Kelsey Lea Jones

I am a young east coast based actress and commercial model with a passion for story telling. Born and raised in a little Maryland county on the outskirts of Washington DC, I grew up around good people who told great stories. It didn't matter if I was laughing or crying, I learned that stories were like medicine with the power to cure almost any emotional ailment. This is where my love for performing began.

As I have now found my second home in New York City, where I earned my undergrad and began my acting career, I continue to tell stories. I continue to laugh and believe me I cry - sometimes publicly on the subway - but that's just part of being a New Yorker right?

  • Recently wrapped as a series regular on the web series "Nuke City" (episodes released on Amazon in 2018)
  • Recently wrapped as the principal character in the film "Modern Shame" based on a true story (MODO STUDIOSScheduled release pending).
  • Excited to announce I will be playing EMMA in the Heartwood Regional Theatre's production of Down Along the Cove this spring and summer!

 I have been featured in numerous commercials, print work and online media including Elite Daily, Babys R Us, and Burger King. Check me out in this Burger King ad cheezin' for 'Mac-n-Cheetos'!

As you will see I play a lot of type A or neurotic female characters. My mom told me not to put myself in a box, but as children and great pretenders know, when you are in a box you can make it whatever world you want it to be.

So I climb right in and I play.
