Sierra Aylina Mcclain Interview

Teen Vogue: What was it like joining such a major show in its third season, as the new girl?

Sierra McClain: I was scared out of my mind. I told my mom, “I’m afraid I’m not going to be able to keep up. They’ve been doing this for three years, their chemistry is already there… I’m nervous!” She was like, “Sierra, if you weren’t doing well, I would tell you, because I’m not going to let you mess up my favorite show.” But I was very afraid when I first got here. This was one of my first consistent jobs by myself —I was so used to working with my sisters, [Lauryn and China Anne McClain], and singing with them. I had never sang a full song by myself, so I [didn’t] even know if my voice will hold up at the studio. But my family was a big support system. My sister screamed louder than I did when I booked it!

TV: Are you getting tips or help from other people in the cast?

SM: I work closely with Trai [Byers, who plays Andre Lyon]; he has been really good about helping me during some of these scenes. This show is serious. It’s a big show, it’s a mainstream show. It’s commercial, but it’s serious acting. So you can’t go on this show and play around with it. You [have to] be in it, because everybody else is. And so he’s really helping me out and giving me good advice, and we just have good conversations, and we talk, and I appreciate him for that. It’s really helped me.

TV: Have you and Serayah bonded in any way during filming?.

SM: Mmm hmm! We’ve gotten close. It was hard coming to Chicago by myself. At some point, my mother was with me, then Lauryn came up here to be with me, and then they left. But for the premiere of the show, Serayah texted me, “Hey, where are you watching the show?” I told her, “I’m just here in my hotel room” and she was like, “You should come over!” So I went over there, and we laughed and we ate. I don’t know if she really knows how much I really appreciated it, but I was here by myself and it was the premiere, and I was away from my family. She didn’t have to do that; she had no reason to be as sweet as she has been. But it really meant…so much. And I had a blast, and ate a home-cooked meal for the first time in God knows how long!

TV: Like you said, the show deals with very serious topics, like mental health, violence, and in season 3, police brutality. What is it like being on a show that’s constantly pushing to have these important conversations on such a huge platform?

SM: I’ve always wanted to do that. I’ve always wanted to be a part of a platform that was going to use its voice responsibly. So I couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of it. When I first heard “Need Freedom” I was…so excited. And it couldn’t have come out at a more perfect time. I thought, “This is gonna touch people. They’re gonna feel it, I know it, because I’m feeling it right now.” And then getting “Woke” after that…I felt honored that they were using my character to really shed light on these topics and on these situations. They’re using music to shed light on these topics. Music is universal. Even if you don’t see eye to eye with some of the points that they’re making through their storylines [or] even if you don’t quite understand it, you’re gonna feel it. Music is just a universal language.

TV: What kind of response did you get after the first episode of the season, where you performed “Need Freedom,” aired?

SM: It was big. My name was trending. That’s never happened before in my life. So I was excited. I had to take a moment and call my family and be like, “Guys…what is going on? Is this really happening?” And my sisters were crying; we were all emotional on the phone. It was like an outer body experience. But I felt so full and so blessed. And it’s only gotten better and bigger from there. So hopefully it keeps going.

TV: Is there any part of Nessa’s personality that you feel you identify with?

SM: The guarded part; the part that protects herself. I think you can see it a little bit when you watch her, behind her eyes. It’s that, “Keep everybody at arm’s length” [mentality]. And that’s one of the parts that I really wanted to come through for her. So hopefully it does, because I think it adds a little bit of depth to her. And then of course the fact that music is running through her veins. I think for her, music is it. There is no doing anything else. I don’t even know what I would do if I couldn’t make a living off of it. I would just sit in my room and make music, constantly.

TV: Before you joined the show, did you have a favorite episode, moment, or song as a fan?

SM: I’m constantly replaying Serayah’s “Body Speak”. Every time it comes across my YouTube, I play it. But there are so many good moments in the show. I think the way they opened the pilot…everybody got hooked from then on. When Jamal was on the piano and Hakeem came down the stairs, and they did this impromptu performance. I don’t know what it was about that, but I think from that moment on, that’s what got everybody hooked. I love the musical moments on this show. That’s why it’s so weird taping them, because I’ve watched these for so long, and now I’m a part of them.
