A gifted writer, comedian and actress, Léonard charmed alongside Guy A.

After winning another Gémeaux for her role on "Vice caché" (TVA, 2005-07), Léonard was nominated for a Best Actress Jutra Award for her performance in "L'âge des ténébres" ("The Age of Ignorance") (2007) as the unfaithful, workaholic wife of an unhappily daydreaming civil servant (Marc Labrèche).

Despite her success in films, Léonard found her greatest successes on television, including memorable turns as a cooking-show guru on "Les soeurs Elliot" (TVA, 2007-08), "Le gentleman" (TVA, 2009- ) and "Les Boys" (Radio-Canada, 2007-2012), based on the widely popular film franchise.
