Ada Nicodemou Biography

Ada Nicodemou stars as Leah Patterson on Home and Away, a girl with a big heart and an even bigger ability to talk. Ada, born on May 14th, 1977, was born and raised in Sydney. As a kid, Ada went through phases but says that she always wanted to be famous and successful in whatever she did. Her first break in television at 13 years of age, funnily enough, was on Home & Away. Unfortunately she missed out on a role that went to Laura Vasquez. She did however do some 'extra' work on the show, which gave her the opportunity to see the behind-the-scenes workings of a television series. At 15, she auditioned for a new show called Heartbreak High and in March of the following year, when she was about to turn 16, they called her in for a 12 week guest stint. This short stint turned into a 3 year role where she played a character called Katarina. In July 1999, at 21 years of age, she returned to television and took up the role as Fiona in Breakers. She then took a short break from the show to do a cameo role in the film The Matrix, (1998) starring Keanu Reaves. Ada lives at home with her family which consists of her mum and younger brother. In her spare time she likes going to the movies and spending time with friends, dancing and keeping fit by enjoying the great outdoors and walking everywhere. One thing that does distinguish her from her character is that she not a cook. 'I am about the worst cook in the world. Mum has always done the cooking and she is brilliant so I have always left it up to her, but hopefully I may pick up a couple of tips through Leah.' She says. To top it all off, Ada was nominated for the highest achievement in an actor's career- a Gold Logie at the TV Week Logie Awards last year and was nominated once again this year.
