He was educated at St Hugh’s Preparatory School, Bishop Wordsworth Grammar School, Oxford University (Lincoln College), and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, which he left last summer – since which time several people have actually paid him to act. In between acting, he has worked as a childrens’ entertainer, a receptionist, and a flyerer.
At Oxford he was President of the Oxford Revue, editor of Isis Magazine, a deeply ineffectual member of OUDS (Oxford University Drama Society), and a columnist for The Cherwell. The internet is, depressingly, littered with images of his wet face portraying Dorian Gray at the Oxford Playhouse in his third year. He got a 2:1.
Between the ages of 4 and 5 he refused to leave the house unless dressed as a jockey. He likes whisky, cookery, rock and roll, and falconry. He lives in Peckham. He is five foot seven. Which is the same height as Tom Cruise. But much taller than Prince. In your face, Prince! P.S. – not really, Prince rules – he can be whatever height he pleases.
Leander Deeny also works as an actor. He graduated from LAMDA in 2006. He is represented by Roxane Vacca Management.
