Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Brampton, Chelsey made the decision to go after her dreams of working in the film industry at the age of twenty-three. Once considering a career in writing, she would write short stories, character bio's, poetry, lyrics and scripts while growing up and would showcase it to her family and friends. Her love for VHS films had a heavy influence on her, especially films that involved SFX , robotics, and/or a dramatic change in character. After years of experimenting with many different creative outlets such as singing, makeup, performing, photography, editing software's and writing, she developed a dream of meshing all her passions together and join the exciting world of acting and film making. She began this journey by joining the Toronto Film Schools Acting Program for Film Tv and Theatre. She graduated with Honors and since then, she has appeared in numerous projects in front and behind the camera and is always excited to learn new skills and to collaborate and share ideas with like-minded people. Chelsey is used to wearing different hats on and off set, including but not limited to, acting, writing, directing, BTS photography, production design/prop design, wardrobe, voice over's and editing.
Her most recent accomplishments are, landing a leading role as Mallory in the upcoming comedy/horror short film My Dinner With Chuck (2019) directed by Joe Parente and written by Spencer Sinclair, her very first short film that she wrote, co-directed, edited and starred in, was showcased to the students of TFS March (AMBER, 2018) and was later accepted into the Toronto Film School Festival of Films (Aug 2019) and was nominated for Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance and Best Screenplay. Some more recent accomplishments of hers is a horror/comedy short film that she had directed and co-wrote, and is in post-production (2019), acting in a music video for a successful band called Francis Farmer, directed by the talented Michael Uccello that will be released in 2020 and also being involved as lead actor in a commercial /ad for a unique gym called Sweat and Tonic located in Toronto at Yonge and Shuter, that just opened November 2019 and will be spread across social networks in 2020.
In addition to those many achievements, she has had the privilege of being involved in a dry for wet VFX shoot and she has sufficient training in vocal work, movement and theatre, landing her first role as Ghost of Future in the play adaptation Totally Scrooged directed by the famous Caroline Smith. Chelsey looks forward to honing her skills further, and developing new ones and to keep creating art and building characters through which she can express herself. She is always eager to push her abilities to the fullest and to work with others in a respectful and professional manner.
