Leech is prob­a­bly most known as Tom Bran­son on the award-win­ning series from Ju­lian Fel­lowes, Down­ton Abbey, which ran for six sea­sons on PBS and ITV, and earned three Golden Globe Awards, 15 Prime­time Em­mys, and a BAFTA Spe­cial Award and 69 Emmy nom­i­na­tions, mak­ing it the most-nom­i­nated non-U.S. series in Emmy his­tory. (Its movie will pre­miere in Septem­ber.) In par­tic­u­lar, his prom­i­nent role has gar­nered 3 Screen Ac­tors Guild Awards for Out­stand­ing Per­for­mance by an Ensem­ble in a Drama Series while his lat­est role as Fred­die Mer­cury’s per­sonal man­ager Paul Prenter in Golden Globe-win­ning Bo­hemian Rhap­sody has ac­cu­mu­lated ma­jor buzz from crit­ics. De­spite the awards and suc­cess, Leech’s claim to fame be­gan on a much smaller stage many years ago.
