Photos with Seli Marset
Seli Marset is a Los Angeles-based actress with international roots who has appeared on hit dramas such as Days of Our Lives and CSI: Miami. She is attached as a main character in the upcoming feature film, Heartstorm and has completed the short suspense thriller "Borderline" with award-winning cinematographer, Phil Méheux. Experiential learning is a lifelong endeavor for Seli, who does not deviate from her maxim, "No risk, no reward." Seli was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany. Read more... in London, England. In addition to English, Seli is a native German speaker, fluent in Turkish and conversational in French. This diverse background and global perspective only accentuates her unique qualities. An intrepid traveler, she frequently visits sites off of the beaten path in order to garner a larger cultural awareness of all walks of life. She has explored the lifestyles and landscapes of Israel, Cuba, Costa Rica, Scotland, Ireland, Colombia, Egypt, Spain, Italy, France and Denmark. She considers herself at home in four distinctly different cities across the world: Los Angeles, London, Hamburg, and Antalya (Turkey). "I consider myself a global citizen... a child of this earth. I have never felt the sense that I belong to just one culture or country." Seli strives to be authentic, even if that means being different. She believes this is where her passion for acting stems from. "I get to live hundreds of different lives in one lifetime. Since I was a child with a colorful imagination, acting is the only true thing that excites me." She also attributes her early love for acting to her parents, who loved the arts and took her and her siblings to the theatre to see plays frequently. She grew up watching her father, a singer and guitarist, perform and attended schools with a focus on the arts. In addition to obtaining her BA in Drama & Theatre from LSU in London, Seli attended workshops at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. In LA, she has studied under the phenomenal acting coaches Howard Fine and Steve Tietsort at The Imagined Life, before joining the "actor's gym" at the Playhouse West. Among some of Seli's favorite projects was her work on the short film "Borderline," in which she played a Mexican-immigrant-turned-ghost. She was also cast as Princess Jasmine in Buzzfeed Production's "If Disney Princesses Were Real," with an over 10 million viewer number. She looks forward to filming the feature Heartstorm, in a key role which she says "represents hope, strength and will be an inspiration for many women across the world." With an affinity for the unpredictable and fantastical, Seli says one of her dream roles would have been to act in the Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, though ultimately she relishes any acting opportunity to leave people "feeling moved, happy and more deeply considering their own lives."
