Born in Manhattan, veteran actress BarBara Luna has been a familiar face playing a variety of roles in film, TV and on the stage. Her showbiz life started on Broadway as the daughter of Ezio Pinza in the original production of “South Pacific.” Throughout her career, Luna has performed on stage with roles in “The King and I,” “Teahouse of the August Moon,” “West Side Story,” and “A Chorus Line.” She co-starred in many films, including “The Devil at 4 O’Clock,” “Firecreek,” “Ship of Fools,” “Mail Order Bride,” “The Concrete Jungle,” and “Five Weeks in a Balloon.” She went on to guest star in hundreds of popular TV shows, like “Zorro,” “The Wild Wild West,” “The Big Valley,” “Gunsmoke,” “Bonanza,” “Hawaii Five-O,” “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century,” “Dallas,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,“ and “Mission: Impossible.” A single episode appearance as Lt. Marlena Moreau in the “Mirror, Mirror” episode of the original “Star Trek” series, starring William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, became a major highlight for Luna’s career. Additionally, she became a fan favorite on the sci-fi convention circuit. Luna also appeared in the daytime dramas “Search for Tomorrow,” “Sunset Beach,” and One Life to Live.”
