About Leonie Charles
I am a versatile actress, who while studying acting, also trained as a Dancer. I spent 2 years with 'Fusion Dance/ Drama Company', travelling all around England with a live Jazz Band, performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and representing England at the Indian Theatre Olympaid 1991 in New Delhi, coming second place. My training has included: Ballet Rambert Dance School, The City Literary, and the prestigious Anna Scher Theatre School
After 9 years absence from Stage work, in 2014 I played the lead in a play called 'Losing Sight of Home', set in the 60's, about West Indians who immigrated to England. I have always wanted to play a character from that era and setting - it really was the ideal role after such a long time away from doing Live Performances.
I have a warm and genuine persona. I am authentic and bring a natural energy and enthusiasm to castings, my work and people I work with.
My goal is to be a working actress in Film, Television & Theatre. I am willing to pack my bags and go wherever the bookings take me...
