When asked why her name is not spelled like her mother's Lucie replied: "My Dad chose the name. My mother wanted to name me Susan (don't ask why) but, as soon as she nodded off after delivery, he wrote L-U-C-I-E on the birth certificate. He said it was to honor my mother and he spelled it differently so that NO ONE would ever get confused."
After a few guest appearances and walk-ons on her mother's series The Lucy Show, Arnaz, along with her brother, made her first acting appearance in a continuing role as Lucy's daughter Kim, in the television series Here's Lucy. She returned to television in the 1975 production of Who Is the Black Dahlia? playing murder victim Elizabeth Short. In 1980 she played the lead opposite Neil Diamond in the remake of The Jazz Singer.
In 1986 she earned the Sarah Siddons Award for her work in Chicago theatre. She won an Emmy Award in 1993 for her documentary Lucy and Desi: A Home Movie.
In 2000 she played a season in London's West End in a musical version of The Witches of Eastwick.
Arnaz is married to the actor Laurence Luckinbill.
