Jessica Jade Andres is a Filipina actress originating from Minnesota. After two minor roles in the TV series Gossip Girl, Andres' first major role came in a short film directed by Nicole Roberts called Out of Darkness. She has also acted in a few films as uncredited characters.
In February 2009, it was announced that Andres would play Suki in the M. Night Shyamalan feature film The Last Airbender; however, her scenes were ultimately cut in the final movie. Shyamalan chose Andres because he said he would wanted the characters to all be played by "undiscovered" actors. There were a few pictures released of Andres as Suki, along with the rest of the Kyoshi Warriors, and the group was also included in the French trailer for the film. They are also included in a deleted scene titled "The Avatar has Returned" in the DVD release of The Last Airbender.
