During these years she also sang in a choir, actively engaged in a dance group combining modern and classical dances, and was involved in karate and tennis.

Her first appearance in a feature film was in the 1999 film Madonna (Bogorodica, directed by Neven Hitrec). She graduated in 2001. A year later she was honored with the most significant film award in Croatia – Golden Arena for Best Actress – at the 2002 Pula Film Festival in the feature film Winter in Rio (Prezimiti u Riu, 2002).[1]

Since then Leona has acted major roles in over 30 films and TV shows. She performs frequently in the theater in leading roles that portray strong and powerful women. Leona also received three international awards for best actress in Dalibor Matanić's compilation of short films.
