Zelika Chante born and raised in Brooklyn New York, fell in love with acting at the age of 11 when she recited “Mother” a Langston Hughes poem that got her into her school’s drama program. After that moment she knew she was meant to be on stage.

Zelika started honing her craft studying at H.B. Studios and multiple acting schools throughout New York City. When Zelika is not in front the cameras she can be found working behind the scenes. In addition to acting, she has also written, directed and produced her own film Bend the Universe.

After performing in numerous theater productions and film projects, Zelika is ready to share her talents and enthusiasm with the city of Los Angeles. With strong work ethics and her own individual efforts she can always be found on stage or a film set somewhere. Check out this website frequently to see when and where she’s performing. Zelika is not chasing her dream, she’s living it!
