Mini Bio (1)
Leigh was raised in the heart of Cajun Country in a very active family who loved sports of all kinds. Her father, Jeff Hennessy, was the trampoline coach at the University of Southwestern Louisiana, now the University of Louisiana in Lafayette. He taught his children a variety of athletic activities such as water skiing, motocross, diving and the art of trampoline.
Leigh's love of trampoline took her all over the world representing the United States in countless international competitions. She earned multiple national and world championships during her career.
After receiving a Master's degree at UL and working on Capitol Hill as a staffer for Congressman James A. Hayes (D-LA), Leigh eventually translated her athletic career into a film career as a stunt woman and actress. Her first feature film was Bad Boys (1995) where she doubled 'Tea Leoni' diving out of a speeding car. Her big break came when she doubled 'Demi Moore' in G.I. Jane (1997) throughout the film doing an array of military-style stunts, as well as fight scenes with 'Viggo Mortensen'. She also had to shave her head to match Moore's.
In both Charlie's Angels (Charlie's Angels (2000) and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003))movies, Leigh doubled 'Lucy Liu' performing one of the highest falls for women in the business -- over 90 feet. In the first Charlie's Angels (2000) movie, she was part of the trio of extraordinary stunt women who performed the historic fall together. Unfortunately, the scenes were cut from the movies.
In 2007, Leigh was nominated for a World Stunt Award for her work in the opening scenes as a drowning victim in The Guardian (2006) with Kevin Costner.
