Leah Catherine Thompson is an aspiring young actor and singer currently based in southwest Louisiana. Her most recent acting role features Leah playing the lead character, Ruby, in director Phillip Jordan Brooks’ “Ruby and The Dragon”. The Louisiana Film Prize picked “Ruby and The Dragon” as one of its finalists for their 2013 $50,000 film prize. Though “Ruby and The Dragon” didn’t take all, the movie put a spotlight on Leah Catherine Thompson’s acting talent. Several critiques reviewed “Ruby and The Dragon” on the IMDb website, and nearly all of them had something great to say about Leah. Here’s the link to “Ruby and The Dragon” on IMDb:
Leah travels all over Louisiana putting on solo vocal performance shows at events like the Sarepta Christmas festival (managed by the Peggy Adkins, mother of country superstar Trace Adkins), the Beauregard Parish Fair, the Merryville Heritage Festival, Hodges Gardens Fallfest, and Backroads Country Favorites. Leah was also a guest on Linda Davis’ “On The Rise Music Show” in Nashville TN.
In 2013, Leah was a contestant in the Nashville Country Showdown and was invited as a special guest to entertain at the state finals of the Louisiana Country Showdown. Here is a clip of Leah singing at the event: Leah Thompson singing at Country Showdown.
Leah is the 2012 winner of Artbreak Idol, a talent contest held in northwest Louisiana that works just like the popular television show. The contestants are chosen through auditions and then eliminated throughout several rounds. Celebrity judge, Jason Castro, mentioned that Leah was his “favorite so far” in the semi-finals round of Artbreak Idol. Here is a clip of Leah at the semi-finals and Jason Castro’s comment afterwards: Leah Thompson at Artbreak Idol
Leah was cast as Annie in Peter Pan Player’s production of “Annie”. The playhouse enjoyed seven sell-out shows and added an eighth show which also sold out. While the show was in production Leah acted as a character host to a little girl’s birthday party. It was a rewarding moment for Leah because the little girl could not believe that the “real Annie” had actually come to her birthday party!
While Leah is at home she can be found practicing the piano, strumming on the guitar, planning her upcoming shows, posting videos for her YouTube fans, studying scripts for upcoming films, or helping clean the house (only because her mama said so). Leah loves riding her dad’s 4 wheeler in the woods behind her house.
