So, who is Naomi Scott?
Scott is probably best known as her stint on the sci-fi drama Terra Nova, in which she played Maddy Shannon. Her first role came in the Disney Channel UK 2009 TV series Life Bites.
Recently, Scott had a small role in the box-office smash The Martian.
Scott, 22, was born in London, England. Before she landed a major acting role, Scott was in a all-girl band called Eternal.
In a couple of years, when the Power Rangers movie comes out, Scott will likely be a household name.
