Leona Worcester played roles such as Susan Pevensie in "The Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe" and Suzy Hendrix in "Wait Until Dark" on stage and was recently seen in "Pastime" and "Thunder". Her latest credits also include "Loophole" and "Fat Chance".
Leona studied acting both at Shakespeare's Globe and at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art where she earned certifications of merit and distinction. She is currently studying with Andrew Benne at Los Angeles Acting Studio SD, Eliza Jane Schneider at Premiere Voice Training, & Cindy Hogan at The Acting Coach.
Leona was born in Fort Hood, Texas, lived in Germany, and traveled all over Europe, Africa, and back to the United States during her father's Army career. She graduated summa cum laude from LeTourneau University and married a Naval officer accompanying him to Central America and the Middle East. Leona has never had the same type of job twice - with the exception of being a drama teacher 4 years in a row. In her free time, Leona reads classical literature, writes western and sci-fi screenplays, and practices new and old skills alike such as violin, piano, and swordfighting. Leona's favorite weapons are sword and shield and bo staff. She particularly enjoys playing Beethoven because she, too, is hard of hearing.
Leona looks forward to contributing to the next hottest Netflix series and acting in anything opposite Meryl Streep.
