Priah Ferguson sibling Jayda Ferguson lives in Atlanta. Priah parents John and Adjua raised her alongside her sister Jayda Ferguson in the city.

Ferguson has a special bond with her family. All of them supported her in beginning her acting career at the age of 7.

Priah is prominent for her role as Erica Sinclair on the Netflix series Stranger Things. She nailed her character as the annoying sister of Lucas in the series. She counts her little sister as her template for her performance as Erica.

Ferguson got interested in acting after watching the film "Daddy's Little Girls." She was curious about how people were moving on the screen and asked her mother about that. After knowing the whole process, she decided that's what she would do in her life.

She debuted in the industry with locally produced short independent movies. Atlanta, a television show became her first television drama.

Priah Ferguson Sister Jayda Is Younger Than Her

Priah Ferguson sibling Jayda Ferguson grew up in Atlanta. Jayda is two years younger than Priyah.

Jayda is possibly in middle school by now, as she graduated from preschool in 2013. Like her older sister, Jayda has also expressed an interest in acting.

The little one celebrated her birthday on August 16. Her mother ordered her a beautiful fondant cake from Candy's Sweets n Treats.

In 2013, her mother shared an Instagram post featuring the two sisters. She has mentioned that Jayda gave Priah her fave candy & a 'Congrats' balloon on last night's performance.

Ferguson has a strong bond with her sister. Even on her Instagram account, she shares pictures of her sister, stating how much she loves her.

Though she hasn't started her career yet, she seems to attend film-related events in her hometown. She loves

Ferguson's younger sister and their living and spending time together aided her portrayal of the little sister in her first Netflix series, "Stranger Things."

In the series, the actress played the role of Erica Sinclair, the sassy younger sister of Lucas (played by Caleb McLaughlin). It wouldn't be wrong to say that the series' main attraction was its little character.

After watching her realistic acting and perfect comic timing, many viewers praised Ferguson. Her dialogue from the series "You can't spell America without Erica" was even more popular. People even commented on the dialogue in her Instagram post.
