Profile: Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter)

Leela Lomax (Kirsty-Leigh Porter)

If you're wondering who that blonde firecracker is who's bouncing around the village setting everyone to rights, that'll be Leela - the eldest of the Lomax girls. She's sexy, feisty and confident, and she's not one to be crossed; she could start a fight in an empty room.

She seems intimidating with her brash attitude and loud mouth, and she'd rather die that show weakness (not that anyone's asking, so that's good).

Leela's an energetic tomboy at heart, but she does love getting all dolled up for a night out with her sister. And no matter how much she protests, she absolutely adores rocking her Abba dance routines with Tegan.

After a long day of turning heads and being tough, Leela likes nothing more than going home, playing pranks on Peri and nicking other peoples' sweets. Sure, she's a little scary, but she's a good'n at heart!
