Lenny was the last of his family to attend a formal school, so when he was eight years old he got an education by making up his own.
Lenny was a talented actor who played the lead role in a number of TV shows, but when he went to the ABC Training Classes in Sydney he discovered he was actually more interested in what teachers said to him than what they did to him.
“They gave me a real test of whether I was really going to make it,” he says.
At first, Lenny had trouble getting into the classroom.
He was shy, was bullied and had trouble fitting in.
After a few years, he began to feel more confident.
The last class of the ABC training series in Sydney was held on March 6, 2019.
