Leah Renee stars as Alice, the married Bunny at the club with a big secret, in NBC's provocative drama "The Playboy Club."
Raised in Etobicoke, Ontario, Renee was featured in more than 50 commercials by the time she was 15, and was highlighted on the pages of countless catalogs and magazines.
"I Was a Sixth Grade Alien," was her first recurring television role. Additional television credits include "My Babysitter's a Vampire," "Blue Mountain State," "True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet," "M.V.P," "Runaway," "Degrassi - The Next Generation" and "Snow Queen."
Renee has lent her voice to numerous characters, beginning with the role of Beaver in the animated series "Franklin the Turtle." Other characters include "Growing Up," "Creepie," "Atomic Betty" and "Stickin' Around."
Also a talented singer, Renee is currently working on her debut album set for release in fall 2011.
She currently divides her time between Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
To the outside world, Alice appears to be the perfect 1960s American housewife: a sensible, modest and thrifty partner to her husband Sean, who is a talented young politico with a bright future ahead of him. But appearances can be deceiving. In actuality, Alice is a lesbian; Sean is gay; and their "lavender" marriage is a carefully contrived performance to hide the truth of their sexuality from a world unwilling to accept them for who they are. A large portion of Alice's earnings from the Playboy Club goes toward funding for the Chicago chapter of the Mattachine Society, a secret national organization working to end discrimination against gays and lesbians. Alice hopes that someday she'll have the courage to come out to her friends and colleagues at the Club, but she has no idea what their reaction might be. It's only a matter of time before her secret gets out.
