Well hello there! I'm Chelsey Maus don'tcha know!
Well hi there, I'm Chelsey Maus (pronounced mouse!) and as my acting teacher once said, "I bring an element of humor into everything I do." Or as my sister likes to proclaim, "You are so dramatic!" Which is probably why my all time favorite role thus far has been when I got to play Lucinda (one of the ugly step-sisters) in Into the Woods. Why you might ask? Is it because I finally found a character that allowed me to explore the deep, dark depths of a human being's soul? NO! It's because I got to wear the biggest, brightest, most obnoxious pink dress 5 year-old Chelsey could only dream of wearing. Dreams really do come true everybody!
In all honesty I love to laugh at life and see others do the same and I am off to a great start! I have had some incredible training at Anthony Meindl's Actor Workshop, The Groundlings, Killian's Commercial Workshop, The Commercial Class (Alyson Horn Casting + Ross Lacy Casting), and let's not forget about that lovely B.A. in Theatre Arts from Pepperdine Unversity. But let's get to the point of why you are here. You're asking yourself. How do I cast this girl? Well let me tell you! I am going for what I call the quirky best friend because I think every character needs a little pizzaz at all times.
Some other fun things about me are I was born and raised in a small town in Minnesota don'tcha know! Well yea sure you betcha! Do I really talk like that? Not really; I've been in California too long at this point, but I can dig it out for ya at any time you like for your viewing pleasure;) Another fun fact is I may be late to the game but I have recently become a huge dog-lover. I didn't even see it coming until I met the goober pictured here with me and now I am that obnoxious person who screams, "Dog!" every time I see one pass by.
Though I live in Los Angeles right now, I am a true Minnesotan at heart. Therefore, I visit home as much as I can to participate in all the wonderful summer and winter activities! While in L.A. I try to keep a little piece of MN with me such as making tater-tot hotdish. If you don't know what hotdish is hit me up right here! That way we can discuss the wonders of Midwestern cuisine and how I can best fit all your casting needs:)
