In our series of questions and answers Last call, we get to the bottom of it all with some of our favorite celebrities – from the last time they were hit by the star, to the last song they listened to. This week Sierra Capri is taking our call.
The fourth and final season of On my block is finally out, and we can’t help but be moved that the series is over. While we’re all very excited to say goodbye to the cast, Sierra Capri finds peace in this “bittersweet” farewell and remains optimistic about what the future holds. Over the past four seasons, we’ve come to know the strong and resilient character of 23-year-old star Monse Finnie. Much like the other teens portrayed in the show, Sierra’s character evolved and matured in a way that turned her into the voice of reason for her tight-knit team after their huge row in season three.
According to Sierra, the most rewarding part of her character’s role on the show has been her evolution, which plays a major role in the exciting events unfolding over the past season. “I really love playing with her strengths and inspiring little girls just to be strong and stand up,” she told POPSUGAR. “It’s good to be independent and do your own thing for a while. It’s even good to go to boarding school if you need to clear your head before you come back and deal with the madness around you. So I’m very happy that our show demonstrates women’s empowerment and feminism very well. I feel like we approached all of that through her character. “
Although Sierra looks to the future, like us, she is also sad to see On my block to finish. “I feel like it’s bittersweet because, of course, I’m mostly going to miss working with the amazing cast and crew that we have,” she said. “They really are family. We all have to see each other growing up and going through things together, like people getting married and people having kids. It was actually like going back to school. I’m just The love we had for the show from the fans is going to be missed because I know they’ve been supporting it from day one and I’m sure they felt kind of a feeling that it was. the last season. ” So before you start your binge-fest On my block final season, check out the rest of the upcoming Sierra’s Last Call interview.
How was the last day of filming on On My Block?
Emotional, Lord have mercy. We were so everywhere because we had to shoot that day, but also it was a night shoot. It was just bittersweet [but] we celebrated. Fortunately, one of the last scenes we shot was meant to be a celebration, so we got to celebrate while we were shooting that last scene. We all talked to each other and made little mini speeches, and literally none of us cried. i would watch jessica [Marie Garcia] and say, “Don’t look at me because I’m going to start crying.” When it was our turn to talk about whatever we wanted, to give our love to everyone who helped make the show what it is today and who supported us, we didn’t have it all. just couldn’t hold us back. It was a really fun time. I recorded everything and can’t wait for fans to see the season as a whole. I feel like it was definitely one of my favorites.
What’s the last thing you remember on the set?
We were all sitting outside and the person we were staying with, we were in his backyard, and the bigger rat came through his fence behind us, and we all panicked. It was the funniest thing. They were like, “Oh, dammit, no, we’re not sitting here.” It was the biggest rat I have ever seen in my life and I lived on the east coast. My mother is from Jersey, so I saw some, and I didn’t even know they [could] become so big.
What’s the last thing you did with your On My Block co-stars?
We went to see each person and had our moment where we were able to share our favorite memories from the shoot, just to say what we wanted to the cast and crew. It was like that big circle therapy session we did, and I feel like it’s just acting anyway – just a big therapy session. It was fun, sweet and memorable. I’m glad everyone sees this scene too.
Who was the last On My Block co-star you texted?
I feel like I can’t go wrong or that one of them is going to be crazy. I mean Jessica, maybe, cause we have a group thread [and] This is the problem. So we all write to each other on the group feed and talk about what’s going on and what we’re doing or things like that, [but] I think it was Jessica.
What’s the last thing you remember from high school?
Oh my God! Probably excited to go to college [and] get out of the small town where I was. I’m from the city, but I had moved to a small town [back then]. So I think I was just excited to go ahead and go and do my thing. It wasn’t too sad [occasion] apart from me leaving my mother, of course. Otherwise, I was like, two.
What’s the last show you binge-watched on Netflix?
Manifesto. It’s so crazy, but it’s good. I watched the first episode, I was like “OK”. [But] then I watched the second episode, I was like, “Oh, okay!” Yes, I love this show. i love science fiction [and] shows along these lines, so it’s probably one of my favorites right now.
When was the last time you were stunned?
I’m sure there were people after that, but this is the first that comes to mind. It was like two years ago when I met Veronica Falcón from the show Queen of the South. And oh my god, I literally hyperventilated. I was at an event, a gala she was at, and she come and hugged people. I watched [my costar] Jessica and I say, “Oh my God, it’s Veronica Falcón.” I panicked. She is a phenomenal actress and I love this series. She was so sweet, such a sweet woman. I contacted her on Instagram [afterward], being this creep in DM. I was like, “I just wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time.” And she was like, “Honey, you’re so sweet.” And we talked, and I was [just] like, “Wow.”
What’s the last song you listened to?
I mean a song by Dua Lipa. “Levitating”, because I hear it everywhere I go. I was doing a workout, it came on the radio. i was in [an] Uber, it came on the radio. I was at [a] Game, [and] I’m like, “Wow.” But I love him. My mother is also a big fan of her and she is a great artist.
What’s the last book you read?
Confidence: live spontaneously and embrace life by Osho.

What’s the last thing you did to take care of yourself?
Elaborate. It’s been a minute, but I trained with a trainer.
What’s the last piece of advice you received that impacted your career?
Probably you can have dreams, but if you’re not ready to move your feet or do whatever it takes to make them come true, then that’s all they’re going to be left with, dreams. Word to Denzel [Washington]. It’s probably between that and never taking no for an answer. I like that too.
