On the K-drama inspired series, Sik has played dual roles of Chelsea and Aleescha. The characters she portrays, often the love interest of the title protagonist, are usually underdogs, who start off bullied but come out victorious in the end, or saved by Alan and the power of love.

Alan’s Universe will be having a live performance at VidCon this month.

Said Chow in a statement to Deadline, “Chelsea’s ability to light up every room she walks in with magnetic charisma and energy is core to our team. In this new generation of content, Chelsea has the timeless talent to ground stories with her fantastic commitment to her characters. I’m beyond proud of Chelsea for being an outstanding leading lady, and for being one of my best friends. We’ve gone from being friends at USC, to filming together for fun on our phones, to starring in this incredible production together. The best is yet to come!”

Sik recently debuted as the new legend Alter in the videogame Apex Legends. She has won several lead actress film festival awards for the short film Foreign Planetary.

Sik also starred in the indie feature film Heartstorm produced by Arianna Lady Basco, sister of Dante Basco.

The actress recently served as a Judge for Make Noise Today’s annual AAPI scholarship contest. She has also starred in content for LaughMD, a video app used in hospitals that prescribes laughter to patients.

Sik is repped by Venture Entertainment Partners.
