Of mixed ethnicity, Ciara Riley Wilson added her middle name Riley to differentiate her from Ciara Wilson, NFL star Russell Wilson’s equally famous wife.

“We have a small thing in common,” Wilson joked about sharing the same name with the superstar singer. In an interview with Portland Tribune in February 2019, she emphasized that her brother, Riley Wilson, means a lot to her as well. “I got his permission; I look up to my brother and his qualities and how he carries himself.”

Starring as Letti Ramirez on L.A.’s Finest, an American action crime television series, she attended the premiere in Los Angeles.

Raised in Portland, Oregon, Ciara Riley Wilson moved to Los Angeles with her brother and her parents, Jay and Nanette Wilson, in 2013.

“It definitely was a career move,” she said about moving to California. Her career began in Portland at the age of eight with radio voiceover ads and local television commercials.

“Growing up I always wanted to be a performer, and I’ve been watching Disney Channel. It’s always been in my blood. I’ve done radio voiceovers and commercials, theater and acting camps, and I’ve decided this is something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. My parents helped me take steps working toward it.”

Ciara Riley Wilson played the multifaceted character Athena in the 2019 American comedy action-adventure television film “Kim Possible.” She attended the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie in February 2019.

“It’s definitely a breakthrough role for me, my first movie,” Wilson said about her role as Athena, an advanced android built by Dr. Drakken (Todd Stashwick). “I’m considered a lead in the movie, which is nice, part of the ‘Team Possible.'”

“It’s a fun character for me, a new character not in the original cartoon series. It’s exciting for me to bring (her) into the world. It’s the most complex character I’ve ever played; and I got to do stunt work, which is interesting.”
