Writer Biography - Chelsea Javier

Hi! I'm an actress and writer from Los Angeles, CA. I can be spotted in a handful of commercials and indie projects, and most recently co-wrote and played the lead in the upcoming comedy feature Smile or Hug from Justin Baldoni's production company, Wayfarer Studios.

I co-wrote Smile or Hug with my husband, director/writer Paul Sprangers. Our script was one of five winners from the 6 Feet Apart Experiment, which awarded filmmakers $50k to make their first feature during the pandemic (shot in November 2020).

I was also a semifinalist in the Women in Film x Blacklist 2019 Episodic Lab for my pilot "Halloween Club", which combines my love of dark comedy with 90's nostalgia.

Writer Statement

I wanted to write something that addresses the fears that I (and probably many other women as well) feel around catfishing, stalkers and rejecting unstable men, combined with my love of dark comedy, rollerskating, and disco. Mostly fiction, but also there is some true stuff in there...enjoy. xx
