Andrea Lewis

Birth Date: August 15, 1985 / Age: 28
Birth Place: Toronto, Canada

Biography: Andrea Desiree Lewis {born August 15, 1985), better known plainly as Andrea Lewis, is a Canadian born actress who is also half Jamaican and half St. Vincent. She is Jamaican by her mother's side and Vincentian by her father's side. To add to her international bloodlines' make-up, her maternal grandmother was half Indian, and her maternal grandfather half Portuguese.

Lewis' nickname is "Andi".

Born in the Ontario city of Pickering, Lewis began acting at age two. Apart from acting, Lewis is also a buddying singer, having trained her voice at the famous New York Music Conservatory. Lewis has also written some songs, although none of them has become a major hit.

Andrea in electric yellow.Lewis appeared alongside Diahann Carroll in the biopic The Natalie Cole Story. She also acted alongside Ashley Judd in A Holiday Romance, which was a television Christmas special. In 1998, she played "Cassandra" in the critically acclaimed feature, Down in the Delta.

In 2001, she received the first of two opportunities to participate in the Showtime series Soul Food. She played "Brigette" in an episode aired that year.

One of her biggest breaks in acting came later on in 2002, when she got the opportunity to play Hilary Duff's best friend in the made for television movie Cadet Kelly, where she also acted alongside Christy Carlson-Romano. This movie became a regular feature on American cable channel Nickelodeon. She played "Carla Hall" in the movie. "Carla Hall" was a military school cadet who would not break school rules until she met "Kelly", played by Duff. In 2003, she reappeared on Soul Food, once again for only one episode, but this time, playing a different character: "Dana".

What has been, so far, arguably her biggest break in the entertainment business however, came also in 2002, when she began to play "Hazel Aden" in Degrassi: The Next Generation. Degrassi: The Next Generation followed in the steps of six other shows branded with the Degrassi name (dating back to 1979) in becoming a major hit across Canada, and Lewis reached fame, at least among teenaged television viewers.

In 2005, Degrassi: The Next Generation began to be shown on Nickelodeon's The N, a network geared towards more mature adolescent audiences, and Lewis began to become known in the United States as well.
