Биография: Andy was born and brought up in Ruislip, West London. He grew up wanting to be a paintergraphic artist and eventually studied visual arts at Lancaster University. Being so close to the Lake District, it just so happened that it also enabled him to follow his other passion in life, mountaineering!
Whilst at university, he became heavily involved in the theatre studies department, which had a broad-based approach including design, lighting, staging, as well as history and acting theory. After performing in a production of Barrie Keefes play Gotcha, Andy decided that he wanted to become an actor. In 1985 he began working at the Dukes playhouse, Lancaster, where he started to learn his craft. Under the direction of Jonathan Petherbridge, he performed in fourteen plays on the trot, playing a wide variety of characters in plays including Volpone, The Good Person of Szechwan, and A Midsummer Nights Dream.
