After being absent in the first half of the final season of Fear the Walking Dead, Luciana returns in the second half.

She has also directed an episode of The Walking Dead and two of The Walking Dead: World Beyond.

Fear the Walking Dead – Danay Garcia

Garcia was introduced as Luciana Galvez in season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead. She was a member of the Los Colonia community in Tijuana, Baja California. She becomes romantically involved with Nick Clark (Frank Dillanie) but leaves him during season 3.

She would reunite with the group at the Dell Diamond in season 4. After the fall of the Diamond, she remained with the group. When Nick is killed by Charlie (Alexa Nisenson), Luciana is the one who stabs him in the head to ensure he doesn’t reanimate.
