Andrea Powell is an accomplished film, television, theatre, and voiceover actress, best known for her role as single werewolf mom and fashion plate Karen Crezski in the ABC series, The Gates. She is the voice of Elena Winters, star of the hit online video game, Fallen Earth and a frequent voice for major corporations’ e-learning and marketing campaigns.
Andrea initially auditioned for the role of one of the dancers in the Boom Boom Bar, making up her own movement to the song the auditioners played. She was later called in for the role of one of the Brooklyn Girls, a choice that surprised her. She had a good experience during the production of the film, making lots of friends and good memories. When asked her opinion of the movie when it first came out, Andrea explained that she really liked it, but was bummed at how it compared to Jurassic Park.
