Leah Remini played the role of "Carrie Heffernan" in the popular sitcom The King of Queens for nine years. Since then the actress has been quite busy, be it as a talk show host or the host of her very own reality show in 2014.

From 1998 to 2007, Leah Remini (49) played the role of "Carrie Heffernan" in the sitcom The King of Queens. "Carrie" works as a paralegal in Manhattan and lives in Queens, together with her husband "Doug Heffernan" (Kevin James, 54).

For a long time the series inspired an audience of millions, but was discontinued after nine years of broadcasting. Reason enough to wonder what Leah Remini is actually doing today.

The actress was with Scientology for a long time, but left the church in 2013. Since 2016, Leah Remini has been producing the TV documentary series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, which now has several seasons.
