That One Audition with Alyshia Ochse

Apr 28, 2020

Today, I am joined by the transformative talent that is Leonardo Nam. Over the course of the next hour, you will hear how Leo found his way as a young actor growing up in Australia, how he relentlessly hustled in NYC, and how he built the career of his dreams, starring in shows like Westworld and working with the Duplass Brothers on Room 104.

Whether he’s auditioning for Hamlet still wearing his rollerblades or deciding to eat a turkey sandwich DURING his audition for The Perfect Score, the studio film that changed his life, Leo has faced every chapter in his career with a sense of adventure and a brilliant connection to his instincts.

Recent notable credits for Leonardo include the DC Universe series "Swamp Thing,” Amazon’s "Sneaky Pete,” and the Arthouse film “Hummingbird." He has also recurred on titles such as the Amazon series “Betas,” and has appeared on “The Flash,” Disjointed,” “Hawaii 5-0,” “Royal Pains,” “Bones,” “Franklin & Bash,” and “Stalker.” His breakout role came in the Paramount Pictures comedy “The Perfect Score,” starring Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, and Erika Christensen. Since then, he has gone on to star in a string of movies, namely “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” 1 and 2, “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift,” “Vantage Point,” “He’s Just Not That Into You,” and “One for the Money."
