About Leslie Jordan

Leslie Jordan: The Unlikely Star Who Stole Our Hearts

Leslie Jordan is a force to be reckoned with. The diminutive actor, standing at just 4'11", has captured the hearts of audiences around the world with his larger-than-life personality and infectious charm. Born in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1955, Jordan's journey to stardom was anything but conventional.

After studying theatre at the University of Tennessee, Jordan moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams of becoming an actor. However, his flamboyant personality and southern accent made it difficult for him to land roles. It wasn't until he was cast in the hit TV show "Will & Grace" in 2000 that he became a household name.

Jordan's portrayal of the character Beverley Leslie, a flamboyant and wealthy rival of Karen Walker, earned him an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. He went on to appear in numerous TV shows and movies, including "American Horror Story," "The Help," and "The Cool Kids."

Despite his success, Jordan has faced his fair share of challenges. He struggled with addiction for many years and was diagnosed with HIV in the early 1980s. However, he has used his experiences to inspire others and raise awareness about HIV/AIDS.

Jordan's infectious personality and quick wit have made him a beloved figure in the entertainment industry. He has written a memoir, "My Trip Down the Pink Carpet," and has toured the country with his one-man show, "Leslie Jordan: Exposed."

At 66 years old, Jordan shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to captivate audiences with his unique brand of humor and authenticity. As he once said, "I'm not a star, I'm a character actor. That's what I'm meant to do." And we couldn't agree more.
