    Well, what can I say about 23-year-old Cuban gem Danay Garcia, currently starring in FOX's TV series ''Prison Break next to Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell or William Fichtner ''? From the first time I saw her on ''Prison Break'', I was simply blown away and still am. Danay Garcia is an absolute stunner, incredibly gorgeous and just beautiful. It isn't just her looks but her Cuban accent just adds that little bit of sexyness to an already amazing woman. Her acting is, in my opinion, underrated and I hope they keep Danay for the fourth season of FOX's drama series ''Prison Break''.moreless
