Her father was a director of a textile company, and her mother, who trained at RADA, ended her acting career in order to become a full-time mother. She is the eldest of four privately educated children. After leaving school, she became a trainee fashion buyer at Harrods, before playing truant one day to go to an audition which led to her becoming a chorus girl, and then appearing with Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl at The Prince of Wales Theatre in London.
Leon appeared in several of the Carry On films and has been a Bond girl twice: in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and the “non-official” Never Say Never Again (1983). Other supporting appearances include Revenge of the Pink Panther, The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer (as the secretary Tanya), a hotel receptionist in The Italian Job, and a stockings clad callgirl in No Sex Please, We’re British, alongside fellow Carry On actress Margaret Nolan. The 1971 Hammer horror film Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb offered Leon a rare lead role, as a reincarnated Egyptian queen.
On television, Leon is probably best remembered for her part as a tall sexy buxom woman with a whip driven wild by a small and puny man wearing Hai Karate aftershave, in a series of commercials for the product. She also appeared in The Saint, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), Up Pompeii!, The Avengers, Space: 1999, The Persuaders, and in The Goodies comedy episode “It Might as Well Be String”.
Leon was married to the television comedy producer, Michael Mills from 1974 until his death in 1988. The marriage produced two children, a boy, Leon, born in 1975 and a girl, Merope, born in 1977, who is a journalist on The Guardian newspaper and currently editor of the Weekend supplement.

Just amazing… I've always liked Dr Who, even when it was rubbish, I'd love to be a time traveller so I could become a millionaire (who solves crimes and stops wars etc…) but also to marry some of the most amazingly hot women from the 70's… 😉
