Luna Blaise is an American actress and singer born on October 1, 2001 in Los Angeles, California, USA. She is probably best known for appearing on the NBC series “Manifest”.
Luka Blaise Boyd is the daughter of Paul Boyd and Angelyna Martinez. Luna’s name means “moon” in Spanish and was chosen by her mother as a reminder of her Spanish roots. She has an older brother whose name is unknown.
Regarding her ethnicity, Luna considers herself mixed race: “My father is from Glasgow, Scotland, and my mother is from San Antonio, Texas, a second-generation Mexican-American. Everything in my life has been colourful, musical and rich in culture.’ She said PopSugar.
Luna is deeply appreciative of her Latino heritage and what it has contributed to her life: “My cultural background has had a great influence in shaping who I am, especially my Mexican side. My mother has brown skin and she is very proud to be Latina. Everything she does, from the way she dresses to the way she dances, reflects her strong sense of identity.’
Blaise is an experienced dancer, who has practiced Russian dance from an early age. There is no information about her early education, though it is known that she attended a home school program at the age of 13 which gave her enough time to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
Due to her parents’ profession – her father is a director and her mother a manager – it is no wonder that Luna Blaise grew up close to the entertainment industry.
This led her to start modeling at the age of five, appearing in commercials for renowned companies such as KFC, Target and McDonalds.
Her first appearance in a movie was in “Vicious” in 2008 when she was only seven years old. Although she did not play a major role in the film, only a cameo appearance, her love for acting made her keep pursuing more roles, and in 2012 she made her official acting debut in the movie “Memoria” as Nina. The independent film was directed by Vladimir de Fontenay and Nina Ljeti and was based on the ‘Palo Alto’ stories James Franco wrote during his teenage years.
About the experience of appearing in the movie at such a young age, 11, Luna told Show off it was the role that defined her path as an actress: ‘It was pretty crazy. I didn’t appreciate it enough at the time because I was so young, but being in a James Franco movie is pretty cool. Filming that, i
began to understand what acting is: portraying someone else and bringing them to life. When you see the movie, it’s not who I am at all, but that’s what I love about acting.”
Debut TV series
Luna Blaise’s first major TV role was playing Nicole’s role in the 2015 series “Fresh Off the Boat”. Despite her young age, Luna really enjoyed acting in the series, as her character was based about one of her biggest inspirations in real life: “My character on “Fresh Off The Boat,” that’s what the crew told me, even the writers said it was kind of Jennifer Lopez-inspired. So that’s kind of my character. I dress like her in the show. I act like them on the show, like from “Jenny From the Block”. That’s kind of my inspiration and certainly also for music, because she’s so incredibly beautiful.’
Her performances in “Right Off the Boat” led Luna Blaise to win the 2016 Young Artist Awards category for Best Recurring Actor.
Also in 2016, Luna appeared as the love interest of Jacob Sartorius in the music video for his song “Sweetheart”.

Luna Blaise made her debut as a singer in 2017 with the single “Over You” written by her. Although she didn’t write the lyrics based on personal experiences, she thought it was a song befitting a young love: ‘it’s not just about a boy who likes you for two seconds and then you’re over it. The song reads, “I’ll never get over you.” So it’s like you’re in love, and you’re just so hopelessly devoted to them, but you know you’re just going to be friends and that’s totally fine. That’s kind of what it’s about and just going through your whole ‘crush’ phase.”
In addition to Jennifer Lopez, Luna also considers Beyonce, Kehlani and The Beatles as her music influences.
As for her musical background, she remembers her interest in it started during her childhood: ‘I come from a very musical family. I didn’t grow up watching TV, but my family and I listened and played music all the time. I remember when I was little our dining room was turned into a rehearsal room for about five years, complete with drum kit, guitars, amps and microphones. My parents would bring music speakers on the weekends when all their musician friends would come over and just jam.”
Luna released her second single titled “Secrets” in 2018.
Also in 2018, Luna Blaise was cast for her second major role, in the sci-fi series “Manifest”, playing the character of Olive Stone, which was very important to her as it brought her huge fame, hence more opportunities in the entertainment industry. .
Despite the fictional theme of the series, Luna considers her character in “Manifest” to be “inspiring,” telling The Knockturnal“What I love about playing Olive is that she’s really real. The circumstance that she went through is not something that is normal, but she has real feelings and you see that, and you see the bond between her and her father and her twin brother. I think it’s great that everyone sees that.’
