Reference from Des Matelske, the Director or Swipe Right: "I had the pleasure of working with Leigh on the set of my film “Swipe Right” and she is an absolutely fantastic person and actress. She showed up early to her call times and was always very patient between camera setups and long shoot days. Leigh has the skills to pull and push the audience’s emotions and has definitely enhanced the overall film by taking on the character she played and making it exactly what I imagined in my head. I hope to one day work with her again!"
