Lucie Arnaz

Believe it or not, Lucie Arnaz is celebrating 50 plus years in show business. She began her long career in a recurring role on television on The Lucy Show, opposite her mother, Lucille Ball. At age fifteen, she became a series regular on Here’s Lucy, a show which ran for six seasons. She starred in her own series, The Lucie Arnaz Show and later in the critically acclaimed Sons & Daughters on CBS.

On the big screen, Lucie has starred opposite Neil Diamond and Sir Laurence Olivier in The Jazz Singer (for which she received a Golden Globe nomination), opposite Tom Laughlin in Billy Jack Goes To Washington, alongside Ken Howard in Second Thoughts, and opposite Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Henry Winkler in Down To You, a Miramax film. Lucie costarred with Richard Roundtree, Robert Loggia and Bob Forster in Wild Seven and in an award-winning controversial film about second hand smoke from writer/director Alyssa Bennett entitled The Pack which debuted at Sundance.

On the stage, Lucie got her equity card playing many of the best women's roles in the theatre - Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Daisy Mae in L'il Abner (her first time opposite Dirk Benedict), Princess Winifred, opposite Kaye Medford, Rudy Vallee, Christine Andreas and Don Amendolia in Once Upon a Mattress, Goodbye Charlie (produced by Burt Reynolds), A Time to Stay, opposite John Ritter. With Stockard Channing and Sandy Duncan, Lucie created the role of Kathy in the west coast premiere of Vanities at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. She later won the role of Gittle Mosca in the national company of the Cy Coleman/Dorothy Field's "love of a musical", Seesaw, opposite John Gavin and Tommy Tune and directed by Michael Bennett. She spent a summer at The Jones Beach Theatre in New York, playing Annie Oakley in Irving Berlin's Annie Get Your Gun, with Harve Presnell. During that summer, Broadway beckoned and she auditioned for and snagged the coveted role of the unforgettably wacky, Sonia Wolsk, in the Neil Simon/Marvin Hamlisch/Carole Bayer Sager musical They’re Playing Our Song, directed by Robert Moore for which she received The Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle, Theatre World and Outer Critic's Circle Awards.
