Chelsey's Actor Demo Reel
Chelsey has acted in Feature Films and TV series in Canada, China and the US.
Chelsey was the lead role of Felix in a Chinese version of The Odd Couple at The National Centre for the Performing Arts(2012) in Beijing. After studying with famous Chinese theatre director Guwei on The Odd Couple, the project paved the way for him to embark on his acting career: Harbin Story (2013), Chasing Love (2015), The War of 1945 (2015), Army of Descendants (2016), The Tutor (2016) and Hometown on the Cloud (2017) followed in the years after his theatre role.
In 2018, he returned home to Manitoba roots perfecting his acting craft while dedicating his time to training, grant/script writing and filming future projects. Relocating to Canada brought big rewards, with Chelsey becoming an Actra member while filming Stand! (2018) and Fatal Friend Request (2018). He finished off the year in China filming the feature film Variant (2018) as the Lead Villain.
2019 was very gracious to Chelsey booking roles on Amazon Prime’s Tales from the Loop (2019), CBC’s Burden of Truth (2019), APTN’s Tribal (2019) and feature film The First Encounter (2019). One of the major highlights was receiving one on one direction from Academy award winning director Jodie Foster while filming Tales from the Loop.
Chelsey filmed a monologue in True Colors (2021) written by David Chiu, booked a lead role in the TV movie First Person Shooter(2021) and an appearance in Hallmark’s A Kiss before Christmas(2021).
He won an ACTRA Manitoba Award (2022) for Outstanding Performance in a Feature in First Person Shooter.
