My name is Andrew JC Kaufman, I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I grew up watching films at the theaters every week with my family and it sparked something within me. It wasn’t until 7/8th grade that I started realizing that I could actually pursue acting as a career. So I’ve been doing it ever since, and it’s been an incredible amount of fun. I also do some archery on the side because I was obsessed with Arrow at some point. I also love football, I grew up playing it and watch it every Sunday with my Packers jersey, go pack go.
Why did I want to become an actor?
I wanted to start acting because it was a great way to express myself. It allowed me to be free of any constrictions I had in life and just have fun. It was while I was experiencing this that I realized that acting truly is an art, and hit me on a more emotional level and so I started to take it more personal.
Who is your biggest inspiration in the industry?
My biggest inspirations come from a bunch of people I mean I look up to a lot of directors and actors that make good art. In terms of actors, Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Pattinson, and Viola Davis are definitely up there. I also draw creative inspirations from directors such as: Dennis Villanueva, David Lynch, and Damien Chazelle.
What’s Your favorite TV show?
This is the easiest question of all time, it’s got to be How I Met Your Mother. That show easily takes the cake, I got the complete series IN BLU-RAY. This show was able to move me in ways that I didn’t know It could, and at the same time made me wheeze laugh. Gets an automatic 10/10 for me, without a doubt the best show I’ve seen.
