About Leesa Rowland
Most acclaimed actors have interesting backgrounds, but few are as unique and wide-ranging as cult film star and philanthropist Leesa Rowland. Shortly after Leesa finished her acting studies at the world-renowned Steller Adler Studio in Los Angeles, she gained a following after being cast as Victoria in Troma Entertainment’s 1992 cult film classic, Class of Nuke ‘Em High Parts 2 and 3, and she also appeared in the sequel Return To Nuke ‘Em High, which aired on The Starz Network in 2013.
Leesa is also known from Troma’s television USA Network series Troma’s Edge along with Lloyd Kaufman and Debbie Rochon, and from her role in Travis Campbell’s Slaughter Daughter as Phyllis Adjani, an eccentric mother who drives her daughter to insanity. Not only did the film win the award for best feature at Orlando’s 7th Annual Freak Show Film Festival that same year, it led to a co-starring role in the critically acclaimed web series Two City Girls opposite fellow Troma actress Lisa Gaye, as well as appearances on the Oxygen reality series Jersey Couture in 2012.
Beyond her extensive career and credits as a film and television actress, Leesa is the author of the best-selling self-help/motivational book Discovering the It Factor within You: Developing Your Charismatic Personality, which was published in 2015. She is also well-known for her work as a philanthropist and animal rights activist. A vegan dedicated to healthy eating, she has been active with the national non-profit organization Last Chance for Animals since 1989 and is the president of the New York non-profit group Animal Ashram, which she founded in 2013.
