Adama Niane plays Leonard, one of the villains in the French mystery horror series Lupin, which airs on Netflix. The character appeared in two volumes of the series. Hubert Pellegrini recruited Leonard as an assassin, and he killed Babakar Diop and Fabienne Beriot while kidnapping Raoul Diop. Leonard is a villain known for his ability to hunt down and kill anyone with ease. He used a variety of methods to kill his victims, including hanging, to make it appear that the victim had committed suicide. He is always willing to hurt anyone and wants to kill Raoul despite Pellegrini’s request not to harm him.
Leonard has always been good at improvising, but things take a turn for the worse when Pellegrini becomes annoyed about his tendency not to stick to his plans. He sent Pascal Oblet to kill Leonardo and blame Assane. Leonard has been a criminal since 1995 and has also experienced prejudice. Lupine, created by George Kay and Francois Uzan, aired on Netflix on January 8, 2021. On June 11, 2021, the second season of the series was released.
