Lucille Ball, of course, is known for her iconic role as Lucy on the much-loved TV show I Love Lucy. But aside from her acting, Ball was also a child prodigy and an accomplished studio executive. At a young age, Lucille followed her gut instinct and chose to act, breaking into the local theaters before her big move to Hollywood.
The Star of the Show
After I Love Lucy became a hit, Lucy and Desi opened their first production company, called Desilu, which would eventually release films such as Mission Impossible. In addition to her professional, entertainment-related accomplishments, Lucille Ball was also a devoted and talented gardener.
