Neela is the main female protagonist in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Sean Boswell's girlfriend.

Early Life

Her mother worked in a hostess bar after she came from Australia, and died when Neela was 10 years old. She was then taken in by Takashi's grandmother. Back when she was a kid, she cut class to go to the mountain and watch the older kids drift down.


The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift

When Sean Boswell arrived in Japan and goes to Madakura High School, she meets him in class. When Sean goes to the drifting world with Twinkie he sees Neela and begins talking to her when he realizes that she is with Takashi (also known as DK, Drift King), when he is confronted by him. While Han is in a meeting with Takashi, Sean talks to Neela and upsets her by calling her a military brat. After Twinkie's fight, Sean apologizes to Neela. Later they go on a date where Neela explains her past to Sean, after which Takashi beats up Sean.  After Neela finds out about what DK did, she confronts him, and ends things with him, he then calls her mother a whore. She then moves in with Han and Sean's crew. She is in Sean's car during the chase, and watches Han die. Afterwards at Sean's dad's house, DK shows up and takes Neela from Sean. When Sean shows up to make a deal with DK's uncle, Neela tells him that he shouldn't be there. After the race down the mountain in which DK is beaten, Neela is free from DK and now happily dates Sean.
