Leila Kotori, Leila Kotori, Leila Kotori.
Have I said it enough times? Just once more…Leila Kotori.
It just rolls off the tongue doesn’t it? And so it should! This girl is set for stardom. Ready to take the world by storm.
Leila started performing at a young age, acting and dancing. She decided she was going to be an actress, she wanted fame, fortune and everything that came with it.
Unfortunately the dreaded teenage doubts kicked in and she thought maybe she needed to get a “proper job”. Leila’s dream of becoming an actress was pushed to the back of her brain drawer and instead she went to study Geography and Archaeology at university.
With her degree firmly under her belt and the vision of becoming a real life Lara Croft slowly fading, Leila felt the tug of her creativity creeping back in. She knew in her heart that acting was her calling and so enrolled to do a Screen Acting Diploma at Redroofs Theatre School.
Leila has since gone on to star in the multi award-winning short film ‘Human’ by Patrick Ryder and also two feature films, ‘Set Me Free’ and ‘Fighting Heart’.
Leila’s most recent venture,’Blame’ which she has written and co-produced is in the post production stage. Leila is raring to get it out there and on to the festival circuit.
