Luna is of Scottish and Hispanic ancestry, and was raised together with her elder brother, River Boyd.

Luckily, she landed her first role as Victoria in the drama “Konflooent” at the age of six, and concurrently appeared in many commercials for KFC, Mcdonald’s and Duncan Hines.

She is a dedicated environmental activist, who previously shared ‘One of the things I was fascinated by was the way our ecosystem worked. It all comes from the water: all of it. I learned that we humans were slowly destroying our ecosystem by polluting our oceans. That is where it began for me.’
The Californian actress likes watching films and shows starring her favorite entertainers such as Matt Damon and Julia Roberts – her favorite productions are “Good Will Hunting,” “The Sleepers,” and “Pretty Woman.”

Career Beginnings and Film Appearances
Blaise made her film debut aged seven in “Vicious,” which was released in 2008. Then balancing education with her budding career, landed the role of Nina in the 2012 Vladimir de Fontenay-directed film “Memoria,’ which was based on James Franco’s “Palo Alto” stories. Responding to a question about her experiences in “Memoria” during an interview with Flaunt, she said, ‘I didn’t appreciate it enough at the time because I was so young, but being in a James Franco film is pretty cool. Filming that, I came to understand what acting is: portraying someone else and bringing them to life. If you see the movie, it’s totally not who I am in any way, but that’s what I love about acting.’
Next, Luna appeared in the 2016 film “Detach”, and in 2018 landed the role of Eileen in the short film, “Surviving Theater 9”, and starred in the Lije Sarki-directed family adventure movie “Concrete Kids,” which co-starred Jacob Messex, Myles Strampello, and Christopher Romero.
