Ciara Bravo and Amy Adams Compare Notes on Origins and Acting

Ciara Bravo is at a turning point. The 24-year-old actor, who got her break when she was 12 years old on the Nickelodeon comedy Big Time Rush, is making the sometimes treacherous leap into more adult fare, and she’s doing it with both feet forward. Fans of her earlier work, which includes the Nickelodeon movies Swindle and Jinxed, might not recognize the Kentucky native as the drug-addicted wife of a bank robber she plays in the Apple TV+ drama Cherry. Adapted from Nico Walker’s auto-fictional biography of the same name, the Joe and Anthony Russo-directed movie stars Tom Holland as an Iraq War veteran suffering from PTSD who, once hooked on the Oxycontin prescribed for his anxiety, turns to robbing banks to feed his and his wife’s addiction. Over the course of the movie, Bravo’s character transforms from an innocent college student into a desperate addict, fighting to hold her marriage together. As she tells the actor and producer Amy Adams, it was a challenge she was ready for.

For 23-year-old Ciara Bravo, ‘Cherry’ is a star-making role

Ciara Bravo didn’t have high hopes for her prospects when she saw the names attached to “Cherry.” She’d been working in the business for over a decade, but it was mostly in television and bit film roles. No way, she thought, was she going to be cast to star opposite “Spider-Man” himself, Tom Holland, in a major film based on a bestselling memoir about PTSD and opioid addition from Marvel maestros Joe and Anthony Russo.

Before nabbing her role on the fan-favorite throwback series, Ciara didn’t even want a career in acting. “I was very into horseback riding and I wanted to be a jockey when I was older,” she told Teen Vogue in 2014, before explaining how she became an actress. “I took the opportunity and ran with it. I started to fly out to California in the summers and for a few weeks during the school year, and I would audition and audition and audition. After about four or five years of that, I booked BTR, which was awesome. I got to be on that wonderful, wonderful show with amazing people for four years.”

Ciara Bravo Reveals What It Was Really Like Working With Tom Holland And The Russos On Cherry - Exclusive

Although Ciara Bravo has had much success over her career — with roles in the hit sitcom Big Time Rush and the dramedy Red Band Society, as well as guest stints on series like NCIS and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – the actor knew she was taking her craft to a whole new level with the recently released crime drama Cherry.

Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo in ‘Cherry’ Movie Review: Bank Withdrawal

Fans of Tom Holland and Ciara Bravo will be pleased Cherry gives them so much to do. It’s almost too much. The story doesn’t really kick in for about 80 minutes. It’s a good story, but does not require as much setup as its given. It does show growth from directors Joe and Anthony Russo after their four-film Marvel stint, although some of the same issues with bloated, sprawling stories.

How Ciara Bravo got into the mindset of an opioid addict for Cherry

When his best-selling debut novel, Cherry, was published, Nico Walker was in jail. Walker is an Iraq war veteran who was deployed at 19 years old and returned to the United States 11 months later, with what one forensic psychiatrist described as the worst case of PTSD he’d ever seen. To help cope, he was prescribed opioids. He became addicted, and heroin followed soon after. When he ran out of money to score, Walker began robbing banks. He got away with 10 heists before he was caught.

Cherry star Ciara Bravo on bringing light to Tom Holland's dark addiction drama

If Cherry tells the story of one man's descent into darkness, then Ciara Bravo's Emily is one of the film's few beacons of light. The 23-year-old Kentucky native costars as the college sweetheart and eventual wife of Tom Holland's army vet protagonist, and although he sees her as a refuge from his problems, she's juggling traumas of her own. The film — directed by Avengers: Endgame alums Anthony and Joe Russo and adapted from Nico Walker's semiautobiographical novel — follows the pair from school into adulthood, as they grapple with opioid addiction, Holland's character's military service, and eventual bank robbery, all wrapped up into one sprawling, fourth-wall-breaking saga.
