Luisana Loreley Lopilato De La Torre was born in Buenos Aires, in the Parque Chas neighborhood, on May 18th 1987, to Eduardo (a businessman) and Beatriz Lopilato. She has two siblings,a brother, Dario, and a sister, Daniela.

  The youngest of three children, Luisana’s career began as a happy accident. One day, while walking with her mother, they were approached by a casting director who asked if 6-year-old Luisana would audition for a commercial.
Her mother was less than excited about the offer and declined. The casting director however, was not about to let it go. He phoned the house. This time her father answered and he was considerably more enthusiastic, taking Luisana to the audition. 
She got the job, and so began her amazing career.

Recently Luisana shared that this was her first time modeling : "My first campaign! That day my mother called and said "Luisana is already in all the shops". I remember that we got the car and approached the nearest shopping mall and we were excited. It was the first time I looked so big, I took 100 photos in that shop. People kept walking and I was saying ... "hey hey hey this is me!" hahaha. I always dreamed of this. I always liked it. I loved my job from girl!"



It wasn't long before the young Luisana - a rare combination of super model beauty and girl next-door personality - would catch the attention of movie and television producers. However, unlike many child actresses, there would be no special on-the-set classes. She was to be schooled like every other child in the neighborhood. It would seem rather than limiting her options – the balance served to increase them.

 Lopilato made her debut in television series 10% vida and Mi familia es un dibujo in 1995 when she was only 7 years old.

 Her first significant role came in 2001 when she played Guivivere in the Argentine drama, Un amor en Moises Ville (Love in Moises Ville). With her passion for the business having firmly taken hold, this was a role Luisana desperately wanted. 
She was chosen for the role of Hannah niña. 

Un Amor en Moisés Ville (English: A Love in Moisés Ville) is a 2001 Argentine drama film directed by Daniel Barone and written by Antonio Ottone. The film starred Victor Laplace.
The film premiered in Argentina on April 12, 2001.

Unfortunately, the part required her to complete the dialogue in both Spanish and English. Having completed the movie in Spanish, she then had to admit she did not speak English. To her credit, the movie house was so impressed with her performance; they took the news in stride, hiring an English coach to help her reprise the role in that language.

That same year well known Argentinean producer Cris Morena cast the now 12 year old Luisana in the role of Luisana Maza in the TV show Chiquititas (Tiny Angels). The popularity of the show (similar to today’s GLEE) would prove to be the turning point in her career with further screen roles and a music career as an unexpected bonus.

The music element of the program gave Luisana the opportunity to be on the CD that accompanied the show every year. Following the program's mini-series, Morena then cast her as Mia Colucci, the only child of famous fashion designers, in the soap opera Rebelde Way (Rebel's Way). 

The series, set in the Elite Way School, a private and prestigious boarding school, revolved around a group of students who had formed a band. This in turn led the main actors who played the members of the band to actually form a group called Erreway. In addition to performing most of the show's music, the group, of which Luisana was a member, recorded 3 CD's, selling over 5 million copies!

It wasn’t long before the show began to broadcast outside of Argentina - Israel, Peru, Germany, Austria and Spain to mention a few. Suddenly, Luisana's fame extended beyond the borders of her home country fueled even further when the series film version "Rebelde Way, Cuatro caminos was released in 2004. With the fashion focus of the TV series and the popularity of the music, the world of fashion became a natural segue for Luisana who was now featured in photo spreads in high profile magazines and sought out for product endorsements. 

In 2005, she would make her first move in television without her artistic mentor Cris Morena. 

The young actress was cast as the Kelly Bundy character, in the Argentine remake of Married with Children (Casados con Hijos). Her brother Dario, also an actor of note in Argentina was also a part of the cast. The show, like its American counterpart, was a huge success resulting in a nomination for a Martin Fierro Award (OSCAR equivalent) for Best Supporting Actress.

A year later Luisana would once again work with Cris Morena in the teenage series, Alma Pirata (2006) - a story of friendship, perseverance, adventure, justice, freedom, loyalty and love. That year the show won the Martin Fierro Award for Best Youth Comedy. 

Under the guidance of Argentinean actress Alicia Zanca, Luisana made her stage debut in 2007 in Arlequin, Servidor de Patrones, a role that brought her an ACE Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress (TONY equivalent), which led to the lead role in the musical Princesa Cenicienta (Cinderella). 

Lopilato dated fellow Argentine, Juan Monaco, a professional tennis player, between 2008-2009.


In 2008 Luisana returned to television and accepted the role of Nina in the popular prime time show Atraccion X4.

In 2010, Luisana finished her main role in the serie of channel 13 “Alguien que me quiera”, with Andrea del Boca and Osvaldo Laport. She played Bianca Rivera, a sweet and sensitive young woman who struggled and suffered much for love. In November 2010, magazine FHM in Spain ranked Lopilato 17th in its annual list Las 100 mujeres más sexys del mundo Improving from 86th place last year.

In 2011, Lopilato made her debut on the international market with her first film outside of Argentina, in the Spanish thriller film Predeterminados, directed by Jordi Arencón, in which she plays Vera. It was a very dramatic role and a new challenge in her career in film, far more demanding than her previous roles as an actress. Lopilato also plans to soon begin a new play called Canillita with Alicia Zanca again. In June 2011, magazine FHM in Spain ranked Lopilato 11th "Las 100 mujeres más sexys del mundo" up 6 places compared to 2010.
