AndreaBogartBio

Born in St. Charles, Missouri, actress Andrea Bogart trained as a dancer and danced professionally before deciding to switch careers and become an actress.  She appeared in such shows as “Grounded for Life”, “Nikki” and “Off Centre” before debuting on the big screen in “Masters of Disguise”. She has continued working on both the big and small screens, on series such as “Ray Donovan” (on which she had a recurring role) and in films such as Steven Soderbergh's “Side Effects” opposite Jude Law, and has the distinction of having appeared in all three shows of the “CSI” franchise.  In 2010 she landed the plum role of “Abby Haver” on the iconic daytime series “General Hospital”, appearing in over 100 episodes. Her further feature-film credits include “Wingman”, “Life's an Itch”, “Dark Ride”, “The Last Run”, “Back in the Day”, “The Secret Lives of Dorks” and “Bar Starz”.

In addition to her television and film work, she has also appeared on stage, most notably in Lanford Wilson's “Burn This” (which, ironically, is the part that “lit her fire” for acting). Her work in the play “A Postcard from L.A.” led the trade paper “Backstage” to call her performance “delightful . . . equal parts sultry siren and irritating vixen”. She has also appeared in over 40 nationally televised commercials, for such products as Coors Light beer (which aired during the Super Bowl), Honda, DirecTV, Nike, AT&T, Cadillac, Electrolux, Taco Bell, Pantene, Bud Light beer and The Gap clothing stores. In addition, she has appeared in music videos for such artists as Smash Mouth,  98 Degrees, Moby and Marc Anthony.

When not in front of the camera or on stage, she busies herself with teaching dance—ballet, tap, hip-hop and tumbling—to young children. She has been a yoga enthusiast and practitioner for many years and has obtained certification as an instructor. She has kept a journal detailing the many paths and places that her life has taken her--from small-town Missouri to becoming a world traveler, from being honored with the “Outstanding Young Alumni” award n 2011 from Missouri State University to starring with Rooney Mara in 2013's “Side Effects”, and everything in between. She also volunteers her time with the Young Storytellers Foundation and is a member of the “New Hollywood Women's Goal Group” founded by her friend, actress Brianna Brown.
