Lana Wood's parents were Russian, but they grew up far from their homeland: Her father lived in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, while her mother grew up in a Chinese province. After marriage, they settled in Santa Monica, California, where Lana was born.
Lana and Natalie Wood were fans of director Sam Wood, from whom Natalie took her new last name. When the sisters made The Searchers, in 1956, Lana's mother was asked under what last name should Lana be credited and she agreed it would be best if she could be credited as Lana Wood.
Lana Wood is best remembered for her work as Plenty O' Toole in the 1971 James Bond film, Diamonds Are Forever. Nevertheless, she participated in more than 20 other films or television shows through her career. She retired from acting in 1982, concentrating on her career as a producer. She has been involved in more than twenty productions.
Lana Wood has one daughter, a grandson and a granddaughter.
