According to the publication, Lucinda is of Middle Eastern and European heritage and has played a mix of characters who have English, South Indian and Austrian backgrounds.

‘A lot of foreigners become successful by really taking on the language and Indian culture,’ she said.

She added about India: ‘People think it’s so different to Australia but once you live there and you’re a part of the culture you realise how similar we all are as humans no matter what race or religion.’

‘But if there was one thing I am particularly proud of it is learning a foreign language (Hindi) which is a language I had never been exposed to before moving to India,’ she said.

She added that she loves being able to immerse herself in different cultures around the world as a model and actress.

‘My greatest accomplishment is being able to travel and experience different cultures and work in all different parts of the world,’ she said.

‘My greatest accomplishment was being in my first ever Hindi television as a lead actress.’
