ADRIAN ROSE LEONARD
Member of Puppeteers of America and UNIMA-USA
President of the Los Angeles Guild of Puppetry
Adrian has built and manipulated puppets of various configurations since the start of her career in 2006. Her puppetry can be seen in the Dreamworks film Captain Underpants, Adult Swim’s Mr. Neighbor’s House, the feature film Yamasong: March of the Hollows (currently in the festival circuit), as well as on Mtv’s first season of Greatest Party Story Ever. She's also proud to have puppeteered on the award winning short film Mill at Calder’s End, produced by Heather Henson’s Handmade Puppet Dreams, and she’s worked with directors such as Kirk Thatcher, Cat Solen, and Zoe Bell. Adrian also had the honor of working at the legendary Bob Baker Marionette Theater when first living in LA. From theater and web series to television and films, Adrian continues to master her craft and explore the many avenues that such a unique profession can provide.
Adrian is a bit of a work-a-holic, so when she's not performing, she's fabricating! She builds puppets of all kinds, from stop-motion, to hand and rod puppets, working with such studios as Screen Novelties, Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, and Rick Lazzarini's Character Shop. If she's not at a shop, she can be found doing free-lance work for theater and various other projects. She loves the challenge of new work and takes advantage of any opportunity to learn new skills or perfect old ones.
