SHARKNADO 5: GLOBAL SWARMING MEET MASIELA LUSHASHARKNADO 5 GLOBAL SWARMING
MEET MASIELA LUSHA
By Sammi Turano


We have watched the lovely and talented Masiela Lusha grow up before our eyes on the hit ABC series George Lopez, where she played the sassy Carmen. She has also done voiceover work, starred in several movies and has made quite a name for herself. 

These days, she is best known for being in Sharknado 4 as Gemini. Tonight, she is set to return in Sharknado 5. She recently talked to me in an exclusive interview about the movie. Below are some of the highlights from our chat. 


1. Masiela says that there is a lot of story to be told with her role and that she is glad to have the chance to return. At first, she was apprehensive about taking on the role, but once she read the part, she knew that she couldn’t turn it down. She loves that Gemini is very multidimensional, loving, family oriented and that she gets to do her own stunts!


2. Although she has a plum role in the movie, Masiela admits that at first, they didn’t know where to place her character. They first thought about making her the babysitter, then a friend before they finally made her into the cousin. She thinks that her role as the cousin compliments the arch of the family story. She adds that it was a good way to find a place to help find her uniqueness in her own world.


3. As for working with the cast, Masiela says that it was an amazing experience that she will never forget. She says that at first, she felt like a guest on the set, similar to the first day of school. However, that feeling ended quickly and everyone greeted her with open arms and welcomed her into their family. She says that being on set feels like being home.


4. So what is Masiela up to now that the movie is getting ready to air? She says that she has spent so much time working on projects that she plans on taking a short break before jumping into something else. However, she still plans on working on a play that she is in and hints at a super secret project that she thinks will make her fans VERY happy. You will just need to stay tuned to see what happens.
