Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

BarBara Luna is an actress who has deep roots on Broadway, but has also managed to maintain a career in film and television that's spanned over 50 years.She's acted in westerns, sci-fi shows, and on virtually everything in between. The early years of her career tended towards parts on such classic TV westerns as "Zorro," "Bonanza," and "Death Valley Days."

When it comes to science-fiction, Trekkies may recognize Luna from the 1967 "Star Trek" episode, 'Mirror, Mirror,' where she played Marlena. Luna's other sci-fi TV appearances include "Project U.F.O" in 1978, two episodes on "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" in 1981, and, late in her career, as Alersa on another incarnation of "Star Trek," in this case "Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II," one episode in 2004 and another in 2011.
