In The Spotlight: LEAH HARRIS

 1. How did you get into the acting / modelling industry? 

After my A-levels I went to a Performing Arts college in Essex and we had to get head/ body shots for auditions and I absolutely loved the photoshoot! It was from those first images that I got signed to my first agency in London !

2. Your best piece of advice for aspiring models / actors?

Invest in yourself. At the start I did a couple of test shoots for photographers/ videographers without payment, this added to my portfolio and gave me more modelling experience.

3. What has been your favourite shoot to date? 

I couldn’t choose there has been too many fun days and every shoot is so different! But being Taylor Swift's stand in has to be up there! I learned so much watching her in action and just being on that set!

4. If you had to choose someone (besides yourself) to play you in a movie, who would you choose & why? 

Rachel McAdams because she is one of my favourite actresses AND she gave us The Notebook and Mean Girls in one year, I mean the diversity!!! 
Julia Roberts because she’s just incredible.

5: Best thing about being represented by Face? 

I absolutely love everyone at Face! The girls in the office are all so easy to get along with and chat too. Vicky is at the end of the phone whenever I need! The girls keep me busy with regular work and it’s FACE that really helped take off my career as a model so I will always appreciate them for that.

6. Did you always want to be in this industry or did you have a different childhood dream? 

When I was about 5 I saw Mary Poppins in the West End, that’s when I decided I wanted to perform. Although, I’d already been annoying my family with performances since I was tiny. 

I think I always secretly wanted to model especially after watching Victoria Secret runways when I was younger!! I still have a long way to go and want to push the acting side of my career too as I always saw myself being in films and naturally taking to acting roles. Let’s manifest ✨
