1. Leo’s trained in the martial arts: “I have been doing martial arts since I was four, so ten years now. It’s my favorite thing to do! It has been my passion since I was little!”

2. Leo’s a fan of cooking: “I love to cook! I looked up on YouTube on how to cook and of course there was thousands of videos and I just started from there. I love cooking chicken, any type of chicken dish. Chicken curry is really fun to make!”

3. Leo’s favorite actors: “Probably Johnny Depp or Jack Nicholson, they are probably two of my favorite actors!”

4. Leo’s future movie goals: “I just heard about this movie, The Crow. Obviously when I am older, but that would be super cool!”

5. Leo’s is an antique sword collector: “I collect antique weapons like swords and knives and at the end of Conan they gave me the big Conan sword! That was so cool, I have it in my living room as the centerpiece of my collection.”

6. Leo’s does all his own stunts: “I do all my own stunts in both Conan and Kickin’ It, there was no doubles! I just love being involved in it.”

Plus as an added bonus, he has a super crazy bulldog named Bella, but Twi-Hards don’t think he is naming his dog after the beloved Bella played by Kristen Stewart, it was named well before the movies! He added, “Nothing against the Twilight films, her name was Bella before them.”
