      Hailing originally from the Atlanta area, Kelsey Scott began her career as a child actor on the sitcom "The Robert Guillaume Show" (ABC 1989-1990). Following the show's brief 12-episode run, Scott worked sporadically in Hollywood over the next two decades, including a role in the college drama "Chocolate City" (1994), while concentrating on her schooling and appearing in regional theatre productions and a touring company of the Broadway hit "Dreamgirls." After graduating from Florida A&M University's School of Journalism and Graphic Communication, followed by a master's from Florida State University's College of Motion Picture Arts, Scott moved to Los Angeles to once again pursue her show business dreams. After time spent as a script consultant for a number of production companies, Scott created the first screenwriting curriculum at Golden West College in Orange County, CA, at the age of 25. One of her scripts was filmed as "Motives" (2004), starring Vivica A. Fox. It proved successful enough to spawn a 2007 sequel which Scott once again penned, with Fox reprising her role. 2009 began a resurgence of work for Scott on-camera, as she began working in a variety of indie films and television series, while she also worked on her own web series "Hollywood Girl" (2010). The program gave Scott a chance to truly stretch her creative wings, as she worked as writer, director, producer and even camera operator on various episodes over the next three years. Scott's mainstream breakthrough came with Steve McQueen's powerful "12 Years a Slave" (2013). Having originally read for a smaller role, she instead co-starred opposite Chiwetel Ejiofor as Anne Northrup, the wife of a black man sold into slavery in the Antebellum United States.
