About Andrew Thompson
Andrew Thompson was raised in Niagara Falls from the age of three. At the age of eight, he discovered that he had a knack for doing impersonations, particularly those of actor Jim Carrey. Thompson used his impersonations as a way of bringing smiles and laughter to friends and family. His uncle even encouraged him to share the impersonations with friends and family at a normally somber time in the coffee room of his grandmother’s funeral. Thompson felt so happy to be able to make others smile and laugh at a usually very serious occasion, and knew that was what he wanted to do when he grew up. He has a strong desire to live out what he believes is his calling in the entertainment industry. He also has a strong desire to be a positive role model to those that enjoy and follow his work. Thompson graduated from the Acting for Film and Television program at Niagara College in 2010, the first graduating class of the program.
