Hobbies and other interests

Leslie is not a huge fan of the social media networks, which is why she isn’t active on Instagram, but has a Facebook page onto which she mostly uploads pictures related to her roles in films and TV series.

Her main hobby is travelling and Leslie has been to many Canadian cities and visited many US states such as New York and California where she’s spent a lot of time shooting – she has also been to several European countries, vacationing in Italy and France.

On top of the world, my little pretend piece of the world, I mean. Biking through Los Padres National Forest, feeling grateful to be alive, and more thankful still to be so happy.

1I was on a TV Show ['24'] where I got killed sort of unexpectedly, and where in my mind I had thought I was in good shape because I was the wife of the hero, and I was pregnant. And I ended up getting stabbed in the guts, right? So they made me a promise that it would be at least forty episodes before they would stab me in the guts and kill me in 'The River'. Call it a spoiler.
