Natalie says that her sister Lana was not too interested in films at first but later found out what a good time Natalie was having in the Film Industry so decided she would give it a go.

She did of course and had a reasonably successful career.

Although Lana Wood’s career never reached the heights of her sister’s, she did find some measure of her own fame as a “Bond girl”.

She played Plenty O’Toole in the 1971 James Bond movie, Diamonds Are Forever, opposite Sean Connery.

Lana’s career started out in Natalie’s shadow. She played a baby in Wood’s film Driftwood, although the role was cut from the end product, and she played a younger Natalie Wood in the iconic John Ford movie, The Searchers.

Lana Wood also starred in a series of well-known TV shows, including Peyton Place. She starred in a series of Hollywood films, and, later, in TV movies.
