STORIES . ARE . IMPORTANT

Recent and Upcoming
Hello! My name is Keely Smith. I am a Chicago based actor, an awesomely nerdy Star Trek enthusiast, and I absolutely love storytelling. Stories can change or affect the world, or just one person... and either outcome is a success to me.
I hold a BFA in Acting from Northern Illinois University. Although my first two years in Chicago has been much different than I imaged, with COVID-19 keeping most (if not all) acting opportunities remote. I have been enjoying the opportunity to spend more time focusing on my voice acting career.
I am looking forward to diving into the Chicago market more when it becomes safer to work in person and exploring all the various mediums that appeal to me as an actor. As an avid gamer (yes I know, my nerd is showing... it's great right?!) it is a goal of mine to work on voice over for video games in the future.
I am always interested in making new connections, so please feel free to message me and, if you want, tell me your story!

HAPPY 2022 EVERYONE!
Excited to kick of the new year, starting with a NEW CHARACTER DEMO! Soon to be recorded, hopefully I'll have it out by February. In the meantime have a listen to my character sample demo at the top of the page! ^^^

Recently finished up Detour, a cute little videogame, available on itch.io, in which I play an adorable space fairing chipmunk named Melody.
