Early life and education
Chasty spent her entire childhood with her middle-class family in Winnipeg, and her dream was to become a hairstylist rather than an actress which she later on managed to fulfil. She never speaks about her family or her siblings and therefore nothing is known about them – after Chasty finished high school, she decided that University wasn’t something she wanted to do, so she focused on her chosen career, and opened her own hair salon.
Chasty began her acting career when she landed a role in the “Encounter with Danger” movie, shot in 2009 – as soon as she appeared in this movie, she won numerous other roles including in “Guido Superstar: The Rise of Guido” in 2010, and “Final Destination 5” in 2011. In 2012, she landed her first role in a comedy movie entitled “The Movie Out Here”, and immediately fell in love with this genre. In the upcoming years, she went on to appear in more than 10 movies, including “Cavemen” in 2013, “Neighbors” in 2014, “The Funhouse Massacre” in 2015 and “Star Trek Renegades” in 2015 as well. Her latest role in a movie was in “The Mummy” in 2017, after which she decided to focus on acting in TV series.
Chasty has appeared in many TV series, but usually only for an episode as the producers realized that she is the perfect actress for guest roles. Her first appearance was in “Smallville” shot in 2009, in which she had just a tiny role as one of the nurses – as soon as she appeared here, everybody else wanted her, and she went on to appear in “The Guard” and “Supernatural” in the same year. After these roles, it was “Psych” and “Sanctuary”, and then she won a very important role for her career, as Tina in the “How I Met Your Mother” sitcom in 2012 – it wasn’t a major role but the series was and are still is a big hit, and therefore helped Chasty get recognized.
This is when Chasty realized that she could choose in which series she wanted to appear, as she was getting so many offers, and so only chose the ones she liked and which were popular, such as “Criminal Minds”, “Hollywood Height”, and “The Newsroom” in 2012 and 2013 in which she appeared in seven episodes.
Some of her more important appearances in the upcoming years were in “Two and a Half Men” in 2012, “CSI: NY” and “Californication” both in 2013, and “Modern Family” in 2015. Her last appearance was in “Into the Dark” in 2018, in which she played Bubblegum Girl in the episode entitled “The Body”.
Chasty is one of those people who like to keep their private life to themselves – she’s almost never shared anything regarding her love life, except one – and doesn’t generally talk about any relationships. There are no rumors following her, as she doesn’t do or say anything which would provoke people.
However, there is a very special video on YouTube entitled “How He Asked – Curtis & Chas Proposal” – apparently, Chasty had a boyfriend who is a professional mountain bike racer named Curtis Keene, and they had been dating for a couple of years before Curtis proposed. He spent one year planning, coordinating and searching for the ring before he asked her to marry him on 23 January 2016, and since he knew she would want him to capture it somehow, he rented a helicopter with the help of his friends and recorded the entire proposal. Either the pair separated, or the whole episode was fiction.

Chasty is currently 38 years old, has long brown hair, brown eyes, is 5ft 6ins (1.67m) tall, weighs around 120lbs (55kgs), and her vital statistics are 36-25-37. She wears dress size six, shoes size eight, and has an hourglass shaped body.

‘Lady Gaga is just so confident, just to be around her, she gives off that confidence, and she’s so humble and really charismatic. Had it been anybody else having to do that elaborate thing with, I don’t know how well it would have went. And Matt Bomer – he’s such a pro; he’s just so down to earth. Thankfully they were there and they were super natural about it. And in between takes, we’re set in that scene and we’re all bloody and stuff, and we just sat there naked, just chatting in between takes. I was like, ‘I feel like we’re in a sweat lodge.’ So yeah, it was really inspiring.’ – Chasty about her role in “American Horror Story” and the scene in which she appeared alongside Lady Gaga and Matt Bomer.
