Biography

Chelah Horsdal was born to hippie parents surrounded by loved ones in their family home, Head-Acres. Her father is a well-known Canadian Folk singer and the family traveled across the country with him for the first three years of her life. After her parents divorced, mother and daughter moved to Vancouver and found a home in the community of Kitsilano, where Lindsay established herself as a well respected Yoga teacher. Chelah attended Bayview Elementary followed by Lord Byng Secondary, where they are known for its strong drama program.

At eighteen, she started modeling and appeared in a couple of locally shot shows and commercials before relocating to Caribbean for a year. Upon returning to the West Coast in 1995, she took the long route back to acting... first landing at Whistler to assist in design and launch the newest restaurant for the Mescalero Group. This presented with responsibilities and was a learning experience in itself about promotions and marketing, allowing her to launch the successful catering division and make special event planning and chairing high profile and successful fund-raisers such as 1997's A Great Date.

In early 1998, she created Spacific Affair Event Production and Consultation. During its three year life she returned to the Caribbean to design a restaurant, coordinated the West Coast millennium celebration for Roots Canada and continued to produce parties and host charity functions.

In 1999 she came to a new aspect of design, with the premier issue of Film Fly Magazine, where she acted as editor, creative director and writer at large. Finally, after a year working as a voice-over agent and learning the business side of the film industry, Horsdal was unable to deny the artistic need for her first love, acting.

Since late 2001, she has appeared in numerous short films, over fifty commercials, a handful of feature and made for TV movies and multiple TV series, and despite a sometimes busy work schedule, she continues to study her craft at Lyric School of Acting with the likes of Michele Lonsdale Smith, Kate Twa and Ben Ratner.

Her TV credits include series and miniseries such as Andromeda, True Calling, Human Cargo, Da Vinci's Inquest, Cold Squad, The 4400, Supernatural and Smallville. In 2005 she was cast in a guest spot in the pilot episode of Quantico, which she remembers, proved to be the most challenging and powerful acting experience she had had to date. When that show premiered in the fall was under the title Criminal Minds. That work led her to her first recurring in the show Stargate: SG-1 as Lt. Womack. From there, guest and recurring roles would intertwine in places like Whistler, Psych, Battlestar Galactica, The L Word, Exes & Ohs and Eureka among others.

On the big screen, she has had the opportunity to work in films as known as The Pink Panther, X-Men: The Last Stand, Fallen, Passengers and Helen, to name a few.

In was 2004 when she made her stage debut for In The Company Of Productions in Tennessee Williams' play Summer And Smoke.
