What can you tell me about Leah Lail, the actress who plays the secretary on VIP? I think she's cute.

Kay Simmons, the character Lail plays, is the communications expert who controls all the moves of those elite bodyguards on VIP. And the actress is as intelligent as the character she plays. Lail, 35, was born and raised on a horse farm in Lexington, Ky., and attended boarding school where she studied political science and learned fluent German. That led to a college scholarship to study in Bonn, Germany. A political career wasn't in her future, though. Lail also loved the theater and transferred to the University of Southern California, where she graduated summa cum laude with degrees in German and theater and a minor in political science. Her credits include ER and Seinfeld. She also had a small part in the Adam Sandler film Little Nicky. She lives in Los Angeles.
