Apart from people like Will Smith, Jennifer Lawrence, Daniel Radcliffe, Aaron Paul, Reese Witherspoon, and a few others, there aren’t many actors who reveled in the euphoria of becoming famous with their first few movies. Although not completely there, Sierra Capri is yet another who arguably enjoys the luxury.
A professional model, TV star, and Oscar-nominated actress, Capri first caught the eyes of the world following her performance in the famous Netflix series On My Block as Monse Finnie. Before then, she appeared as a guest in the 2016 movie Hidden Figures.
Who is Sierra Capri? Bio and Age
As stated, Sierra Capri is an actress and model. She was born on the 11th of September, 1998 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. It was also there that she spent the first years of her early childhood.
Capri started her elementary education at Hillcrest Elementary School in Catonsville, Maryland, before moving to Georgia with her mom where she began her modeling career. She later went to Armstrong State University in Savannah, Georgia where she majored in biology. However, Sierra only spent her junior years there.
While growing up, one of the things that always remained on her mind was the desire to act, hence it is not surprising that she has now moved to Los Angeles, California to fulfill her acting dream.
Her acting career began when she was cast for a role in the Oscar-nominated movie Hidden Figures in 2016. Sierra Capri’s next gig as an actress came in 2018 when she featured in the popular Netflix series On My Block as Monse Finnie, alongside Ronni Hawk, Jason Geano, and Brett Gray. It was her performance in the series that has made her relatively famous.
Nonetheless, she has the hopes of going back to school as she revealed that she has assured her mom of doing just that. The Atlanta-bred actress left college when she was in her final year after she got her role in On My Block.
Parents and Family
Sierra Capri was solely raised by her mother Felicia Guyton who is an activist and a philanthropist. It has been revealed that her father and mother got divorced when she was still little- that explains why she was raised by her mom single-handedly since the age of 12.
Her main interest in the arts and performance came from her parents being that her mother was a dancer while her father was a musician. That said, although Sierra’s parents are not together, her father still remains in her life. According to her, both her father and mother have remained her greatest supporters in her young career.
Sierra Capri is not yet married and there is no record that she has dated anyone in the past. There are, however, speculations that she may be dating her fellow co-star Diego Tinoco. They were spotted together on the orange carpet during the 2018 Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Awards in Inglewood, California on March 24th, 2018. Still, neither of them has come out to say anything about the speculations.
Even though the Oscar-nominated actress has gained her fair share of fame, she has not handled many gigs whether as an actress or model for one to assume that she has already amassed a great fortune.
Nonetheless, the actress may not be doing badly after all as she has a net worth that is estimated at $600,000. She is said to take home between $8, 000 to $11, 000 as salary for her role in the Netflix series On My Block.
Apart from just making money, Capri is also involved in charity, most especially those concerning children such as the CHLA center.
There is no denying the fact that Sierra Capri is a very beautiful woman. In fact, that could just be one of the things that have helped her to launch her career as a model.
That said, she is not the tallest woman that one would find, standing at a height of 5 feet 6 inches (1.68m) tall. With a slim build, she has a body weight of 110 lbs (48 kg). Sierra wears shoe size 7 (US), dress size 6 (US), and bra size 31C.
