As a child, Ciara loved horseback riding.
I even wanted to become a jockey when I’d grow up, - Ciara recalls.
However, the universe had a different plan for her, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

First roles

Her acting career began when Ciara turned 9. In 2009, under the egis of Wings Model Management agency, she participated in the young models’ contest in Texas, Model and Talent Expo, where she won the favors of the jury and won several awards in different nominations. The actress’s future agent shared in one interview: When I first saw Ciara on stage, I realized – she was a true star.

Thanks to Wings Model Management, Ciara appeared in her first commercial in Kentucky, and then she voiced-over a couple of cartoons and played in 2 short-length movies.
I used to fly often to California, during school time too – I had many many many auditions, - she says.
In 2009, Bravo took a short break – it was quite challenging to be pulled into a shooting all across the continent. However, she didn’t have to stay long in her hometown. The producers of the new Nickelodeon musical series Big Time Rush organized an online audition for her and in just 24 hours, Ciara was already on site on set in Los Angeles.

The series tells the story of four friends from Minnesota, who are dreaming to become famous musicians. Ciara played the role of Katie, Kendall’s (Kendall Schmidt young sister, whose life takes a U-turn after relocating to Los Angeles. Just like her character, Ciara understands very well what’s it like to be far away from friends and family. When the shooting started, she was split between two cities, and she had to talk to her father, brother and sister over the phone, mostly.
Fortunately, - Ciara confesses, - I was so busy that I simply had no time to feel homesick.
The series was very popular with the viewers and it was extended for three more seasons, the final episode airing in 2013. In 2012, the girl played a role in the series’ spin-off full-length movie, Big Time Rush, according to which the already familiar group of friends is heading to London as part of their first worldwide tour.

The blooming of the acting career

Coming to the realization that the world of film and television is her life choice, Ciara decided to take classes from the famous American actor and professor – Larry Moss, who collaborated, at some point, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Hilary Swank and other famous artists. Ciara had to choose studies and shootings over her dream of becoming a director, postponing her plans to apply to a film school.

Ciara’s hard work and innate talent earned her a role in the comedy drama series Red Band Society (2014-2015), the plot of which focuses around a group of teenagers in the pediatric ward.
