Andrew Pastides (Hank)

When Andrew was six, a man named Mich Chakour taught him the blues guitar on a Sears Silvertone, and in fourth grade, he electrocuted himself at Show-and- Tell trying to play "The Thrill is Gone," with a mini electric. In high school, he discovered acting, and attended the South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities in the summers from 2000-2002. (For the last seven years has returned to teach there each summer with his mentor, Daniel Murray.) Andrew then studied under Gerald Freeman at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

In 2006, Andrew moved to New York City, and also continued to work in regional theatre. Credits include: Goldfish (Magic Theatre), The Glass Menagerie (Two River Theatre), The Chosen (The Cleveland Playhouse), Molly's Delicious (The Arizona Theatre Co.), Tartuffe (Two River Theatre), Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde (Theatre Alliance). Andrew’s collaboration with playwright John Kolvenbach began in San Francisico with his play “Goldfish,” in 2009. He also played in Kolvenbach’s “Love Song,’ for its NYC premier at 59 E59 in 2011, and recently was in the world premiere of his play “Half n' Half n' Half” at MRT.  

Andrew’s TV credits include: CBS's Blue Bloods, Law and Order on NBC, USA's Suits, and Boardwalk Empire. Film credits: Mrs. Tenderfoot Takes a Lover, Perfectly Normal (Dir. Jim McMahon), and Shadows and Lies (Dir. Jay Anania).  Last year, Andrew fell in love with riding and working on motorcycles, and thinks he may have a future in carpentry.
