She grew up as an introvert, but she learned to speak and express herself during her secondary days, by joining the literary and debate club.
Being a young lady, she never thought she would become an actress because she initially loved to be either a lawyer, a doctor or an aeronautical engineer. Acting became her profession eventually. And how did that happen?
Chelsea Eze was during her tertiary school days introduced to the profession by her friend who asked her to accompany her to a movie shoot directed by Emem Isong in 2017. During the process of taking movie shots, Emem Isong asked Chelsea to go in front of the camera to see how she looked in front of it, and that was her first audition.
In 2009, Director Emem Isong’s colleague, Vivian Ejike, asked for a supporting actress with a certain physique which Chelsea Eze would pass for. Vivian Ejike was working on Silent Scandals, but couldn’t get any actress that fit the physique. It was then Emem Isong that referred Chelsea Eze to Vivian Ejike and Chelsea got her first role in the Nollywood movie industry.
