Lana Wood (born Svetlana Zakharenko on March 1, 1946) is an American actress and producer. She was born to Ukranian ï¿½migrï¿½ parents, Nikolai and Maria Zakharenko, and is the younger sister of actress Natalie Wood. She made her film debut in the classic John Wayne western The Searchers and was a regular on the soap opera Peyton Place. She is best known for her role as Plenty O`Toole in the James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever. Wood was born Svetlana Nikolaevna Zakharenko to Ukrainan parents, 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 her parents were married, they settled in Santa Monica, California, where Lana was born. By this time her parents had legally changed their surname to Gurdin. Her older sister was actress Natalie Wood. They have a half-sister, Olga Viriapaeff, from their mother`s previous marriage.
Lana has married five times. She was briefly married at age 16 to Jack Wrather Jr. before their marriage was annulled. At age 18, she was briefly wed to Karl Brent. At age 21, she was briefly wed to Steve Oliver. Lana married a fourth time to Richard Smedley in 1973. They have a daughter, Evan Taylor Maldonado, born on August 11, 1974. In her memoir, Lana claims that Smedley hit her on occasions. They later divorced, and Wood married a fifth time to Alan Balter, whom she also divorced. Wood was romantically involved with actors Warren Beatty, Ryan O`Neal, Alain Delon, and Sean Connery. She talks about these relationships with detail in her autobiography. Lana currently lives in Thousand Oaks, California. She has three grandchildren: grandsons Nicholas and Max, and a granddaughter, Daphne.
