Lesley was born and bred in Glasgow until she and her family moved to the Yorkshire town of Harrogate at the age of seven. She returned to Scotland to train as an actor in 2001 where she lived and worked for a few years before moving to London to make that her base. Lesley is the creator of the YouTube comedy series ” Emmy Talks ” Verbatim conversations with her 3 year old, performed in earnest by adult actors out of context. It is quite brilliant.
