Lesley Aletter was brought up in the entertainment business with acting parents, mother Lee Meriwether and father Frank Aletter. With an older sister, Kyle Aletter, who also had the acting bug, Lesley, of course, tried to follow that same road. But with the ups and downs of getting one job to losing another, then it seemed that she didn't enjoy the family style of being in front of the camera. At least the acting part. But being on sets her whole life with her mother, from TV shows like Barnaby Jones (1973) and Star Trek (1966), and the movie Batman: The Movie (1966), it instilled the ways of how to perform and create, in and around movie sets.
Having doubled the likes of Sigourney Weaver, Lucy Lawless, Minnie Driver, Brooke Shields, to name a few, she couldn't ask for a better job then being a stunt-woman. Lesley is also on the board of The Stuntwomens Foundation, a non-profit organization to help injured stunt-women.
