She studied political sciences in Frankfurt am Main and then went on to study drama at the Konrad Wolf Film University Babelsberg. Freelance acting work took her to establishments such as the Hans Otto Theater in Potsdam and the Landestheater Schleswig-Holstein. In 2013, Leoni appeared at the Schaubühne Berlin in Volker Lösch’s dramatization of Draußen vor der Tür (The Man Outside). She also played a supporting role in Katrin Grebbe’s film Tore tanzt (Nothing Bad Can Happen), which was officially selected for the Cannes Film Festival in 2013.
