Alice Pieszecki

Played by Leisha Hailey

Alice Pieszecki

Alice is a talk show host who’s determined to use her position as a queer female in the late night space to send out a meaningful – but still funny – message as far and wide as possible. She swears she wants a stable, monogamous home life, and has been able to achieve it for the most part, but she can’t seem to stop feeling like something might be missing. Through everything, she remains an incredibly loyal friend to all, and Shane and Bette in particular.

Leisha Hailey

Leisha Hailey grew up in Bellevue, Nebraska, and began acting at an early age, appearing in many local productions. Encouraged to pursue the craft, she earned admission to and graduated from the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. 

Hailey made her film debut in Fine Line Features’ memorable 1997 independent feature ALL OVER ME. She has appeared in many television shows (SILICON VALLEY, BOSCH, BOY MEETS WORLD, CSI, GREY’S ANATOMY, SUPERNATURAL, DROP DEAD DIVA, THE NEW NORMAL), but it was her breakout role as series regular Alice Pieszecki on THE L WORD® that gained her critical acclaim. 

Her passion for acting is matched by one for music. She recorded three albums for MCA/Universal Records with her first band, The Murmurs. Her most recent band, Uh Huh Her, has toured internationally and sold albums worldwide.
