Ohjaajaltahan se oli todella nerokas perseily:
"For his preparation as the titular hitman (aka cleaner), Reno deliberately played Leon as slightly mentally impaired or emotionally stunted man, as if he were a young child stuck in the body of an adult. Reno felt this was necessary for the audience to remain on his side and believe he could never pose a physical or sexual threat to Mathilda. For scenes that called on such taboo subject matter, Reno allowed Portman to control the emotional tone."
