Coming Soon: ‘Sierra Burgess is a Loser’, starring Shannon Purser

Our ginger love for natural redhead Shannon Purser ignited in Stranger Things, burned brightly in Riverdale, and has now turned to wildfire with her latest role in Sierra Burgess is a Loser (fiery puns all intended, by the way).


September 7 🌻

In her first-ever leading role, Shannon plays Sierra Burgess, a high school student who feels like she doesn’t fit in. But in a twist of fate, her life collides with one of the cutest guys in town. Plenty of high school drama ensues, of course.

But overall, the Netflix movie is a heartwarming tale about growing up, fitting in, and learning to love who you are, without trying to impress anyone else. And that, my ginger friend, is a lesson we can get behind.

Shannon has always been a firm advocate for loving yourself, your quirks and standing out from the crowd, so the messaging of the film fits well with what’s she’s about.

Sierra Burgess is a Loser is out on Netflix from 7 September, and you can catch the trailer below.
