Leandra Leal’s career is what you can consider a mathematic phenomenon by the sheer number of works accomplished in such a short amount of time. At 33 years old and with a career that spans 32 years (she first stepped onto a stage in the arms of her mother, the actress Angela Leal, in the role of a baby), Leandra has collected 29 awards, the majority of them for her work in cinema, placing herself amongst the most disputed actresses in Brazil. Presently, the actress has participated in 24 films. In TV, the total between novelas, series and mini-series comes out to 29 projects. In theater, 7 projects. But Leandra is more than an actress. She has directed plays and music videos and, through her production company, Daza Cultural, holds the annual Festival Adaptação, which explores the relationship between cinema and literature. She is also directing her first documentary, “Divinas Divas,” a musical film about the first generation of Brazilian transvestites.
