head before you come back and deal with the craziness around you. So I’m very happy that our show demonstrates women empowerment and feminism very well. I feel like we touched on all of that through her character.”
Though Sierra is looking forward to the future, like us, she’s also sad to see On My Block end. “I feel like it’s bittersweet because, of course, I’m going to mostly miss working with the amazing cast and crew that we have,” she said. “Those are truly my family members. We’ve all got to see each other grow up and experience things together, like people getting married and people having kids. It’s been actually like going to school all over again. Mostly, I’m just going to miss the love that we had for the show from the fans because I know they have been supporting it since day one and I’m sure they felt some type of way about it being the last season.” So before you begin your binge-fest of On My Block’s final season, check out the rest of Sierra’s Last Call interview ahead.
