Chelsy Bakula’s Career: Is she an actor like her father?
If one of your family members is a big name in a certain profession, people become curious if you also follow in the same footstep or not. Likewise, Chelsy’s dad Scott is one of the most coveted actors of his generation. The multiple-award-winning actor is famous for his work in the series, Quantum Leap and Star Trek: Enterprise.
Well, what do you know, Chelsy also followed her dad’s footsteps and became an actress. Her debut came at the mere age of nine when she appeared in her dad’s TV series, Quantum Leap. She played an uncredited role of a girl in a diner in the episode, Memphis Melody.
However, it seems she didn’t like the whole showbiz and switched to more theatrical cinema. She worked in a couple of plays on Broadway. She even once appeared alongside her half-brother Owen in the Mother’s Day edition of Broadway in May 2017.
Nevertheless, as of now, she isn’t quite active in the acting field.
What is Chelsy doing nowadays?
As of now, she is doing what many of us dream of. Chelsy alongside her husband and pet dog lives a nomadic life. The trio moves from one place to another in an RV.
She operates an Instagram account by the name, The Outpost Gang, wherein she posts her day-to-day journey. Their nomadic and stress-free lifestyle is something that many of us want to do but somehow we are not able to.
Safe to say, Chelsy has left the acting field and become a full-time traveler now.

Chelsy’s father regrets choosing his career over everything
It was in the year 1981 when Scott and Chelsy’s mother, Krista exchanged vows. The pair dated for some time before taking the big step. Their marital relationship was sailing smoothly before something snapped. After months of struggle, they finally divorced in the year 1995.
Back then Scott’s time was fully occupied by the show, Quantum Leap. The science-fiction show aired for around four years, from 1989 to 1993, and Scott played the lead role of Sam Beckett. Although the show brought forth numerous accolades for the actor, it did cost him his private life.
In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, Scott revealed it was his professional life that destroyed his personal life. He mentioned that during the filming of the series he was “hardly ever home for four and a half seasons.” He further stated, “It took me a long time to work out my feelings about our relationship.”
From the above statement, it is evident he is quite regretful of the choices he made back then. Apart from all these, the handsome actor also regrets not being able to spend time with his daughter Chelsy as much he wanted to.
Whatever happened in the past happened, no one can change that. All we can say is Chelsy is on good terms with her dad.
How much is Chelsy Bakula’s net worth?
Her current lifestyle is that of a nomad. There’s no info on what she does for a living because of which it is quite hard to pinpoint her net worth. Meanwhile, her father has a total fortune of $10 million.
Besides, she is active on Instagram and goes by the username @chelsegray, though her profile is kept on private. She is also active on Facebook.
