Gabrielle has had an extensive career as a B-movie actress, appearing in many films with overtly erotic overtones. Although she was in the 1982 adult film "Bad Girls IV" (credited as Luana Chass), she did not play an explicit part. She did, however, in the 1990s-era "Ravished." Gabrielle won the audition for the lead role in Emmanuelle 5. Gabrielle also had a string of minor role appearances in television shows and mainstream films that included "Dream On" and "Hunter" as well as "Night Shift," "Airplane II: The Sequel," and "Flashdance."
