A Los Angeles native, Netahly (Neta-lee) Leddel spent her earliest years trying to follow in her mother's footsteps as a ballerina. By age 6, she'd realized she had more sucess as a joker than a dancer, so she shifted her energy over to acting. Her father, no stranger to being the neighborhood clown, remembers walking her to school in only his boxer's and Jesus sandals. She must have gotten her charm and finesse from him. Her fondest childhood memories are of creating detailed characters, which she'd dress up as and talk to in the mirror of her room. As if that isn't creepy enough, she took them outside and pretended to play with make believe company. By 1990 , Netahly was SAG eligible and busy working on film. She went on to get her B.F.A at a very small prestigious school in Seattle, Cornish College of the Arts. Today she is a working actress and jazz vocalist.
