Stephanie Leonidas (born 14 February 1984) is an English actress. She is perhaps best-known for her roles as Helena in the fantasy film MirrorMask and as Irisa on the American science fiction television series, Defiance.

Biography

Leonidas was born in London, England to a Greek Cypriot father and a British mother. Her brother Dimitri Leonidas and sister Georgina Leonidas are also actors, and her other sister Helena is a teacher.

Leonidas started acting in community theatre when she was eight; at nine she acquired an agent and began to work in television.

Notable credits include the television drama Daddy's Girl, the soap opera Night and Day and a 2004 episode of Doc Martin in which she plays Melanie, a local Portwenn 15-year-old girl who develops an unhealthy fascination with the surgeon. More recently she has starred in Neil Gaiman and Dave Mckean's MirrorMask in the dual roles of Helena and the Dark Princess, and a BBC adaptation of Dracula, as well as Crusade in Jeans. Her theatrical roles have included Adela in a production of Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba at Coventry's Belgrade Theatre, and Dani in The Sugar Syndrome, staged at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London, in 2003. In this latter production, reviewer Lizzie Loveridge said she gave a performance "way beyond her years".

She has also starred in the BBC made for TV film Atlantis, which aired on BBC one and BBC one HD on 8 May 2011. In 2011, she was in a play for the Transatlantyk Festival called "Influence", written by Shem Bitterman. More recently, Leonidas has once again teamed up with Dave Mckean to work on a new film entitled Luna, expected to be released sometime in 2013.

Helena (Stephanie Leonidas) works with her parents (Gina McKee and Rob Brydon) at their family circus, but desires to run away and join real life. At the next performance, after Helena and her mother have a heated argument, Helena's mother collapses and is taken to the hospital. Ten days later, while Helena is staying with her grandmother, she finds that the doctors determine that Helena's mother requires an operation, and Helena can only blame herself for the situation. That night, she wakes up in a dream-like state and leaves her building to find three performers outside. As they try to perform for Helena, a shadow encroaches on the area and two of the performers are consumed by it. The third performer, Valentine (Jason Barry), a juggler, helps to quickly direct Helena to safety through the use of magical flying books. She learns they are in the City of Light which is slowly being consumed by shadows, causing its widely-varied citizens to flee. Soon Helena is mistaken for the Princess. She and Valentine are taken to the Prime Minister (Brydon). He explains that the Princess from the Land of Shadow stole a charm from the City of Light, leaving their White Queen (McKee) in a state of unnatural sleep and the City vulnerable to the Shadows. Helena notes the resemblance of the Queen and Minister to her mother and father, and offers to help recover the charm along with Valentine. They are unaware their actions are being watched by the Queen of Shadows (also McKee) who has mistaken Helena as the Princess of the Land of Shadows.
