Jane Leeves is an English actress.

BiographyEdit

Born in Ilford, Essex, Leeves trained as a ballet dancer before becoming a model and being cast in The Benny Hill Show and as a dancer in Monty Python's Meaning of Life. She gained her first major recurring role in Murphy Brown before being cast as the Mancunian housekeeper Daphne Moon in the long-running series Frasier.

Leeves subsequently began working as a voice actress in films such as James and the Giant Peach and The Penguins of Madagascar. She also appeared in another regular television role as Joy Scroggs in Hot in Cleveland.

SingingEdit

Leeves has sung a number of times in a number of different mediums; on a number of occasions in her most famous role in Frasier (the most notable perhaps being duetting "Heart and Soul" with David Hyde Pierce), and three songs as the voice of the Ladybug in James and the Giant Peach.

Leeves also contributed to the charity album "NBC Celebrity Christmas" performing "Winter Wonderland", and the following year appeared as Sally Bowles in the Broadway production of Cabaret.
