Lucie Arnaz Wiki Biography

Lucie Arnaz is an actress and singer who has accumulated a net worth of 20 million dollars. Lucie Arnaz has earned her huge net worth through appearing on TV and on the big screen, as well as in musicals on stage. Lucie comes from a family of actors as she is a daughter of a famous actress Lucille Ball and an actor and musician Desi Arnaz. Her brother Desi Arnaz, Jr. has also become an actor. Lucie Arnaz has been acting since 1968 and is still active today, therefore it easy to see how she accumulated her impressive net worth.

Lucie Arnaz Net Worth $20 Million

Lucie Arnaz was born in 1951 in Los Angeles and grew up there. As she comes from a family of actors it was not difficult for her to begin her career as an actress as well. She made a debut in a famous show “I Love Lucie” where both her parents appeared. However, it was only one walk-on appearance for Lucie, and her role in another show of her mother called “The Lucie Show” was also small. The real achievement for Lucie Arnaz was “Here’s Lucy” in which she appeared from 1968 until 1974. In this show, too, the main role of Lucie was played by Lucie’s mother Lucille Ball, while the young Lucie played her daughter Kim Carter.

When “The Lucy Show” was finished Lucie Arnaz moved on from family related projects and began advancing her career as well earning her net worth on her own. The first role that she got was in 1975 in “Who is the Black Dahlia” where Lucie played a real-life murder victim Elisabeth Short. Later in 1978 Lucie appeared in one episode of the famous TV series “Fantasy Island”. While her own TV show “The Lucie Arnaz Show” which came out in 1985 proved not very successful, Lucie herself continued working on television and appeared in such famous TV series as “Murder She Wrote”, “Sons and Daughters”, and “Law and Order”, among others.

Lucie Arnaz increased her popularity as well as net worth by acting on the big screen, too. One performance in particular was very successful for her and even brought her a nomination for Golden Globe awards in the category of best supporting actress. That was the 1980 remake of a 1927 hit movie “The Jazz Singer” where Lucie appeared along with the famous actor Laurence Olivier and a singer Neil Diamond.

Another area of Lucie Arnaz’s activities and a source of her net worth is musical theater. She began playing in theater from the late 70’s and one of her first appearances was in Long Island’s Jones Beach Theater’s production “Annie Get Your Gun” where she played the main role. A year later she debuted on the Broadway stage in a musical called “They’re Playing Our Song”. Since then she has played in numerous musicals and received several awards including Theatre World Award and Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award.

Lucie is also known for her work in the fields other than acting, one of which was running the Lucille BallDesi Arnaz Center.

1Everybody 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.
2[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.".
3[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.
4[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.
1She was awarded the 1978 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Distinguished Performance in a Musical for "A They're Playing Our Song" at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
2Lucie 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.
3She 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 who was Laurie Partridge on The Partridge Family (1970), which she turned down on her manager's advice.
4She and husband Laurence Luckinbill currently reside in Fairfield County's Weston, Connecticut. [October 2012]
5She and husband Laurence Luckinbill resided in Katonah, New York and maintained an office in nearby Ridgefield, Connecticut.
6(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), revisiting the private lives of her very public parents.
7Sister-in-law of Amy Arnaz. Ex-sister-in-law of Linda Purl.
8Her 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.
9In 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).
10In an interview on a San Francisco radio station, she said that, growing up, she lived next door to Jack Benny in Beverly Hills.
11Made 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: Lucy Is a Soda Jerk (1963).
12Stepmother of Nicholas Luckinbill and Ben Luckinbill. Aunt of Haley Arnaz.
13Niece of Fred Ball and Kenny Morgan.
14First 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.
15Remembered 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.
16Arnaz'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.
17Turned down an offer to appear as Snow White and sing the ill-fated duet with Rob Lowe at the 61st Annual Academy Awards.
18Older sister of Desi Arnaz Jr..
19Daughter of Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball.
20Children, 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).
