Los Angeles Post Examiner
Anne is an actress, singer, wife, mother, birth doula. Not necessarily in that order.
Anne re-joined the world of showbiz in 2010 after a 15 year absence to rear and homeschool her three young boys, and operate a successful childbirth education and birth doula business.
Since returning to performing, Anne has appeared in film,TV, and stage.
"Anne Leyden plays the half-sister Andrea and boy let me tell you, does an amazing drop at making me dislike her for about 1000 reasons. Don’t get me wrong, Anne did such an amazing job that I had a difficult time forgetting she is just an amazingly talented actress who played this despicable family member to perfection. I, several times, wanted to jump up on stage and slap her myself. Of course again there’s the amazing script and it was Anne who brought that ‘bleepiddy bleep’ to life and made me so emotional angry. Anne, I’m calm now…….Grrrrrrr. No really, Anne hit a home run with this performance. Grrrrr…."

"Fantastic, Pure Energy, Drama of Passion With A Comical Family Heart – Theatre West’s “Family Only” Is Absolutely Riveting!”
-Pat Taylor, The Tolucan Times
Anne is married to actor Bill Sehres. They are the proud owners of three young men, Jack, Charlie, and Seamus Sehres. In that order.
