Family & Companions
This young supporting and occasional lead player, of the late 1980s and early 90s is the son of 60s pop/folksinger Donovan and brother of actress Ione Skye. Leitch, who has also worked as a model, began his film career as a dancer in the musical "Breakin' 2 Electric Bugaloo" (1984) and later distinguished himself with supporting roles in Chuck Russell's remake of "The Blob" (1988), Edward Zwick's "Glory" (1989) and Mary Harron's "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1996). He has frequently worked with his sister in such efforts as Allison Anders' "Gas Food Lodging" (1992) and two features awaiting distribution as of 1996: "CITYSCRAPES los angeles" and "The Size of Watermelons."
The handsome, dark-haired, slightly androgynous-looking actor has also worked sporadically on the small screen. He made his series debut on the NBC Saturday morning show "2 Hip 4 TV" (1988) and went on to make guest appearances on "21 Jump Street" and "Life Goes On." He also headlined the "CBS Schoolbreak Special," "But He Loves Me" (1991), as an abusive boyfriend. Leitch is also the frontman for the band Nancy Boy.
