Mini Bio (1)

Shawn Andrews recently starred as "Leo" opposite Olivia Wilde in Tao Ruspoli's award-winning film _Fix (2008/I)' which won Andrews a Best Actor Award at the Brooklyn International Film Festival. He can also be seen in Ben Rodkin's critically acclaimed Big Heart City (2008) opposite Oscar nominee Seymour Cassel. This performance has been praised by actor Dennis Hopper who likens Andrews' portrayal of "Frank Polowski" to those of James Dean in his classic films. He made his feature film debut as the uber cool "Kevin Pickford" in Richard Linklater's indie cult phenomenon Dazed and Confused (1993).

Andrews has dedicated his career to provocative character-driven work and this sensibility has led him to roles like his portrayal of "Simon" in Robert Saitzyk's melodic festival favorite After the Flood (2001) and as beautiful loser "Robbie" in Matt Dillon's City of Ghosts (2002).

Andrews studied under Arthur Penn at The Actors Studio in New York.
