Although her obvious good looks and Hollywood connection -- her mother now works for Lucasfilm -- made her a prime candidate for the spotlight, Leila initially opted for a career behind the scenes. Upon graduating from high school, she moved to San Francisco, where she dabbled with both graphic designing and photography before becoming a make-up artist.
A tight-bodied beauty whose comely figure no doubt
played more than a passing role in building television's
zany Son of the Beach a dedicated following, actress
Leila Arcieri also possessed a killer comic timing that
perfectly accentuated the show's anything goes air of
anarchic comedy. A San Francisco native who was raised
by a single mother in nearby Sebastopol, in her youth
the shy youngster forced herself to join the
cheerleading squad as a means of coming out of her
rather durable social shell. Dabbling in modeling by the
time she reached high school, Arcieri relocated to Los
Angeles following graduation in order to pursue a career
in graphic arts, photography, and makeup. Arcieri soon
found herself the winner of the 1997 Miss San Francisco
contest, and with her newfound confidence, the
burgeoning actress would subsequently decide to pursue
modeling and find frequent commercial work. When Son of
the Beach writer/producer/star Timothy Stack was
searching for an actress of both remarkable beauty and a
great sense of humor, he knew that he had found his
woman when he auditioned Arcieri. Though she had
appeared in a few small roles before landing her Son of
the Beach role, it was this role that would find Arcieri
cast in such high-profile releases as XXX (
Another point of interest is that shyness was a major obstacle in Leila's life, one that she tried to overcome by throwing herself into high-school cheerleading. The plan obviously worked, because soon thereafter she was out and about, and is now a much more extroverted and self-assured person.
Her other film credits include B-movies such as Hot
Boyz, Foolish, Beverly Hood, and Higher Ed. Leila also
has her own online business venture at
www.exoticspices.net, a website featuring hot models
that she manages, proving that she's got a full plate on
her hands with many goals yet to fulfill.
Leila continues to enjoy the single life (that's right guys, she's single) and prefers staying home with a good book than going out.
But for all the fuss that is made over her red-hot
looks, Miss Arcieri says she doesn't want to veer off
"She's America's sweetheart, yet she hasn't had to become a s-- symbol or use her body."
Luckily for Leila Arcieri, she too has enough talent to secure a very promising future!
Leila is busy auditioning for movie roles and was recently approached by MTV to be a year-round VJ. We wish her all the best.
