Stephanie Leonidas is an English actress that started acting in community theatre when she was eight years old. Leonidas is best known for her roles as Helena in the fantasy film MirrorMask and as Irisa on SyFy’s “Defiance.” Most recently, she appeared in season two of Netflix’s “Feel Good” and ITV’s “Endeavour VII.”
