Erin (twin sister)
|In Twilight saga|
She grew up in Victoria, a small city on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada. She has a twin sister, Erin, who lives with her husband in Doha, Qatar.
Gibson and her sister began dancing at the age of four, marking the beginning to her many years of training and performance in such dance forms as ballet, modern, contemporary/lyrical, jazz and Broadway jazz. It was through dancing, in combination with her incessant and persistent passion for singing, by which Leah discovered her love for musical theatre. In her graduating year, Gibson transferred to a high school specializing in fine arts. Though the school was on the other side of town and outside of her district, cross-boundary transfer stipulations were immediately excused by the principal after taking one look at her grade transcripts.
In her graduating year, Gibson performed in four musical theatre stage productions, (including her first lead role, as Velma Kelly in Chicago); the senior vocal jazz and concert choir, the high school dance troupe, as well as continuing to train and compete with the Sinclair Academy of Performing Arts—and all while maintaining honour-roll grades, graduating at the top of her class.
Following graduation, Gibson went on to the University of Victoria where she studied psychology. She was among the select few who were invited to study under the UVIC Honours program.
She is currently in a relationship with actor Adam Beach.
Her life took a major turn of events when she was simultaneously cast in her first professional production with a national touring company. She withdrew from university in preparation for company rehearsals, but within 2 months the company lost its funding and the show was cancelled. Having missed the university class enrollment cut-off date for the following semester, she moved to Vancouver to pursue film acting.
Within 6 months of signing an agent, Gibson booked her first lead role on a feature film—The Cycle, starring Daryl Hannah. Other work within her first year include such projects as the Hollywood blockbuster Watchmen.
Gibson's career has grown exponentially since. She is currently featured as a recurring character on the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica, and appeared in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse as the vampire Nettie.
When Gibson is not working on set, she occasionally still performs on stage, singing and dancing at local venues in Vancouver.
