Andra Nechita was born in Onesti, Romania and relocated to Dublin, Ireland with her parents when she was five years old. It was not until she and her family moved to Los Angeles in 2005 at the age of eight that she showed an interest for acting.
Limited by her ability to only speak fluently in Romanian and broken English in a thick Irish accent, Andra was quick to learn and within three months, was able to not only read and write in English, but speak fluently in an American accent. Shortly after, Andra's parents enrolled her in weekly acting classes at TVI Actors Studio where she showed great potential, and attracted interest from several agents and managers at showcases hosted by the studio.
After starring in her first feature film, Bad Teacher (2011) as Gaby, alongside Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Justin Timberlake, Andra gained momentum, starring once again alongside Jason Segel in How I Met Your Mother (2005), as a leading role in the thriller Cats Dancing on Jupiter (2015) , and the titular role of Kara in Kara: A Star Wars Story (2016).
Andra remains signed with a respectable Los Angeles based talent agent and talent manager and pursues the modeling industry in both Los Angeles and New York.
