Ciara Wilson

One of the best things about TV shows and films are the comedians that play in many of them. There’s nothing better than a good laugh. Ciara Wilson is one of these comedians that can spawn  one of those laughs. She is gifted in comedy, she can create a laugh from people through movements, facial expressions and verbally. 

Ciara started her career at eight years of age in Portland Oregon. Her first roles were voice-overs for Fred Mayer/Kroger grocery stores. She ended up being involved with several commercials in Portland before heading to LA. Once Ciara arrived in LA, her first project would be a co-starring role on, Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger. After this she would go on to be a guest-star on Disney’s Bizaardvark as Vicki “Hot Head” Fuego. Also on Dreamworks TV series “OMG” Ciara is recurring appearing in thirty sketches so far.  

The Disney episode of Bizaardvark vs. Hot Head is extremely funny. This show is fun for the audience and fun for Ciara. “Playing Vicki Fuego was one of the most fun and interesting experiences I’ve ever had” said Ciara. Surprisingly, playing the role of a fighter came easily for her. As it turns out, she has had a little training in the martial art style of Taekwondo. “But it was my professional Hip Hop dance career and athleticism that really helped me land the role” said Ciara. This episode is a blast to watch. Some of the faces Ciara makes in her scenes are “classic”, you cannot help but laugh. One of the cool things for Ciara, was the role of a tough and aggressive girl which is totally opposite of who she really is. 

In this episode there were a stretch of scenes with “Vicki” breaking several props. There was a cinder block which she punched to pieces and then chopped three wooden shelves in half. One of the funniest scenes was of Vicki pulling a stuffed bunny apart. She started pulling it apart by hand, then pulls its ear off with her teeth, and the look on her face was priceless. Pulling it apart with her teeth was not in the scripted.  “On the last take, I decided to take a risk and pull the last ear off with my teeth! Everyone in the room was laughing, and the director decided to keep it in the show” said Ciara.

Dreamworks TV is a bit like home for Ciara with her recurring on “OMG”. She says this has been fun filming and has met many lifelong friends through it. “Sketch  comedy is one of my favorite things to do and the OMG sketches were so funny and over the top” said Ciara. Cheerleaders were one of her favorite episodes to film. In this episode Ciara got to play alongside one of her best friends. They played cheerleaders who cheered for people in the worst situations. Some of these situations include, during a science fair, on a first date, babysitting, plus many more. 

Her talent as an actress has not been going unnoticed. In the spring of 2017 she won the Young Entertainer Award for Best Guest Starring Actress in a TV series for her role on Bizaardvark. She was also nominated for a Young Entertainer Award for her Dreamworks TV sketches as well as two Young Entertainer Awards for the same roles.  



Ciara may have played a mean tough girl on TV, but in real life she has a heart of gold. She is part of, The Children’s Outreach. This organization donates clothes, shoes and toys to kids. When volunteering you get assigned a child to pick out a package for specifically. “We always wonder where exactly our donations are going, so I love how personal the Children’s Outreach is” says Ciara.  Her favorite time to volunteer is during Christmas because many of the children come from financial backgrounds that do not allow them to have presents at all. “It’s heartwarming reading about their favorite toys and wish lists and imagining their faces when they receive their packages” said Ciara. She is happy to be able to can make a difference in their lives.  

For her fans, she says never be afraid to reach out. “I love love to talk to my supporters about their dreams, passions and favorite things to do” says Ciara. She also says, she responds to comments and direct messages often and its the best way to keep in touch with her. Ciara loves to inspire others.
