Maria Gabriela de Faria is an award-winning 24-year-old Venezuelan actress and singer. She currently stars as “Franky” in the Nickelodeon hit series “YO SOY FRANKY!”, and is currently finishing up her third film, the romantic comedy “PLAN V”.

Maria catapulted to fame as Isabela “Isa” Pasquali in Nickelodeon’s teen juggernaut “ISA TKM”. Across Latin America, the Venezuelan teen telenovela (dubbed the “Latin American High School Musical” by The New York Times) spawned legions of shrieking adolescent fans (“Isa-Mania” as coined by the Los Angeles Times). The show, produced by Sony Pictures Television, premiered in more than 23 countries and quickly became Nick’s No.1 Spanish Language show around the world.  Media buzz surrounding Maria vaulted her onto the covers of teen magazines, and the tops of “best dressed” and “girl I’d most like to be” lists across Latin America and Brazil.

Maria second hit for Nickelodeon was “GRACHI” (remade in the US as “Every Witch Way”).  With Maria added front and center to GRACHI’s Season 2, the premiere on Feb 27, 2012 nearly tripled ratings in its time slot and continued to build through Season 3.  As Mia, she was nominated for over 5 Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, winning “Favorite Actress” in Mexico in 2013. Her role as “Juana” in the hit LatAm series “VIRGIN DE LA CALLE” (remade in the US as “Jane The Virgin”), showed a more grown up side of her acting. “YO SOY FRANKY” is her third hit series for Nickelodeon, and also netted her a few more Latin American Kids’ Choice Awards (“Favorite Actress” “Favorite Series”, “Favorite Character”) as well as her first US Kids’ Choice Nomination (“Favorite Latin Star”). She has 14 total Kids’ Choice Awards (and counting).

Her first feature film, “EL PASEO 2” with John Leguizamo, opened #1 in Colombia on Dec 25, 2012.  Legions of MGdF fans turned out opening week to help propel the movie to the top spot. She has since starred in “Crossing Point” (her first US/English language film), the soon-to-be-released sci-fi thriller “PACIFICO”, and her current project, “PLAN V”.

Maria Gabriela de Faria began her career acting in the Venezuelan telenovela “Ser Bonita No Basta,” the teen drama “Túkiti, Crecí de Una,” and the soap opera “Toda Una Dama.” In 2007 she was a co-host of the children’s program “La Merienda” from RCTV. She has also been the star of several advertising campaigns in LatAm.
