Who is Chelsea Leyland?
Alien, DJ, Actress & Epilepsy advocate.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
An actor and owner of a Sphynx cat
How did you get to be where you are?
I mostly put it down to universal luck and being in the right place at the right time but I also worked very hard to get where I did and I have, I think, focus and ambition that played a role in that.
If you could go back in time and give your 16-year-old self some advice what would it be?
Not to stress and worry as much because it will all work out ok. Life gets richer for every year you spend on the planet, even though the tougher moments can get tougher.
If the cupboard in your bedroom would lead you to another world what would your Narnia look like?
Probably an enchanted forest with sunshine rather then snow. I would have Sphynx cats everywhere serving tea on little tables made from mushrooms secured in tree trunk coves and carpets of bluebell forests everywhere.
By day you are a….? By night you are….?
A DJ…but more by night. I guess by day as of now I’m focussing on my projects with the, “Epilepsy Society,” also my acting and acting classes and I also take photos to keep my mind alive.
What was one of your favorite past projects?
I DJed the Holon museume in Tel Aviv, that was pretty amazing i’d say mainly due to the space I was playing in, designed by the incredible Ron Arad….it was pretty damn special!
What are you working on now? and what do you dream of happening in the future?
As of now I am working on my first project with “The Epilepsy Society.” It will be a 100 person Yoga practice in a converted church space and I will be DJing a live sound scape for the practice….it’s going to be pretty magical. I’ve also designed an exclusive yoga unitard which will sell exclusivsly for “Farfetched” to help raise money for Epilepsy. I hope this event will kick start my awarness campaign for Epilepsy and also encorage others to use yoga and mediation as tools to help them cope with their struggles. I am also focussing on acting right now along side my doing, that is where my heart truly lies. In the future I dream to be acting and doing what I love, I also want to start my own essential oil company and wouldnt mind having a chocolate company too.
What song do you love that you keep secret cause its too embarrassing to say publicly you like it?
Hmmmmmm so many heres one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYMxOzxKYYo although my boyfriend knows I love this, as he does too, so it’s not even a secret really. It’s just the title that kills me HAHAHA!!
Which version of “ You are always on my mind” do you prefer, The Pet Shop boys or Elvis Presley?
ELVIS all the way!! He’s too sexy for words and I’m a HUGE Elvis lover.
Are you a morning person or night person?
Night, but lately I have been loving the early mornings…
Any advice for peeps just starting out?
Go for it….I think beliving in yourself plays a big part of it and if your hearts in it then you are far more likely to suceed at it.
Is there a quote or mantra you live by?
Manners don’t cost anything & there’s always time to be kind.
