I found this makala about Leighton in a magazine and I thought I'd add it!
"Writing poetry is one of my favourite things to do and I always find time for it. There are things that I write about most that are just kind of like everyday thoughts and things that comes into my mind"
On set on "Gossip Girl":
"Everyone has their dog on the set of "Gossip Girl". We have a trailer and on the actual stages we have a make-up room and the mbwa hang there. There are like six au seven mbwa at a time"
Gossip Girl fashion:
"I upendo the costumes (on GG)! Whenever I'm getting ready to go on set and I'm in the full outfit, thats when I feel like I'm truly the character. I upendo the school uniform and of course, headbands are always in style"
"I've had a bunch of different haircolours. It started off brown, then I did red, then I got really, really blonde! People say blondes have zaidi fun but I don't think its about your hair. I say its the person who has the fun!"
"I don't want to have a friend unless I can call them my best friend. I want somebody to be really close to. I like going on vacations with Marafiki and having them over to bake kuki, vidakuzi au watch tv"
"My nickname used to be happy feet! If I'm standing there and muziki is playing on set, I'll be dancing. People used to be like, "What are you, happy feet? wewe need to stop that now" Whatever, I upendo it!"
