Chelsea Makela Interview

By: Sindy

Sindy:: Can you tell me how you got into acting?

Chelsea: When I was ten years old, I did a play in middle school and since then I’ve been working on my craft with workshops and trying out for auditions. I was really lucky because I moved to L.A. in my junior year and managed to score a great agent—then I trained at Second City, doing improv workshops and classes to really get a feel for the L.A. scene.

Sindy:: Cool! Tell me about your new movie.

Chelsea:Dance Flick is a spoof-comedy making fun of teen dance movies and musicals. The main character is a rich, suburban white girl who moves to the rougher part of town. My character, Tracy, helps get her into some misadventures. (laughs)

Sindy:: What’s Tracy like?

Chelsea:She’s socially clueless, so it was really fun to play her. She thinks everyone enjoys having her around, but she’s a bit of an airhead.

Sindy:: What was it like working with the Wayan Brothers?

Chelsea:They’re incredible, and so much fun—I learned a lot. They were all very supportive and obviously hilarious.—comedic geniuses, for sure.

Sindy:: And Amy Sedaris?

Chelsea:She’s the sweetest person ever. And so so funny.

Sindy:: What was the audition process like?

Chelsea:They made me say my lines so many different ways, like once they were like—“Now act like Madonna just walked in the room and do it that way!” And they asked if I could dance, and at that point I didn’t know it was a spoof movie, so I said of course! Then I ended up dancing all Broadway style to DMX gangsta rap! (laughs)

Sindy:: You got to meet Cameron Diaz!

Chelsea:I did! I met her on the set of a show called Teen Nick. She was so sweet, it was like hanging out with a girlfriend—she’d be amazing to work with.

Sindy:: Who else is on your dream co-star list?

Chelsea:The Wayans were on it, that’s the funny thing! I would love to work with so many people — Leonardo DiCaprio, Angelina Jolie, Martin Scorsese, Jim Carey, Adam Sandler — all the movers and shakers of Hollywood.

Sindy:: Would you like to keep doing comedy?

Chelsea:I’m open to more comedy for sure. I’d also like to do some dramatic features—I’d like to do both throughout my career, drama and comedy are both so wonderful.

Sindy:: Any advice for other young people trying to act?

Chelsea:Get your name out there. I’m a big believer in letting people know you’re here—promote yourself! I also have a great team and a wonderful publicist, so make sure you work with fantastic people.
