Starting acting in theater when she was only a little girl, Chase Masterson made the leap to the big screen at the age of 12 when she was cast in the small role of a blonde prostitute in the horror/thriller Confessions of a Serial Killer, starring Robert A. Burns and Dennis Hill. Her second film role arrived eight years later, this time starring as Beth in director Mike Seden’s Married People, Single Sex (1993). The same year, she costarred with Maxwell Caulfield in the drama film In a Moment of Passion and had a feature role as Giggling Court Lady in Mel Brooks’ comedy Robin Hood: Men in Tights, which starred Cary Elwes in the title role.

Masterson’s first break arrived in 1994, when she joined the cast of the long-running television series “General Hospital,” where she memorably played the role of Ivy Lief. The following year, she played a supporting role in the sci-fi film Digital Man, had a three episodic role as Sheila Rydell in the series “Live Shot,” as well as appeared as Mrs. Phillips in an episode of the popular medical show “ER.”

It was also in 1995 that Masterson received her biggest break when she landed the role of sexy, energetic Bajoran Dabo girl Leeta in the sci-fi series “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” costarring opposite Avery Brooks, Alexander Siddig, Nana Visitor, Rene Auberjonois, Colm Meaney, Armin Shimerman and Terry Farrell, among others. The actress stayed with the show until 1999.

While costarring on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” Masterson made a remarkable guest appearance as Kelly, the sister of Wade Welles (played by Sabrina Lloyd) in another sci-fi serial “Sliders” in the episode of “Season’s Greedings” (1996). She also appeared in three films, Marina (1997), Ballerina Finale (1997) and Sammyville (1999), and in a guest role in an episode of “Acapulco H.E.A.T.”

After departing the show, Masterson could be seen as Major Callie O’Grady in the horror film Sometimes They Come Back... for More (1999), along side Clayton Rohner, Faith Ford and Max Perlich, Moira Murphy in the comedy The Specials (2000), starring Paget Brewster and Thomas Haden Church, and acted opposite John Schneider in the made-for-television film Lightning: Fire from the Sky (2001).

Masterson next tested the waters of sci-fi again in the television film Manticore (2005), opposite Robert Beltran and Jeff Fahey.

Masterson will provide the voice of Janice in the animated film Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, a sequel to the original Robotech series of the 1980s. She is also set to star opposite Kipleigh Brown and John Newton in the forthcoming Yesterday Was a Lie, a mystery/ sci-fi film by James Kerwin for 2007 release.

In addition to acting, Masterson is also known as the host of the “Sci-Fi Entertainment” news magazine show on the Sci-Fi Channel in the 1990s, and is a singer of jazz/torch songs, who has released an album, The Thrill of the Chase. Her sophomore effort is reportedly in preparation.
