Shannon Purser Discusses Her Leading Role In Netflix’s “Sierra Burgess Is A Loser”

“Sierra Burgess Is a Loser” is a modern rom-com retelling of the Cyrano de Bergerac story set in high school. The story centers on Sierra (Shannon Purser), an intelligent teen who does not fall into the shallow definition of high school pretty but, in a case of mistaken identity that results in unexpected romance, must team with the popular girl (Kristine Froseth) in order to win her crush (Noah Centineo).
