SHOW STOPPERS

WE CAUGHT UP WITH OUR RESIDENT 'HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS,' THE SUPER TALENTED MISS LEILA RAOUFI OVER A GLASS OF FIZZ...


What’s been your favourite Schloss moment to date?

I performed the toast at midnight on NYE 2016 and watching everyone's faces cheering followed by an explosion of confetti was really exhilarating. I got a bit choked up during the countdown to be honest!

What’s your favourite Schloss supper?

I love the grilled salmon with pickled orange and beetroot it's so fresh and tangy.

What’s it like to be part of our Haus Of Schloss entertainment team?
It's a wonderful, wild collaboration. We're like one big family sharing and exchanging ideas. When it's show time and we are all creating energy together and sharing it with the crowd - it's priceless.

What song best describes you?
Jump In De Line by Harry Belafonte

Where would you go in a time machine?
I'd like to go back to the 1940s for the hot jazz, amazing bias cut fashion, cabaret, victory rolls and a rocking red lip.


Who is your celebrity crush, dead or alive?

I'm crushing on Alexander Skarsgard at the minute. I like Scandinavian/Viking types.

Are you any good at accents?
I was always naturally good at accents, it's about being a mimic. I guess I'm just a silly parrot.

What’s your creative inspiration?
I'm an avid traveler and always immerse myself in the culture of other cities I visit, from museums, theatre and live music. It inspires me to have a global imagination.

If you were a cocktail what you be?

Espresso martini. I'm dark and mysterious but smooth and soft on top

What’s your average Monday?

Mondays are wonderful, especially when you work weekends, I sleep late and slug out on the sofa watching movies with my cat.

Tell us something about you that Schlossers might not know?
I'm half Persian half Welsh. 100% Mancunian!
