Leila Arcieri

From her sizzling small screen role in Howard Stern's top-rated show Son of the Beach to breakout feature performances in the hit comedy Daddy Day Care with Eddie Murphy and the action-packed, box-office smash, xXx, Leila Arcieri is proving there's more to this former Miss San Francisco than meets the eye.

Leila most recently was seen guest starring on two episodes of the UPN's hit show Kevin Hill in November 2004. Her performance was so terrific that they asked her back to shoot additional episodes, which will begin airing in March 2005. Her character will be the love interest to Kevin Hill (Taye Diggs) and will be much like what 'Mr. Big' is to 'Carrie' in Sex and the City.

Prior to signing on for King's Ransom, Leila took on a role that demonstrated her dramatic range starring opposite Adrian Grenier (Hart's War, Artificial Intelligence) in the psychological thriller A Perfect Fit. As 'Sarah,' she plays the love interest to Grenier's character 'John,' an unstable man whose psychological problems are masked when they meet. Unaware that John is secretly monitoring her computer activities to position himself as her ideal man, Sarah unknowingly falls into a dangerous relationship that spirals out of control as John heads deeper into, psychotic territory when he is unable to continue to control the relationship.

A stunning multi-cultural beauty, Leila landed six national commercials including AT&T, Starburst and the Bud Light Super Bowl campaign with Cedric the Entertainer in her first year in front of the camera. She also appeared in videos for musical heavy hitters Sean P. Diddy Combs and Boyz II Men. Feature film roles soon followed including parts in Wild Things 2, George of The Jungle, and The Parent Trap.

Before stepping in front of the camera, Leila put her creative skills to work as a graphic designer, photographer and make-up artist - learning the biz from behind-the-scenes. She also studied her craft with renowned coaches Susan Batson and Leslie Kahn to prepare for the transition into the spotlight.
