Chelsea Hobbs was born in Vancouver, Canada and entered the world of film and television at just eight years old. As a child, Hobbs filmed over 80 commercials. Her first big break came when she starred alongside Bridget Fonda in Hallmark Channel’s timeless mini-series “Snow Queen,” earning her a best actress Leo award nomination. It wasn't long after that she booked her own pilot, starring in FOX's Save the Last Dance. Hobbs then graduated high school early through home schooling and moved to Los Angeles alone at the tender age of 17.
Over the next several years she made a name for herself in Hollywood starring in various TV films and guest starring on hit shows such as “CSI,” “The L Word,” “CSI: Miami,” “Cold Case” and HBO's “Transporter.” Hobbs was also fortunate to work alongside the late Heath Ledger in Sony Picture's feature film Lords of Dogtown, which has since become a cult classic.
It was her lead role as underdog Emily Kmetko in Freeforms hit gymnastics drama, “Make It or Break” that solidified Hobbs’ presence on the small screen. Following this success, Hobbs had her second child and moved back to Vancouver to raise her two children as a single mother.
Hobbs had a recurring role on season three of the Emmy nominated Lifetime/Hulu series “UnReal,” guest starred on “Girlfriends Guide to Divorce,” “Rogue,” “Lucifer,” “Motive,” “Supernatural,” and “Take Two,” as well as several films including Tosca Musk's adaptation of Ruth Clampett's bestselling novel Mr. 365. Hobbs is continuing to have a solid career excelling as an actress and is brought her own material to big and small screens with Jovanna in 2019. She was most recently seen in Hallmark Channel’s “The Holiday Sitter.”
