INTRODUCING CIERA PAYTON

Ciera Payton is an accomplished actor, writer, social activist and entrepreneur hailing from the city of New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina, Ciera and her family relocated to North Carolina where she graduated with a B.F.A. from the University of the North Carolina School of the Arts. While still enrolled in school, Ciera landed the female lead role opposite Steven Seagal in Flight of Fury.

Since her breakout role, she has shared screen time with many talented artists including Viola Davis, Nicholas Cage, Kevin Hart and Josh Brolin. Past credits include USA Network’s Graceland, Bad Teacher on CBS, and Spike Lee’s Oldboy. As a writer and solo performer, Ciera created and performed her one-woman show, Michael’s Daughter, a piece detailing her compelling journey of growing up in New Orleans to her present success in Los Angeles through a series of letters with her incarcerated father, Michael.

While dedicated to her acting career, Ciera also manages to and time to contribute to her local community. Her dedication to arts education in underserved communities led her to create the non-profit organization The Michael’s Daughter Foundation, which provides an annual theater and media arts summer camp for youth impacted by incarceration. Her contribution was recognized by the City of Los Angeles’ Mayor Garcetti and Councilwoman Nury Martinez, as she was rewarded the 2016 Pioneer Woman Award.

A free-spirit, Ciera enjoys boxing, painting, cooking and most importantly, dancing! She continues to have an unwavering commitment to always be her best, challenge the limits of everything she does, while always remaining true to herself.
