Liesl grew up in a small town, in Australia's NSW, called Bellingen, where she spent her time studying ballet and modern dance while also learning to play the piano and violin. Upon turning 18, Liesl moved to Sydney to pursue a career in modeling, which quickly took her to Paris and later to New York, where she was featured in multiple campaigns. During this time, she studied acting at NIDA, Lee Strasberg, and Stella Adler while performing in various theatrical productions in Australia. The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks reunites Liesl with Peter Glanz, with whom she worked on the short film A Relationship in Four Days.
