"I knew you'd like her," said the tutor at London Studio Centre. I guess my interest in a certain skill set and type of performer precedes me. They were absolutely right - I was blown away by Leah right from the moment I looked at her CV.
I mean, how could I not want to know more about a performer whose skill set includes Basic Welsh, playing with fire - Poi and Staff, Acrobatics, Juggling, Static Trapeze, Board Diving, Gymnastics, Horse-riding, Scuba Diving? Add in that Leah is also a highly skilled dancer and a killer mezzo and, well, colour me hooked!
I'm really drawn to performers who know exactly who they are and are proud to share that with the world and I love Leah's edge, her outlook on life and her breathtaking talent. I'm really excited to work with Leah and see what we get up to, I have a feeling it's going to be a really interesting ride.
