Luisana Loreley Lopilato was born in Buenos Aires on May 18th 1987, to Eduardo (a businessman) and Beatriz Lopilato. The youngest of three children, Luisana’s career began as a happy accident. One day, while walking with her mother, they were approached by a casting director who asked if 6-year-old Luisana would audition for a commercial.
Her mother was less than excited about the offer and declined. The casting director however, was not about to let it go. He phoned the house. This time her father answered and he was considerably more enthusiastic, taking Luisana to the audition.
She got the job, and so began her amazing career. It wasn't long before the young Luisana - a rare combination of super model beauty and girl next-door personality - would catch the attention of movie and television producers. However, unlike many child actresses, there would be no special on-the-set classes. She was to be schooled like every other child in the neighborhood. It would seem rather than limiting her options – the balance served to increase them.
Her first significant role came in 2001 when she played Guivivere in the Argentine drama, Un amor en Moises Ville (Love in Moises Ville). With her passion for the business having firmly taken hold, this was a role Luisana desperately wanted.
Unfortunately, the part required her to complete the dialogue in both Spanish and English. Having completed the movie in Spanish, she then had to admit she did not speak English. To her credit, the movie house was so impressed with her performance; they took the news in stride, hiring an English coach to help her reprise the role in that language.
That same year well known Argentinean producer Cris Morena cast the now 12 year old Luisana in the role of Luisana Maza in the TV show Chiquititas (Tiny Angels). The popularity of the show (similar to today’s GLEE) would prove to be the turning point in her career with further screen roles and a music career as an unexpected bonus.
The music element of the program gave Luisana the opportunity to be on the CD that accompanied the show every year. Following the program's mini-series, Morena then cast her as Mia Colucci, the only child of famous fashion designers, in the soap opera Rebelde Way (Rebel's Way).
The series, set in the Elite Way School, a private and prestigious boarding school, revolved around a group of students who had formed a band. This in turn led the main actors who played the members of the band to actually form a group called Erreway. In addition to performing most of the show's music, the group, of which Luisana was a member, recorded 3 CD's, selling over 5 million copies!
It wasn’t long before the show began to broadcast outside of Argentina - Israel, Peru, Germany, Austria and Spain to mention a few. Suddenly, Luisana's fame extended beyond the borders of her home country fueled even further when the series film version "Rebelde Way, Cuatro caminos was released in 2004. With the fashion focus of the TV series and the popularity of the music, the world of fashion became a natural segue for Luisana who was now featured in photo spreads in high profile magazines and sought out for product endorsements.
For eight years she was the face of the very popular 47th Street clothing line and her commercial work has extended from such well-known brands as L’Oreal to Coke. In 2005, she would make her first move in television without her artistic mentor Cris Morena.
The young actress was cast as the Kelly Bundy character, in the Argentine remake of Married with Children (Casados con Hijos). Her brother Dario, also an actor of note in Argentina was also a part of the cast. The show, like its American counterpart, was a huge success resulting in a nomination for a Martina Fierro Award (OSCAR equivalent) for Best Supporting Actress.
A year later Luisana would once again work with Cris Morena in the teenage series, Alma Pirata (2006) - a story of friendship, perseverance, adventure, justice, freedom, loyalty and love. That year the show won the Martin Fierro Award for Best Youth Comedy.
Under the guidance of Argentinean actress Alicia Zanca, Luisana made her stage debut in 2007 in Arlequin, Servidor de Patrones, a role that brought her an ACE Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress (TONY equivalent), which led to the lead role in the musical Princesa Cenicienta (Cinderella).
In 2008 Luisana returned to television and accepted the role of Nina in the popular prime time show Atraccion X4.
She stayed with the series for two years, once again combining her skills as an actor and singer.
In the winter of 2009 she accepted the role of Julieta, starring opposite Nicolas Cabre, in the movie production of the Argentinean bestseller Papa por un dia (Dad for a Day).
In 2010, Luisana finished her main role in the serie of channel 13 “Alguien que me quiera”, whit Andrea del Boca and Osvaldo Laport.
Concluding that year, Luisana was engaged to Michael Bublé.
In March of 2011, Luisana and Michael Bublé were married.
Currently, Luisana is the image of ELVIVE L´OREAL and ONA SAEZ jeans. Most recently she became the image of “Ultimo”, an international lingerie brand from the UK.
She started 2012 shooting for the CHANNEL 13 series “Lobo” (Wolf), alongside Gonzalo Heredia and Adrián Navarro. This role is generated great buzz since it was the first time Luisana played the villain.
Regardless, Luisana keeps surprising everyone. She’s become one of the most sought after and well paid actresses today, showcasing her different facets as an actress, like she did on “Maltratadas” (Mistreated), in which she played the starring role in the last chapter of the series. In the season finale, she played a victim of gender abuse, opposite Juan Gil Navarro.
Aside from her acting, she has published her first book called “Luisana en Casa” (Luisana at Home), where she not only extensively reviews her biography, but also shares her passion for cooking and all the recipes that have played an important part throughout her life. Through this book, Luisana shares her memories of a life filled with emotion and nostalgia.
Also in parallel to acting, she gave her first step in fashion design, preenting her fisr collection for the Marcela Koury brand.
Luisana ends another great year in Italy, shooting the RAI miniseries“Una Buona Stagione”.
From her success in making use of her talent and beauty, Luisana has become one of the most demanded actresses of her generation, with a solid career in movies, television, fashion and music.
