Emma (Hellcats)

Lahana had originally auditioned for the role of Tori Hanson, the Blue Wind Ranger, in Power Rangers: Ninja Storm, which she lost, before winning her role in Dino Thunder. Ironically, she would co-star with Sally Martin, who won the Blue Ranger part, in the team-up episode Thunder Storm and in the Once A Ranger anniversary episode in Operation Overdrive.

Lahana dated S.P.D's Red Ranger actor Brandon Jay McLaren (Jack Landors), but they broke up after a while. As a result, McLaren turned down the offer to reprise his role for Once A Ranger because Lahana was reprising her role.
