Biography

Born in Winchester, Hampshire, Leonard began his career as a stage actor, often working in musicals, though he was also frequently seen in Shakespeare plays, including Richard III (on two occasions), The Merchant of Venice and Twelfth Night (in which he played Malvolio).

Leonard also made several onscreen apoearances, in television programmes such as The Bill, Coronation Street and Sherlock as well as films including Gambit and Les Misérables.
