The director Reza Badiyi was her mother’s second husband and was at the time her step-father. in 1983 Leigh had a small role in the Rodney Dangerfield movie Easy Money, playing the eldest of two daughters, who marries a man that Rodney disapproves of. in 1990, Leigh made a significant career breakthrough when she was voted the year’s Best Supporting Actress by both the New York Film Critics Circle and the Boston Society of Film Critics for her portrayals of two very different prostitutes: the tough streetwalker Tralala who submits to a brutal gang in Last Exit to Brooklyn, and Susie, a teenage prostitute who falls in love with ex-con Alec Baldwin in Miami Blues. As Hedy, the psychotic “roommate from hell” who steals flatmate Bridget Fonda’s identity and boyfriend and commits murder with a stiletto heel, Leigh created a memorably vulnerable and frightening character, and was awarded the MTV Movie Award for Best Villain and nominated by the Chicago Film Critics Association for Best Actress.

Leigh has an older sister, Carrie Ann Morrow, who was credited as a “technical advisor” in Georgia, and on whom the role of Sadie Flood was reputedly based. Leigh worked in her first film at the age of nine, in a nonspeaking role for the film Death of a Stranger (The Execution) (1973). At 14, she attended Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Training Center in Loch Sheldrake, New York summer acting workshops given by Lee Strasberg and landed a role in the movie The Young Runaways (1978). Reviewers commented on Leigh’s raw emotionality and apparent lack of vanity in her performances, especially in Last Exit which controversially featured prolonged scenes of sexual violence. Leigh reportedly told director Ron Howard that she wished that she could be the fire because it had the film’s best role. Arguably Leigh’s finest performance was in the role of Sadie Flood, an angry, drug-addicted rock singer living in the shadow of her successful older sister (Mare Winningham) in Georgia (1995). The story of intense sibling rivalry and the problems of drug addiction within a family are reputedly based on Leigh’s sister Carrie (who is credited as “technical adviser” on the film) and her relationship with Leigh as the more successful sister. Turner, Leigh and Morrow have made no public comment as to whether the film is biographical.
