Golden Door Productions was born from the idea that in order to succeed at what you love to do, you need to open your own door to success.
Hobbs and Burke have long shared a friendship and a vision, both accomplished in the film and television industry with a mission to bring quality entertainment to the world through the eyes and minds of women. Both opening their own Golden Door, and helping other women have the voice they have long deserved.
As a child, Hobbs' mother always told her that all she had to do was open that 'Golden Door' at the top of the staircase and walk through and that is what they plan to do with their exciting slate of film, television & digital media projects.
Chelsea was born in Vancouver, Canada and entered the world of film and television at just 8 years old. As a child, Chelsea filmed over 80 commercials. Her first big break came when she starred alongside Bridget Fonda in Hallmark's timeless mini-series Snow Queen, earning her a best actress Leo award nomination. It wasn't long after that she booked her own pilot, starring in FOX's Save the Last Dance. Chelsea then graduated high school early through home schooling and moved to Los Angeles alone at the tender age of 17.
Over the next several years she made a name for herself in Hollywood starring in various tv films and guest starring on hit shows such as CSI, The L Word, CSI: Miami, Cold Case and HBO's Transporter. Chelsea was also fortunate to work alongside the late Heath Ledger in Sony picture's feature film Lords of Dogtown, which has since become a cult classic.
It was her lead role as underdog Emily Kmetko in Freeforms hit gymnastics drama, Make It Or Break It that solidified Chelsea's presence on the small screen. Following this success Chelsea had her second child, and moved back to Vancouver to raise her two children, now as a single mother.
Most recently Chelsea has heavily recurred on season 3 of the Emmy nominated Lifetime/Hulu series UnReal, guest starred on Girlfriends Guide to Divorce, Rogue, Lucifer, Motive, Supernatural, and Take Two, as well as several upcoming films including Tosca Musk's adaptation of Ruth Clampett's best selling novel Mr. 365.
Chelsea is continuing to have a solid career excelling as an actress, and is excited to bring her own material to big and small screens with Jovanna in 2019.
Jovanna Huguet-Burke grew up in Vancouver, BC, spending most of her life training in dance, theatre, voice and film. Jovanna attended high-school at Walnut Hill in Natick, MA, which led to her first job, a short-lived apprenticeship at the prestigious Boston Ballet. Following this, Jovanna spent 6 years in New York pursuing dance and theatre, after which she returned to Vancouver and made her film debut in the 2003 award winning Canadian Independent Film: Part of the Game.
Jovanna has since gone on to guest star on numerous television series (Supernatural, Smallville, Fringe, Psych, Mr.Young , Package Deal, The Flash, iZombie, Girlfriends Guide to Divorce…among others), several feature films(including the upcoming: 13 Miles) MOWs and web-series.
While working on camera is one of Jovanna’s greatest loves, she also has tried her hand at producing, and in 2014 her web series “The True Heroines” received two Leo Award nominations for Best Actress and Best Series, the latter of which took home the award. “The True Heroines” was also nominated for a Canadian Screen Award, that same year. In 2015 her film 'The Trap' (which she co-wrote/produced and starred in) started on the film festival circuit winning several awards along the way, and most notably another couple of 'Leo Award' nominations, including one for 'best actress' for Jovanna's performance.
Jovanna lives in Vancouver, BC with her husband Andrew and spends a lot of time raising her two young children. She has found a way to balance motherhood and a career and continues to have success as an actress, with several movies set to premiere in early 2019. Jovanna is thrilled to be bringing her own vision to life with Chelsea and looks forward to opening many more doors together.
