Andi Matheny


    Andi Matheny has done almost every type of entertainment industry job while
remaining fully clothed. (Well, there was that nudist stint on Monk. Never mind.) While in Los Angeles, she starred in dozens of commercials, including a high-profile stint for Olay, and appeared in several TV series, most notably The Mentalist, Zoey 101, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Ugly Betty, and the aforementioned Monk. During her sabbatical from acting, she hosted the TV shows Kwik Witz, Essentials, Fit Resort & Spa, and Friends or Lovers. Her recent credits include the recurring role of Dr. Kelly Whitley on The Resident, David Makes Man, the Hallmark Channel movie True Love Blooms, Lady of the Manor directed by Justin and Christian Long, and the feature film High Expectations playing opposite Kelsey Grammer. Andi created and starred in the web series Good Morning St. Pete! and won the 2018 Sunscreen Film Festival award for Best Web Series as well as Best Actress at the 2018 Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival. Besides her marriage to screenwriter Tom Flynn, she considers her acting studio her greatest achievement and an ideal premise for a Lifetime movie. (Waiting for offers, y’all.)
