Leslie Hope
b. May 6, 1965 in Halifax, Nova Scotia


<Leslie Hope>   <Leslie Hope>  

Leslie Hope grew up in a military family, and that usually means moving on a regular basis. When she was 15, the family moved to Italy, and she enrolled at a boarding school to finish her pre-college training. Instead of pursuing her original plan to become a lawyer, she decided to rebel, announcing to her parents that she wanted to be an actor. In 2008, Hope stepped behind the camera to write and direct the short documentary, What I See When I Close My Eyes, which screened at the 2009 Female Eye Film Festival in Toronto. Leslie Hope played opposite Bruce Greenwood in the series The River.
