In life news, I'm looking forward to getting married this September to my amazing fiancé Bryan!! <3 Things have been pretty busy on the personal side and I may be sloing down on the professional side for a couple months! See you all on the other side!


  • Cosmic Dawn is in development! Look out for my character Lexi and future developments for the show!

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 am a Chicago based actress, I hold a BFA in Acting from Northern Illinois University. Although my first year in Chicago was 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!
