Ashley Leggat, a twice Gemini nominated actress, was born into a large family in Hamilton, Ontario.
Ashley never actually walked -she danced, so when she was two and a half she started Baby Ballet - and she fell in love. This was the beginning of Ashley's passion for dance. Until she graduated from high school, Ashley danced competitively in the top divisions in tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, acrobatics, lyrical, musical theatre and hip hop. Ashley excelled in all aspects of her dance career, but another passion had already taken her heart. When Ashley was just eight she heard about a summer school acting program at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton and insisted that she had to attend. Theatre became Ashley's second passion and without hesitation, she auditioned and won the coveted role in her first professional theatrical role of "Marta" in The Sound of Music.
Ashley is heavily involved with children's hospitals, spending her spare time fundraising for McMaster Sick Kids Hospital, Toronto Sick Kids, and Manitoba Hospital for Children. She is also a huge advocate for anti-bullying, and has toured across Canada to help the cause. She most enjoys spending time with her family and close friends, and her "fur-baby" Teacup Yorkie, Rambo - who has also had cameos in many of her TV shows and movies.
