While growing up in Vancouver, British Columbia, Tyron often explored his creative side as a child through building things, such as tree forts, bicycles and eventually a log cabin, which he and his mother and brother actually lived in for three years. At the age of 18, a talent scout stopped him on the street and asked him if he wanted to be in commercials, he didn't say yes immediately, but eventually took up the offer.
Leitso was quickly immersed into the world of modeling and commercials, with acting taking a back seat for a few years. But the urge to perform in front of a camera never left him and, after taking some training and working as an extra on many of the Vancouver based productions such as the "X-Files" and "Millennium," casting directors began to take notice.
His television experience includes roles in UPN's "Breaker High," USA Network's "First Wave," TNT's "Shutter Speed," CBS's "The John Denver Story" and the NBC/PAX series "Mysterious Ways." Tyron also had one of the lead roles in the first season of the CBC teen drama "Edgemont Road," which began airing in Canada in September 2000 and now airs internationally.
Tyron also starred in two major projects for ABC Television and Hallmark. He played the lead role of ‘Prince Alfred' in the live action remake of "Snow White" and lead role of ‘Karl' in the three-part mini-series "Dinotopia."
Tyron also co-stars opposite Sarah Polley in the feature "My Life Without Me," produced by Oscar winning director Pedro Almodovar and has a lead in the feature "House of the Dead" which will be distributed in October, 2003.… Expand
