Chelsea was nine-years-old when she discovered Valley Youth Theatre and landed the role of Marta in The Sound of Music. She also appeared in Peter Pan, The Wiz, Cinderella, Oliver, Schoolhouse Rock and Titanic, but her favorite role was Mary Lennox in The Secret Garden.
She currently stars in Baby Daddy, a half-hour series about Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) who becomes a surprise dad to a baby girl when she's left on his doorstep by an ex-girlfriend. Ben decides to raise the baby with the help of his mother, brother, best buddy and close female friend, Riley (Chelsea Kane), who is harboring a secret crush on him. Check local listings for Baby Daddy on ABC Family!
In April 2013, Chelsea starred in an ABC Family made-for-TV musical called Lovestruck: The Musical. The story is about a choreographer named Harper (Jane Seymour) whose daughter Mirabella (Sara Paxton) is the star of her next big production. But when Mirabella decides to quit and get married, her mother is determined to put a stop to the wedding. Harper takes a swig from a strange bottle to dull the pain of an old dance injury, but the elixir magically turns her thirty-years younger -- enter Chelsea!
