Leah McSweeney is sharing exciting news about what’s next for her career. The Real Housewives of New York City mom, fashion mogul, and author recently revealed that she was cast in her first film role for the upcoming thriller The Kill Room.
And that’s not all. Leah will be making her movie debut alongside a cast of A-list celebs, which, as Deadline reported, includes Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, Joe Manganiello, and Debi Mazar, among others. The announcement in Deadline also noted that Leah “will play Alisha, a VIP on the art scene” in the forthcoming movie.
This isn’t the first major career update Leah has shared in recent months. In April, the Married to the Mob designer also released her new book, Chaos Theory: Finding Meaning in the Madness, One Bad Decision at a Time, which chronicles some of the darkest and most challenging times in her life.
“It was also, in real time, as I was writing it, helping me make sense of these things that I went through. So it was really kind of therapeutic and cathartic,” Leah said during an exclusive interview with Bravo Insider in April. She also hinted at the possibility of continuing her work as a published author, saying in the Bravo Insider interview that her “first version” of the book had more stories that didn’t end up in the final version, adding, “Maybe that’s for book two.”
Leah’s latest career highlight adds to the list of her many achievements as of late, as she recently opened up on Instagram about what she had her sights set on for the future.
“My goal is to be the strongest I’ve ever been not only physically but mentally by my 40th birthday which is right around the corner,” she wrote in the caption of her May 17 post, alongside a video of Leah working out in the gym. She added, “I guess I should start planning the party soon! For me, my physical health and mental health go hand in hand.”
Leah also marked the importance of Mental Health Awareness Month during a National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) annual fundraiser event in New York City, where she served as grand marshal.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be a part of the [NAMI-NYC] family,” Leah wrote in the caption of her May 23 post, adding, in part, “We can’t deal with mental health issues alone and we are stronger together.”
