Leah Remini Opens up to PEOPLE About Leaving Scientology: 'It's Like a Rebirth' - 2015-11-03
The former King of Queens actress, 45, had been introduced to the religion by her mother at the age of 8, and had been a member for 35 years. As a teen, she even spent a year living - and doing manual labor, including cleaning hotel rooms - at the church's Sea Org headquarters in Clearwater, Florida, which is reserved for Scientology's most dedicated members.
"I've been given a second chance at life and so has my family," Remini says. "It's like a rebirth."
