1. Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Chelsea Claire and I am a professional film actor and art model, and I am a proud mother of a beautiful little girl named Marley Rose. I will be 29 on December 12th and I am looking to make the move to LA early 2014.
2. How did you get your start?
I got started as an actor in 2010 when I got asked to be in my first film called Pizza Shop the Movie. I played the part of the bitchy cook, Jenny. I have always wanted to be an actor, and when I wasn’t receiving much attention from the local agencies, I started looking for work on my own and I have had the opportunity to work on many great projects since. I have been in comedy, drama, a psychological thriller, a few web series, and a few music videos. About a year ago, right after I had my head shaved in a music video by El Sonida de Reposa, I did my first photo shoot with Dave Kelley, and I have really built an interesting portfolio that I am very proud of. I have had the opportunity to intern on a local digital radio station, GratRock Radio, and in February I have the chance to act in my first sketch comedy troupe, The Sic Sense. I was also in a band at one point and I really do miss that outlet very much.
3. What inspires you?
Passion. Drive. RAW emotion. LOVE. Art in all forms. My daughter. Riding my bicycle late at night and listening to music way too loud. Making people laugh and hearing people laugh.
4. What do you like about AZ?
I have lived here off and on since I was 18 months old. I was born in Tulsa, OK and lived many of my formative years in Anahuac, TX. When I moved here in 2001 my intention was to graduate and go to school to be a Radio DJ then move to LA and audition as much as I can. Living here has given me the opportunity to grow as an artist and meet and work with so many talented people. I love to collaborate. I love networking. I have made many great friends here in the art community and I am excited to work with them all.
5. Where can we see you(r) work?
Short film by Devin Walter-Lost, We Three, Short film The Sound of Running Water, Music video shot by SPOOL. Artist: El Sonida de Reposa – “My Song Like The River“, Blackbook: The Series, Gratrock Radio as an Intern, and Lucidity Episode 6-Clearly Glitched (Drunken Mermaid #1).
6. What would you like to accomplish before you die?
I have a tough time answering questions like this because I don’t plan for the future. I just try to make art that means something to me and speaks from my heart and mind and experience and hopefully someone out there will get the message and it will touch them.
7. What is your mantra?
If you want something and you have a dream or a desire go for it. Don’t ever let anyone’s opinion influence what you are trying to accomplish.
