Chelsea Muirhead expresses gratitude to the film festival community and her hometown Toronto

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, January 20, 2023 / — Toronto native Chelsea Muirhead is thrilled to be back home after filming her upcoming role in the highly-anticipated HBO series “Warrior” in South Africa. Being back in the city she calls home has allowed her to reconnect with her roots and appreciate the community that has supported her throughout her career.

As a rising star in the film industry, Chelsea is looking forward to supporting other emerging filmmakers during the 2023 festival season. She is particularly excited about the upcoming festivals, including the Tribeca, Toronto, Venice Film, and Cannes Film Festivals.

With her role in “Warrior,” Chelsea is excited to be a part of a show pushing the boundaries of television and film. The series is executive produced by Shannon Lee and created by Johnathan Tropper, who has created other shows like Banshee and is a showrunner for additional projects on HBO and Apple.

Set in 19th-century San Francisco, “Warrior” tells the story of a Chinese American warrior who must confront the racism and prejudice of the time. “Society has a certain way of thinking about what is good and bad, and I have noticed that happiness isn’t valued enough and emphasis on money and materialism seem to be the main concern.” Chelsea believes this show will resonate with audiences worldwide and is honored to be a part of such a powerful and impactful production.

As Chelsea continues to make her mark in the industry, she is grateful for the opportunity to represent Toronto’s diverse and talented community on the global stage. She looks forward to supporting and uplifting other emerging filmmakers and actors in the city and is excited about the opportunities and experiences that the 2023 festival season will bring.
