Leah Baulch is an Australian actor and creator with Australian-German heritage.
She grew up in Canberra, Australia, and is a graduate of 16th Street Actors Studio and Actors Centre Australia. Her work across stage and screen includes performing Shakespeare’s works internationally for AIP, Secret City (Fotxtel/Netflix), Alanna Valentine’s political thriller MP, and multiple projects for ACT theatre companies including Jigsaw Theatre Company and The Street Theatre.
With a background in theatre-for-young-people and the classics, Leah developed an interest in creative producing in between acting roles. Inspired by the actor-focussed film movements of Mumblecore and Mike Leigh, she created several short film projects before moving to Melbourne in 2012.
Upon graduating the fulltime program at 16th Street Actors Studio, she initiated The Actors Theatre Collective (as co-Artistic Director), whose activities included the staging of play-readings, a film festival, and several smaller theatrical productions (Heirloom – Glen Eira Festival; Cowboy Mouth).
In 2020, she released Hangs web series, a four-part dramedy. Recent performance work includes comedy series High Grades (Honeycomb Productions), Pygmalion (Australian Shakespeare Co) and We Were There (Chapel Off Chapel).
A producer, writer and actor, Leah is also a post-production editor and voiceover specialist.
