Scott says she was drawn to both the physical challenges of Sierra’s journey and the character’s emotional complexity. "The short form format has quickly become a pioneer of narrative diversity, and I’m proud to have been part of a storyline that celebrates not only women, but women of color, seizing their destinies and being their own heroes."

For her performance as Sierra, Scott has been nominated for a 2017 Emmy.
