Leslie is thrilled to be playing defense attorney "Jill Goldberg" in 27 Down. Originally from River Vale, New Jersey, Leslie's love of acting was apparent as a child when she put on plays and musicals in her own backyard. She continued acting (on stage) in school plays and majored in Drama at Northeastern University. After graduating college she put acting on the shelf for many years while she worked and raised a family. However, some 9 years ago she auditioned for a play with the Concord Players, was cast in the show and has never looked back since.
Most recently Leslie was seen on stage as "Olive Braddock" in The Graduate with the Burlington Players and as "Gwendolyn Pidgeon" in The Odd Couple with the Concord Players. Her next role will be that of "Kate" in Broadway Bound opening in November with the Burlington Players. Leslie also enjoys acting in films and commercials and her film credits include the "News Anchor" in Right of the Meridian and a "Jewish Grandmother" in Spaghetti and Matzo Balls. She more recently played a bipolar housewife in a Mass General Hospital commercial.
Heartfelt thanks to her wonderful family and friends for their continued love and support in this endeavor to follow her heart's desire.
