My own actors library
Real name is Lucie Desiree Arnaz
Was born at 17 July 1951 (now is 67 years old) in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA
There is some small facts about Lucie Arnaz:
  • Children, with husband 'Laurence Luckinbill' , are sons Simon Luckinbill and 'Joe Luckinbill' (who are two years apart) and daughter 'Katharine Luckinbill' ("Kate", who is one year younger than Joe).
  • Daughter of 'Desi Arnaz' and 'Lucille Ball' .
  • Older sister of 'Desi Arnaz Jr.' .
  • Turned down an offer to appear as Snow White and sing the ill-fated duet with 'Rob Lowe (I)' at the 61st Annual Academy Awards.
  • Arnaz's efforts to preserve her family's history led to her helping create a genealogy software package, to help others learn how to digitize important data and documents.
  • Remembered one day while driving that a taped television interview with her was about to air, and actually stopped at a randomly-picked house, asking the family inside if she could come in. Luckily, the family were fans of her parents, recognized her, and changed channels to let her watch the show.
  • First choice for the role of Betty Rizzo in Grease (1978) , she was allegedly dropped from consideration when her mother, 'Lucille Ball' , called Paramount and said, "I used to own that studio; my daughter's not doing a screen test!" Ball actually owned the studio which was bought by Paramount, Desilu. The role went to 'Stockard Channing' when the casting director remembered seeing her with Arnaz in the '50s-themed play "Vanities". On KGO Radio, in San Francisco (December 10, 2009), Ms. Arnaz denied this to be the case, saying that she was offered the role of Betty Rizzo in "Grease", but that a lack of solid confirmation, coupled with a conflicting contract, were the deciding factors in her not playing the role. She said that her mother had no participation, aside from counseling her that *she
  • had to decide between the two offers.
  • Niece of 'Fred Ball (II)' and 'Kenny Morgan (I)' .
  • Stepmother of 'Nicholas Luckinbill' and 'Ben Luckinbill' . Aunt of 'Haley Arnaz' .
  • Made her professional debut, at about age 12, on her mother's television series, "The Lucy Show" (1962) . She plays a teenage employee in the ice cream shop in "The Lucy Show" (1962) {Lucy Is a Soda Jerk (#1.23)} .
  • In an interview on a San Francisco radio station, she said that, growing up, she lived next door to 'Jack Benny' in Beverly Hills.
  • In an interview on a San Francisco radio station, she stated that of all her mother's shows, she and her brother, 'Desi Arnaz Jr.' , only own the rights to "Here's Lucy" (1968) .
  • Her mother wanted to name her after her cousin 'Suzan Ball' , but her father wanted her to have her mother's name as an honor to her. When Ball drifted off to sleep, Arnaz wrote the name "Lucie" on her birth certificate. He chose to spell her name differently to distinguish mother and daughter apart from one another.
  • Sister-in-law of 'Amy Arnaz' . Ex-sister-in-law of 'Linda Purl' .
  • (August 10, 2003) The Ogunquit Playhouse in Southern Maine: Lucie dropped by for a walk down memory lane, sharing her award-winning documentary Lucy and Desi: A Home Movie (1993) (TV) , revisiting the private lives of her very public parents.
  • She and husband 'Laurence Luckinbill' resided in Katonah, New York and maintained an office in nearby Ridgefield, Connecticut.
  • (October 2012) She and husband 'Laurence Luckinbill' currently reside in Fairfield County's Weston, Connecticut.
  • She was supposed to play Betty Rizzo, but 'Lucille Ball' objected when she learned the producers wanted her daughter to screen test for the role. Supposedly, she called up and said, "I used to own that studio; my daughter's not doing a screen test!". 'Olivia Newton-John' on the other hand, insisted on a screen test for the role of Sandra Dee. She was concerned that she did not have the acting skills and that she would look too old to be a high school student. The screen test would allay those fears. She got the role that had originally been meant for 'Susan Dey (I)' who was Laurie Partridge on "The Partridge Family" (1970) , which she turned down on her manager's advice.
  • Lucie weighed 3.345376 kilos or 7 lbs 6 oz at birth according to the birth announcement in the milestones column of Time magazine's July 30, 1951 issue.

There is the list of some quotes of Lucie Arnaz:
  • [on performing onstage with 'Tommy Tune' in "My One and Only"] I really loved it. It was a huge dancing show. I like to challenge myself. I don't know what that's about, probably proving that I'm not just 'Lucille Ball' 's daughter, that I can actually get up and do something once in awhile. I would throw myself into these crazy situations. That was one of the best apprenticeships I could ever have as a dancer.
  • [on her father, 'Desi Arnaz' ] He was big enough and smart enough - as a producer, as a performer - to allow them to make fun of his mild accent. When, in reality, anybody with half-a-brain would be congratulating this person who now speaks two languages, fluently.
  • [on whether her mother, 'Lucille Ball' , considered herself a feminist] She would never have said that about herself. I think it ended up feeling like that to other women - "Look at her, she had the nerve to be that character on television, who wanted to do more than just be a housewife." But, in fact, Lucy Ricardo never really wanted it bad enough to go get it. It just made for good comedy. My mother gets a lot of credit for being the first-woman-this and the first-woman-that. But I remember her saying, "Oh God, I never gave it a second thought.".
  • Everybody has a unique, interesting story to tell. I think what people can take away from this is that their story isn't any less valuable than mine, or my mother's. And because she had fame, that did not make her life that much easier or luckier. She had lots of perks. I doubt she would have traded what she had. But it wasn't all that easy. A lot is expected of people who have that kind of fame. It's a lot to carry around. It changes your life significantly. And not everybody is ready for that.
