Andrew Cheney, lead actor

Andrew Cheney, who plays Brady Gray, is a film, TV and commercial actor based in Los Angeles.

After booking a series of national commercials and short films in the live music capital of the world, Austin, Texas, he made his way to Los Angeles in 2009. At lunch one day with Tony Hale of “Arrested Development,” Hale quickly and comically pegged Cheney as “that leading man material you can’t help but hate just a little.”

Cheney has had the privilege of starring opposite John Rhys-Davies, Robert Miano, Rachel Hendrix, Erin Bethea and Adetokumboh M’Cormack.

Most recently, Cheney completed the leading role in an EchoLight Studios and Liberty University film to be released in 2014.
