The first thing you notice about Leah is she is a no-spin zone - the good kind. Ask a question and she gives you a straight and honest answer. It's a reflection of her years in the industry reading and evaluating scripts. But more than that, it's a true reflection of an industry pro; someone who has seen what being disingenuous can lead to - unrealistic expectations and misunderstandings that becomes heartache and heartbreak as you try to navigate an industry (Hollywood) that you don't understand.
She does understand it oh so well.
The amazing thing about Leah is that this honesty can make some people sound cynical and mean-spirited and Leah is nothing of the sort. She is open, always smiling, always ready to give someone a great tip. That was abundantly clear at our event before, during and after. (more after the jump)
