Leah Gibson was born in Victoria, British Columbia. She began dancing at the age of four, which led to training and performance in vocational interests, such as ballet and many forms of jazz. In early years of dancing and singing, she discovered musical theatre. She transferred to a high school that specialized in fine arts, maintaining honor-roll grades and graduating at the top of her class.
Gibson studied psychology at the University of Victoria, among the select few who were asked to study under the UVic honours program. She was simultaneously cast in her first professional theatre production, and withdrew from university. The touring company lost its funding within 2 months, and the show was canceled. Gibson consequently moved to Vancouver in pursuit of a career in film acting.

That same year, she portrayed the supporting role of Silhouette's Girlfriend in Zack Snyder's Watchmen, as well as a role in Happy to Be Here (2009).
She continued her television career in Stranger with My Face (2009), and appeared as the character Hannah in two episodes of Riese (2009). In 2010, Gibson played Nettie in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and was also attached to the cast of A Night for Dying Tigers. From 2010 to 2011, she starred in the two short films The Metal Box (2010) and The Fence (2011). In 2010, she also played a minor character in the TV movie called Betwixt. Gibson portrayed the avatar Emmanuelle on 'Caprica (2010), which accredited three episodes. She then made a guest appearance as Palomino on Supernatural in the episode "Two Minutes to Midnight".
