Most of the clothing Luciana wore in Dr. Doolittle 3 was made by Dorinha Jeans Wear, at her request.
Luciana is a model for Dorinha Jeans Wear. She is one of the "Dorinha Girls". Dorinha, whom she eventually became friends with, was Luciana's stand-in for the movie White Chicks.
She prepared for a scene in the Battlestar Galactica episode "Final Cut" by drinking about eight cans of the energy drink Red Bull. Her character, Kat, was supposed to be experiencing the effects of a "stim" (stimulant) overdose.
She was not told ahead of time that her character would die in the episode.
Luciana, nicknamed Lucci, is 5' 1" (1.55 m) tall.
Luciana: I became an actress because when I perform great material is when I feel the most alive.
Luciana: When I was a kid I was terrified of going down into my basement because I thought the devil was down there. When I did go downstairs I would run AS FAST as I could back upstairs cuz I thought the devil would grab my legs and pull me back down.
Luciana: When I was a baby I would scare the living day lights out of my parents because I would hold my breath to the point of almost passing out.
Luciana: (on the death of her character in "Battlestar Galactica") It was devastating. And I always say that because it really was, I was really devastated. Because I didn't see it coming... and nobody warned me about it. I had to say goodbye to Kat real quick. It was sad.
Luciana: I dress according to my mood. Sometimes you'll see me all BGirled out with a baseball cap, baggy track pants and some Air Force 1's and other times you might catch me wearing really tight jeans and stilletos. Like I said it really depends on my mood that day.
Luciana: (from the "Battlestar" Cast & Crew Yearbook, Summer 2008) Battlestar Galactica for me has been the most exciting ride of my life. All of which could not have been possible without the stellar cast, crew, writers, directors and producers. You will always hold a special place in my memories and in my heart. I will forever cherish and always look back at my time on Galactica with pride, honor and great appreciation. Thank you for the experience of working with 'The Greatest'. I love you all.
Luciana: (on playing a Viper pilot on "Battlestar Galactica") It was all greenscreen when we were flying, and it was challenging, but once I was there it was like I was in a video game. I felt like I was really flying the Viper and I was sweating and everything.
Luciana: I love my life! I never know what's next... I just have faith that everything will turn out in my favor and somehow it always does!
Luciana: I feel that challenges are what makes me grow as an actor and an individual. I always come out stronger and wiser in the end. Probably what I find the most challenging in my line of work is the business part of this industry. Gods I really suck at promoting myself. Doing the whole Hollywood thing. What can I say? I'm shy. Also being away from my family and friends in Toronto.
Luciana: I believe that in essence we are all one so I see myself in everyone, whether it's a character I'm playing, a random person I met in the line up at Starbucks or the homeless guy that sleeps in my back alley. I relate to all the characters that I play. They all have a big part of me in them.
Luciana: I'm attracted to ambitious and optimistic men. Confident independent men who know what they want. And they gotta have a big open heart and compassion and love for all living things. That's what I'm attracted to.
