Born and raised in Virginia and Maryland, Erin Leigh graduated from Shenandoah Conservatory with a BFA in Musical Theatre and then went on to receive a Master's in Shakespearean Acting from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. Her first love is live performance and she has been honored to repeat many of her stage roles multiple times.
After having a taste of the film industry in Baltimore, Erin Leigh moved to Atlanta, GA where her film and television career has taken off. Most notably, her appearance as the Jawless Zombie in the AMC smash hit TV show The Walking Dead (season 1 episode 4) has landed her some notoriety as well as allowed her to return every season on the show.
As well as being a working actor, she enjoys costume design, which she has pursued in her spare time. For fun, Erin enjoys making fun clothes and accessories with her best friend, Sara, at their company Quirky Skirts. She and Sara also have a YouTube channel with their own Quirky Skirts web vlog.
