Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Lucille Ball was pregnant with Lucie Arnaz when she made the pilot for "I Love Lucy" in 1951, and Arnaz's first TV appearance was in the final scene of the final half-hour episode of "I Love Lucy", watching as her mother was unveiled as a statue for Yankee Doodle Day in Westport. Eleven years later, Arnaz played her mother's daughter, Kim Carter, for six seasons on the sitcom "Here's Lucy" (CBS, 1968-74), but found being the offspring of TV royalty Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball a mixed blessing. At 5'10", the attractive brunette, like her mother, was not a classic leading lady. While Hollywood was not eager to cast her at the demise of "Here's Lucy", the theatre welcomed her and Arnaz has carved out a career for herself as a musical comedy star, nightclub singer, as well as supporting player and occasional lead of TV-movies and series.
