M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender is getting some dismal reviews. But at least it's worth seeing for the stars: Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire and Aasif Mandvi from The Daily Show With Jon Stewart are a couple of familiar faces. And one new actress who fans are taking note of is Seychelle Gabriel, who plays Princess Yue.

So who is this mysterious Mexican beauty?

Gabriel is a talented singer (maybe you caught her performance on the Tonight Show?) who's recently moved into acting. In addition to Airbender, she's appeared in the films The Spirit and Welfare to Love, as well as had a recurring role as Adelita on Weeds.

And it looks like we're going to be seeing a lot more of this 19-year-old star. Nylon Magazine named her one of the 55 faces of the future in its Young Hollywood issue, and she'll appear as a series regular on the original TNT sci-fi action/drama series Fallen Skies, which is produced by Steven Spielberg and airs next summer.

Are you going to see The Last Airbender this weekend?
