About Keely

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 as it is becoming 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 has always been a goal of mine to work in 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!

My FIRST in person casting since the pandemic began! I am thrilled to be getting back on the stage performing in the cast of Starship Edsel, premiering at the Otherworld Theatre in Chicago! The nerdiest theatre in Chicago is putting on this hybrid improv show starting in October that you can see in person OR online in livestream format!
