Alexis Leighton

Alexis trained at the RSAMD in Glasgow and worked extensively in Scotland as an actor and director with The Citizens Theatre, Scottish Opera, TAG, Tron Theatre, Traverse and Dundee Rep as well as STV and BBC Scotland.

In pursuit of sunnier climes, Alexis moved to London and the rest is history.

Alexis works as an actor, voice-over artist, role-player and simulated patient.

Always up for a challenge, Alexis has played a variety of curious characters in an extensive range of projects. Most fun? Playing Myrtle the Mermaid in Christmas Cat and The Pudding Pirates. Most challenging? Playing Miss Margarida in the one woman show Miss Margarida’s Way. Most bizarre? Having to take a pig for a walk on a lead for a stills campaign for Scottish health.

Alexis is thoroughly looking forward to joining the team at Extreme Psychiatry. Having observed a session on psychosis, the teamwork, expertise and learning environment just resonated and luckily an opportunity to participate has arisen.
