Andy Gates is an American Film and Television actor. He has trained at Emerson College, American Conservatory Theatre and The Actors Workshop in Boston. He has trained with Cliff Osmond, Michelle Danner, Ron Max, Rick Pagano and Susie Landau. His breakthrough film role was in the film The Cleaning Lady (2005) and his big stage debut was back in 1990 at ACT's annual favorite 'A Christmas Carol'. This performance had to be in the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco due to the severe damage of the Geary Theatre by the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Ironically Andy was to appear in a National Geographic Special in 2005 as a tourist from Oklahoma trapped on the Bay Bridge during the same devastating quake. He specializes in portraying the everyman, and his "boy next door" looks and charm obscure the fact that his true love in cinema and his reason for becoming an actor in the first place is the Horror genre. Andy lives in Los Angeles.
