The most challenging thing which Natalia finds doing in Raising the Bar is memorizing and speaking the legal dialogue.
Natalia was involved with the WB pilots Bloomington, Indiana (1998) and Fresh Meat (2000). However, both pilots weren't picked up by the network.
Cigluiti appeared in the made-for-TV movies St. Sass (2002) as Evan and Romantic Comedy 101 (2001) as Jennifer. She was also in the video Skooled (1994).
Cigliuti was not originally part of the pilot episode for Raising the Bar. When the series was picked up, the character of Bobbi Gilardi was added and she was called in to read for the role.
In the 1994 Young Artist Awards, Natalia, along with her castmates, was nominated for Outstanding Youth Ensemble in a Cable or Off Primetime Series for Saved by the Bell: The College Years.
The dream of Natalia's mother for her was to become a lawyer. This was somehow fulfilled when Natalia was cast as an attorney in the legal drama Raising the Bar.
When Natalia was doing All My Children , she divided her time between New York and Rhode Island. She is single and has been residing in Los Angeles, California. (2009)
In 2000, Natalia was one of the personalities featured in Maxim's Book of Big Pictures. Among the other prominent figures which appeared on the book were Heidi Klum, Charlize Theron, and Jenny McCarthy.
During her spare time, Natalia enjoys playing Scrabble, spending time with her family, traveling, and having game nights and Rock Band nights. Her other hobbies include swimming, horseback-riding, rollerblading, and playing soccer.
Natalia is 5'6" (1.68 m). She is a natural brunette having long chocolate-brown-colored hair.
Natalia Cigliuti left All My Children (AMC) briefly because of a pregnancy. Her son with Rob Rizzo (m. 24-Jul-2004), Kaden Robert Rizzo, was born on July 2, 2005 and weighed 7 pounds 15 ounces upon birth.
Natalia: (on what she wears on a typical day) I'm a busy mom on the go, so a pair of comfy jeans, a simple, colorful top, and a pair of cute sandals always work!
Natalia: (about where she draws inspiration in playing the role of Roberta Gilardi on "Raising the Bar") A lot of it is fairly close to me and who I am. It's really quite easy being fiery and passionate about what you believe in. It's a lot of who I am and that's kind of where I get it all.
Natalia: (about having a child with Rob Rizzo; in a 2005 interview) I love children and I don't think we'll wait five years to have one. I can't think of anything more exciting than becoming a mom.
Natalia: I don't think I'm somebody special just because of how I look, but a self-centered character sure is a lot of fun to play. I get to say things and behave in ways I would never dream of in real life.
Natalia: (on being a mother to son Kaden) It's the best, most gratifying thing I've ever done. He's the snuggliest sweetest kid.
Natalia: (about working with Mark-Paul Gosselaar on "Raising the Bar"; in a 2009 interview) I remember when I went to go test for it... I had met him 15 years ago when I was on The New Cla$s 'cause we would do promos and stuff together. So now, to be like playing opposite him... it's really strange. (giggles)
Natalia: Saved by the Bell was a great learning ground for me. I learned how to work with adults. It was a show starring kids, and it was made for kids, but the fact is I was working in an adult world. You kind of grow up fast around that.
Natalia: (on her most memorable moment doing "Raising the Bar") I think the whole show and series has been a blast to film and be a part of. Everybody in the cast are unbelievable. Hopefully, we'll get to do more so the memories will continue. I don't have a specific moment. I really did have a blast on the show. Everyone was so great and it's so fun.
Natalia: I like a guy who knows how to spend money and have a good time.
