Star of “Legends of Tomorrow”
A natural talent with undeniable beauty and poise, British actress Maisie Richardson-Sellers is quickly establishing herself as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after new talents.
Richardson-Sellers can next be seen opposite Joey King and Jacob Elordi in the sequel to the Netflix phenomenon THE KISSING BOOTH, which Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has referred to as “one of the most-watched movies in the country, and maybe in the world”. Releasing later this year, she will portray “Chloe”, a seemingly perfect college girl whom Noah (Elordi) befriends during his first year at Harvard University. This will follow her big screen debut in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS directed by J.J. Abrams.
She can also be seen in the hit series DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, which is currently in its fifth season on The CW. She portrays the pansexual shapeshifter “Charlie”, a new character that was written into existence just for her following her initial appearance in the first two seasons as superhero Vixen “Amaya Jiwe”. Fans have praised her groundbreaking role as a welcomed triumph for diversity and inclusivity. Additional television credits include The CW fan-favorite series THE ORIGINALS and the ABC Biblical series OF KINGS AND PROPHETS.
Not only is Richardson-Sellers a star on screen, she has owned the stage in a number of theatrical productions, including: MEPHISTO, CHATROOM as well as West End’s 3WOMEN in London. While at University, she also directed numerous acclaimed stage productions, the first being FOR COLORED WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE, which at a young age had inspired and ignited her passion for the transformative power of storytelling.
In addition to her thriving acting career, Richardson-Sellers will be launching her own production shingle this year, Barefaced Productions. The company will work to bring the stories of and about those who are often marginalized by the mainstream to light, with a focus on the diversity of experiences of people of color and the LGBTQAI+ community. Barefaced Productions will also ensure gender and racial inclusivity and diversity during every stage of the creative and filming process. And as if that wasn’t enough, via her production banner, she recently co-wrote and directed her first short film, SUNDAY’S CHILD, which tells the story of a young and isolated queer, first generation woman during her journey to self-acceptance.
Richardson-Sellers is an alumnus of the University of Oxford where she first proved her multifaceted talents with a degree in Archaeology and Anthropology. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
