Cerina Vincent (born February 7, 1979) is an American film actress best known for playing the Yellow Ranger Maya in the television series Power Rangers: Lost Galaxy and a naked foreign exchange student in Not Another Teen Movie.
Vincent was born in Las Vegas, Nevada of Italian descent. In 1996, she won the Miss Nevada Teen USA title and competed at Miss Teen USA. Though she made it to the top 15, she failed to place at the pageant (televised live), which was held in Las Cruces, New Mexico and won by Christie Lee Woods of Texas.
She also appeared in the film Not Another Teen Movie (2001) as the foreign exchange student Areola, and spends the entire film nude. The character was a spoof of Shannon Elizabeth's character, Nadia, in American Pie (1999). She admits that being nude in the movie made her feel much more comfortable with her body.
She also starred in a R-rated horror film called Cabin Fever (2003). In 2006, Vincent appeared in the Sci-Fi Channel Original Movie Sasquatch Mountain, alongside Lance Henriksen, and got her first leading role in It Waits. She was also in the recently released Return to House on Haunted Hill which made its debut straight to video.
Cerina is publishing her first book in 2007, which she co-wrote with author Jodi Lipper. It is called How to Eat Like a Hot Chick. She has also written a couple of movie scripts, but by her own admission in a recent interview whether or not they'll see the light of day remains to be seen. While a horror script will have a studio requesting her to play the lead as part and parcel of getting the film made (not always what she intended while writing it), a romantic comedy often has executives wanting bigger names to fill the role.
