Noel Kristi Wells (December 23, 1986) is an American actress, voice actress, comedian, director, musician, and writer best known for Master of None and her short time on NBC's Saturday Night Live.

Being something of a cutie, she tends to play them as well, either onscreen or in voice, though she completely subverted that expectation as Lord Dominator in Wander over Yonder.

Much like John Milhiser and Brooks Wheelan, Wells' time on SNL (during its 39th season) was woefully short-lived. Even though Wells is the show's first Mexican-American cast member (as well as it's first, and, so far, only North African cast membernote  and the first cast member whose name has an accent on itnote . Compare with Melissa Villaseñor), she and the rest of the new cast (up until Sasheer Zamata was hired in the middle of season 39) were dismissed as being "too white" and a sign that SNL wasn't interested in hiring black female cast membersnote . Nonetheless, Noel Wells had slightly more screentime than Milhiser or Wheelan and did show signs that she had potential in staying on the show. Sadly, she, Wheelan, and Milhiser were let go after one season.

Noel Wells' recurring characters were paltry (an unnamed child actress on the "Spotlightz! School for Child Acting" sketches and an unnamed student in Nasim Pedrad's "Shalon" sketches), but she managed to have more celebrity impressions than Milhiser and Wheelan: Kendall Jenner, Nancy Grace, Lena Dunham (both as herself and as her character on the HBO dramedy, Girlsnote ), Emma Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow, Britney Spears, Kristen Stewart, Alyson Hannigan, Reba McIntire, and Zooey Deschanel.
