Who is Lesly Brown?
If it wasn’t for her husband, Lesly Brown would be only one common photographer of the many out there, but now she is Pat Sajak’s wife and a well-known celebrity. They tied the knot back in 1989 on the very last day of the year, and have been a couple and a family since then. However, at the age of 54, she has also accomplished some things by herself, working with the big Playboy brand and being an aspiring actress. Check out about her professional life in the following.
Not much information about Lesly is known, despite her rising popularity since 1989. For almost 30 years she’s managed to remain a mystery to the media. She was born Lesly Brown in Maryland, USA on 18 February 1965. Her parents, bearing this last name, are Michael and Maria. They were a big family, as she grew up with two sisters, Kelly and Wendy.
Academically, she prepared herself at the University of Maryland to fulfill her first dream of becoming an actress. She studied television production there, but never actually pursued this type of career.
First steps in the big world
Her first achievements were accomplished due to her natural beauty and ambition a long time before meeting her husband. At an early age, she was a model, beautifully crowned with the title Miss Georgetown. Moreover, in 1988 Playboy contacted her and proposed a photo shoot, which resulted in a very successful pictorial called “Women of Washington”. Shortly afterwards she gave-up modeling, but has recently participated in ads for Sandals Emerald Bay. The first appearance of this campaign was in February 2012 and other clips with Lesly were released in the same month of the next year.
Acting and photography
After giving up modeling, she pursued her childhood dream of becoming a photographer – her creations can be admired on her website www.lesliebrown.com, well organized in categories and types of photos. Lesly’s interesting style and capacity of surprising even the most experienced viewer can be admired in Architecture, Interiors, Cuisine or Couples albums. One of the quotes her activity bases on is ‘The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don’t have to explain things with words’, by Elliott Erwitt. She might have earned a lot of money and experienced beautiful moments through photography, as her portfolio is a vast and complex one.
At the same time, one of Lesly’s other passions is acting. Despite not being able to build a strong and remarkable career in this domain, she enjoyed working on stage and screen in some promising projects, experiencing another type of teamwork and visual production. “Wheel of Fortune” is the game show in which she was a guest three times, in 1997, 2008 and 2010. She had various appearances during the marketing campaigns of this show, including promoting a Wheel-themed jewelry line in 2008.
In 1988 when 23 years old, Lesly met her future husband, the prolific and popular actor Pat Sajak, who at that time was 42 years old. They first met thanks to a mutual friend, who made an effort to bring them both together in the same sports bar in California. At first they were reluctant to develop a romantic relationship, and only talked by phone. This long-distance type of communication helped them build a strong relationship between them, which developed into something more. Despite the gap in their ages, they started to date and shortly afterwards, in December 1989, went down the aisle. Their wedding was a private ceremony – the interesting fact is that Lesly’s parents did not even know about Pat’s popularity.
Children and family
They have together two grown-up children – their son, Patrick Michael James Sajak was born in September 1990, and is currently a stand-up comedian. His sister, Maggie Sajak is five years younger than him and is a singer. The biggest passion from her childhood was country music and she pursued a career in this domain. Playing guitar at the early age of 12 was definitely of great help for her. Then she learned to play the mandolin, ukulele and piano. Now she has released three singles, the first being called “First Kiss”.
