Born to a French mother and a Canadian father in 1990, Lea makes her first steps on stage thanks to modern jazz dancing. She discovers theater at 8 in Montréal and hasn't left the stage since then. Back in France in 2000, she joins the ACTEA theatre company and follows during 7 years the classes of the stage actresses Sandra Devaux and Solène Froissart. At 18 years old, with her high school diploma in hand, she moves to Paris by herself, and starts looking for her first acting jobs. Quickly she gets roles in short movies, and gains experience on film sets. You Had Never Seen The Sea offers Léa her first leading role in a feature movie. In 2010, she goes back to her first love: the stage, and is cast in a musical that played at the Théatre des Artisans. She'll become a resident comedian in this theater for one season. Then she studied her art in different brilliant schools like Le Studio Pygmalion and l’École Internationale du Mime Dramatique. Today she finishes her training at the school Jacques Lecoq, based on the movement study, and is creating her own company with a first time directing experience in sight.
