Hi I’m Leo

I love gaming with my friends, singing and watching movies such as Star Wars and Harry Potter. My mum says I was always a performer and would sing all the words of “Frozen” songs with lots of dramatic actions, when I was only age 3!. When I was 7  I busked for an hour in Belfast at Christmas and made over £150 for singing with actions!! So she signed me up to a drama group BSPA.

Last year I had my first audition for a film and got the part of a young boy. It was really fun. I also have been selected for some singing roles in adult theatre shows, and just loved watching and learning from everyone.

I’m in a running club, play gaelic and play the piano.
