If you love to watch the 60s, 70s, or 80s films and TV shows and sitcoms, you might be familiar with the name Lucie Arnaz.
She is an actress and singer and has been at it for almost six decades (59 years, to be precise). Simon Luckinbill is one of her three kids.
Simon’s direct family mostly belongs to the Hollywood industry, as his mother, Lucie, her father, Laurence, and his maternal grandparents, Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, were all actors and actresses.
Now, one can think that if someone’s whole family is linked to the Hollywood industry, it’s clear that Simon would also choose to be an actor.
But, you know, things don’t always happen the way we want them to. Simon wasn’t much interested in acting from the beginning. He loves art, though.
So, what do you think he did? Did he become an actor, like his parents and grandparents? Or did he choose to go his own way? Let’s find out together.
Who Is Simon Luckinbill?
First things first, who is this guy, Simon Luckinbill? Well, honestly speaking, it’s because of her famous mother, Lucie, that we’re talking about Simon.
Now, one can argue that NO! He also has an identity; he is an artist and painter. Yeah, I know he is an artist and painter, but aren’t many people out there, too?
His painting and art only give him an identity, but when we talk about fame, and I mean real fame, he is known as the “son of Lucie Arnaz.”
Simon’s complete name is Simon Thomas Luckinbill. He was born in Los Angeles; however, he spent most of his childhood in New York.
He is ethnically Cuban, and his zodiac sign is Sagitarrius. His parents are Lucie Arnaz (mother) and Laurence Luckinbill (father).
Not only were his mom and dad great actors, but his grandparents, Desi Arnaz (grandpa) and Lucille Ball (grandma), were among the most prominent actors in the 40s and 50s.
Simon’s mother and father both married twice in their lives, and Simon has siblings as well as half-siblings because of that.
He has two siblings – a brother and a sister – named Joseph Luckinbill and Katharine Luckinbill.
Before marrying Lucie (Simon’s mother), Laurence Luckinbill was married to Robin Strasser from 1965 to 1976; he has two kids – both sons – with Robin.
They are Nicholas Luckinbill and Benjamin Luckinbill. This makes them half-siblings of Simon Luckinbill. In total, he has two siblings and two half-siblings.
His sister, Katharine, was born on the 11th of January, 1985, and she is 37 years old as of June 2022. His brother Joseph’s birth date is the 31st of December 1982, and his age is about 39 years.
As stated earlier, Simon isn’t interested in acting and joining the Hollywood industry, but that’s not the case with his siblings.
Both his siblings have links to the industry, as his brother is a famous guitarist, and his sister , is an actress and walking on the same path her mother walked.
What Is Simon Luckinbill’s Profession?
You all can guess that Simon would be anything but an actor. From his childhood, he was determined that he would become an artist and painter.
So, that’s what he did. As of 2022, he is a famous painter, and his paintings and other artwork have been displayed in several galleries.
His paintings are so famous and in-demand that they were sold out less than two hours after the auction’s beginning.
You can pretty guess how devoted he is to his work. In an interview, he said that after learning music and studying arts, he discovered his true passion.
For the first time in his life, he was determined on his decision to become a painter. He considers art an emotion, and by his art, he tells the world about himself.
His Net Worth
Simon belongs to a wealthy family, as almost all of them are successful actors and actresses, but his exact net worth is yet unknown.
His grandpa, Desi Arnaz, died when his net worth was around 4 to 5 million$; his parents can also be called millionaires.
For that reason, I’m just going to call him a millionaire.
Is Simon Dating Someone?
People want to know more about celebrities’ relationships and personal affairs than they do about anything else, and that’s natural, honestly.
But, unlike his other family members, who are pretty open about their personal lives, Simon prefers to maintain his privacy.
This means that we can neither confirm nor deny whether he is seeing someone or not, nor what his sexual orientation is.
So, given that he is about 42 years old, it seems like he must be seeing someone, or maybe he is married privately and hasn’t told anyone yet. What do you think?
Simon’s Parents. Lucie & Laurence Luckinbill
Lucie – his mother – is an American actress who is about 70 years old as of June 2022. Her complete name is Lucie Désirée Arnaz.
