|Leah Banning on Olympus Has Fallen|
|Nationality:||United State of America|
|Played by:||Radha Mitchell|
|Film:||Olympus Has Fallen|
Leah Banning is a nurse at a Washington D.C. hospital and the wife of Mike Banning, the main protagonist of Olympus Has Fallen.
Leah is shown to be a supportive yet stern wife. She always reminded Mike that he needs to quit worrying about his past which resulted in the death of the First Lady. She also told him that they needed to go on their honeymoon they never had and he needed to quit being such a workaholic, as it won't solve his problems.
Leah realizes that her husband Mike is concerned with his job and only wants him to be happy. When Mike reflects upon his transfer to a desk job in Washington, D.C. and how he's not going to be able to make it to one of her parties hosted by her friends, she tells him that she understands and wants him to just do something fun with his pals this week. Mike then offers her to take her out to a movie this week among other social events.
Later on, after the taking of the White House, Leah tends to the care to those brought to the hospital as a huge number of injured patients came in. She notices that she's missed a call from Mike and is left in the dark on whether or not he is one of the various people killed or if he is possible still alive since the cell phones we're locked out due the attack. During that night, she watched the press conference of Speaker Allan Trumbull, who is The Acting President of the United States since President Benjamin Asher and Vice-President Charlie Rodriguez are held hostage in the White House.
As Leah was tending to the care of one of her patients when a nurse comes in and tells her there's someone calling for him. She tells her nurse friend to give the guy some morphine before going to take the call, suspecting it was Mike. After Leah gets the phone, Mike says to her that he's just checking in. Leah expresses her relief that he's alive and says how's his day been. He's only says to her that he's been really busy. Leah replies to her husband that she has been busy as well. When Mike asked his wife if she was okay, Leah replies that she had to stay in the hospital longer than she thought. Leah, suspecting that Mike is in the White House, asked if he was going to come tonight and Mike says he will, since they got a honeymoon to go to. After Mike says that he has to go, he doesn't tell her that he is in the White House, as he didn't want to worry her. After he tells his wife that he loves her, he hangs up as Leah remained deep in thought.
At dawn, Leah waited an ambulance. Then she sees Mike coming out of the White House with President Asher. As Mike was about to be treated, Leah comes to him. Then she and Mike embraced.
