Chelsea Eze Career
Chelsea grew up as an introvert, but she learned to speak and express herself by joining the literary and debate club of her secondary school. She never saw herself as an actress, as she first wanted to be a lawyer, then a doctor, and an aeronautical engineer. So you can say acting came to her by chance.

Her friend introduced her to the industry when she asked her to accompany her to Emem Isong’s movie shoot. During the shoot, Emem Isong wanted to see how she would look on the camera, so she did an audition for her.
She looked good on camera and was told she would be contacted if the need arises. This whole event took place sometime in 2007, a year before she graduated from university.
In 2009, Emem Isong’s friend, Vivian Ejike, required a supporting actress who had the same physique as Chelsea for a movie, Silent Scandals, but couldn’t get any popular actress that fit the cast.
Emem Isong remembered Chelsea’s audition and called her to audition for the role. She aced the audition, got the role and the rest is history.
