Voice Actor Mae Whitman

Leslie Dunkling[1] (voiced by Mae Whitman[2][3]) is Leonard's love interest. She tolerates Leonard but likes Spot/Scott better.


She and Leonard were best friends since both were in daycare, and they were inseparable, until the fourth grade came and she decided to stop hanging out with him because he's a boy, and began hanging out more with the other girls in class. But they still remained good friends. Leonard has a crush on her, but he can hardly talk to her, often getting tongue-tied when trying to reveal his true feelings. Leslie's best friend is Younghee Mandel-Baum a Korean-American student who is also one of Leonard's many bullies. Leslie is the most popular girl in the class, particularly with the boys. Leslie is very rich, kind, sweet, and intelligent.


Leslie breaks the popular/rich girl stereotype, as she is not spoiled and talks to almost all the other students in class with respect.
