Selima Smith-Dell is an actress, model, and fashion blogger who relocated to Los Angeles a year ago. She is originally from Cambridge, Massachusetts. She is a graduate of the Boston University's prestigious School of Theater where she earned a BFA in Acting.
She began working with Brent Paxton at Kreativ Artists Management in Los Angeles right before the quarantine began. She is loving her new theatrical agents and looks forward to the development of their budding relationship. Just a few weeks ago she signed with commercial agent Jodi Silbor at Firestarter Entertainment. She is also represented by Dani Korwin at Parts Models for hand modeling in New York and Los Angeles.
Shortly after graduating from Boston University she relocated to New York where she resided for five glorious years. While in New York she was in holiday ads for Vistaprint, beauty ads for Olay, Snapchat ads for Visible x Verizon and various other print and video campaigns for Allure Magazine and Chipotle. She earned her first few co-star roles on "Evil Lives Here" on Investigation Discovery in the episode "Something Wasn't Right" as well as "Bad Henry" on Investigation Discovery, a documentary film Tv special.
Selima made her feature film debut last fall in Empathy Inc. The indie sci-fi film aired in select movie theaters in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Ohio before making its official release on streaming platforms Amazon and itunes.
Since March Selima has been quarantined in her home in Santa Monica. She was feeling a lack of creativity in her life when she had the idea to create her own Youtube web series "The Quarantine Project". Her web series explores all of the facets of living alone while quarantining. Selima has a variety of characters stop by her home for conversations about life, race, work, love, sexuality, politics, etc. Selima plays all of the characters. Below are two popular episodes from Season 1 + 2.
Apart from her commercial, tv, and film acting work she is a fashion and skincare blogger. Her blog focuses on sustainable fashion. Head over to her blog to see which brands she has recently collaborated with and to catch her in the latest trends.
In her free time when she isn't acting, shooting, or fashion blogging she enjoys taking horse riding lessons with her favorite horse Apache in Burbank, sipping matcha while scarfing down an Impossible Burger, playing sudoku, reading Malcolm Gladwell, or listening to Oprah's Super Soul Sunday podcast.
