    • Lana: (being asked who of the seven dwarfs she would be) Sassy!
      Lana: (on what she is proudest of in her life yet, she answers thoughtfully) Listening to my inner voice. I don't think people do that enough.
      Lana: (on her dream role in Hollywood) I feel like I'm really getting the great roles right now at this point in my career. But if I were to craft one on my own, I would continue down the path of these really strong women that seem really complex and layered and have strength to them. I think of Glenn Close a lot - she has the career that I would love to have.
      Lana: (on playing strong and complex women) I'm learning more about myself from playing these roles. I'm like, 'OK, well, what is it about me that I keep playing these women? I guess I have like this inner strength as well. I'm pretty bold in my expression and very daring in how I live my life.
      Lana: (her advice for women out there today) Don't be afraid of your voice to get it out there, let it be heard. Follow your heart, cause it always knows!
      Lana: Take your time and learn your craft!

    • Lana: (talking about what her feather tattoo means)You are where you need to be. Just take a deep breath.

    • Lana: (On her mixed heritage)
      I've played Latin, I've played Italian. And I've played the all-around regular girl. I think the thing about the way I look, is that I can look like many different things. People sometimes ask me if I'm Russian. I don't think I specifically look like a Puerto Rican or an Italian. Wouldn't you agree?

    • Lana: I'm one who likes to travel a lot anyhow. I'm kind of like a gypsy. I don't live in one place too long, I'm always moving. I've probably lived like in 18 different places.

    • Lana: When I was just a kid, growing up in Brooklyn, I was constantly making home videos with my family – real silly high-concept productions like, 'Attack of the Killer Handkerchief.' I guess I knew even then that I wanted to be an actress.

    • Lana: (On her style) My boyfriend says I dress like a rock star but I would say my style is hip and comfortable.
