After years of being the standout star of Netflix giants including Stranger Things and Riverdale, Shannon Purser is taking on the leading role – and our hearts are already melting.

The actress – who might be known as Barb or Ethel to you – will be playing Sierra in upcoming film Sierra Burgess is a Loser, and its honestly giving us all the romantic teen comedy feels.

Seriously, Netflix have been crushing it with their rom-com game lately.

In a modern re-telling of Cyrano de Bergerac, Sierra plays a high school teen who is unconfident in her looks, picked on by the cheerleaders, and doesnt feel like shes able to get the guy.

But as she falls deeper for the jock, how long will it be until he finds out the truth and have her reveal herself as she is?

We have a feeling were going to need a load of tissues and chocolate to get through this one.
