By the age of fourteen, Andrea Russett was already a YouTube Star owing to her stop motion video named “JUSTIN BIEBER ONE TIME MUSIC VIDEO” that went viral within few days. However, the rapidly increasing number of views on her video did not win her the chance to meet Justin Bieber but instead she became an internet celebrity. She worked as a radio jockey in a local radio station before she was pushed to stardom by her music and lifestyle based videos. In 2013, Russet signed a contract with ‘Fullscreen, Inc.’, a global network of content creators and brands on YouTube, and was relocated to California. In the same year, she started designing for her own clothing line and launched her own brand FLAWD Clothing.
Soon after moving to California, Andrea also started focusing on her acting career. In 2014, she first landed her role as an actress in the feature length comedy film, ‘Expelled’; the video of which was released by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. Thereafter, Andrea appeared in different small film roles and film shorts in the upcoming years. She also made appearances as guest in television shows. Her career took the next step in 2016, when she co-produced and starred in ‘Sickhouse’, a thriller film that was initially released in brief installments on Andrea’s Snapchat account. The film received praises from the viewers as well as from the critics due to its “different” storytelling technique. The online popularity of the film also fueled the making of a sequel to the film.
In 2016, she appeared in two short films, ‘Lovesick’ and ‘A Peculiar Tale’. In the same year, she did a cameo in the film ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’. She also appeared on the reality television series ‘Catfish: The TV Show’ aired by MTV. 2016, was also the year in which Andrea Russett released her first compilation “Mind Medicine” with the motto to give more exposure to talented but underrated EDM artists like Coleman Hell and Robert DeLong. In 2017, she is back as the anchor of the weekly talk series ‘Apologies In Advance’. Andrea Russett enjoys over 5.5 million followers on Instagram and 6.9 million followers on Twitter. She has amassed over 2.8 million subscribers on her YouTube channel.
Andrea Russett was born on June 27, 1995, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she lived with her parents till 2013, before moving to California. Her parents, Mark William Russett and Jacqui Russett, are graphic designers and share a happy marriage. Andrea also has a sister named Anna.

She completed middle school and got into high school only to discontinue formal education half a year before completing the course as she believes “I don’t learn by reading and writing a report. I need to be doing something to learn.”
She loves animals and also has come up with her initiative ‘dollarsforcollars’ for raising money to be used in preventing cruelty on animals. She was dating fellow YouTube personality, Kian Lawley, but things did not turn out well between the two. Currently, she is in a relationship with the singer Kenny Holland.
