She learned her craft by performing in various shows in a touring theatre company in Poland. Since she moved into London in 2017, Leena trained with Gary Condes in Meisner acting technique, at Identity School of Acting, and with various screen acting teachers like Faye Beck, Alisdair MacKay, and Christopher Hanvey. Makoff is a part of Maktub Theatre Company and 5Go Theatre Co. She performed in various shows in Drayton Arms Theatre, Camden People’s Theatre and Theatro Technis. She practices her screen acting skills weekly with Anarchy Actors Studio hoping to work more in front of the camera from now on. She has experience in working as a radio station host and VO artist back in Poland. Hummus i Bigos – the play she wrote in Polish before moving to the UK, has its run planned for Autumn 2021 in Warsaw. Some of Makoff’s favorite things are chatting about spirituality, doing yoga and watching RuPaul’s Drag Race. The themes that interest her in her writing and devising projects are equality, feminism, self-development, and trauma healing. People often describe her as independent, confident, versatile and excitable. Leena is currently doing her MA in Acting at the University of East London to bring more theoretical knowledge to her practice.
