André Fyffe is an actor, producer born and raised in North West London.
His voice has a distinctive, deep gravelly tone which paired with a mature appearance and intense stage and screen presence has quickly set him apart and often results to being cast for older roles.
André found his passion and confidence for performing at age 10 while attending the Willesden Drama Workhouse, where he spent 6 years immersing himself in roles both on stage and backstage. He then undertook 2 years of specialised training at the Sylvia Young School of Performing Arts and joined their agency before spending a further 2 years at the prestigious Kingdom School of Arts. This is where his skills were recognised during his extensive and varied training. André then continued his training doing an intensive course with various companies such as the National Youth Theatre, Actors Centre, Actors Temple and ALT training all which provided a unique combination of part-time, vocational screen acting and theatre training and a teaching faculty of professional practitioners.
During college, André appeared in a range of short films, including Film5 Scruffbag productions, as well as simultaneously creating his own online successful project ‘My Cousin Reece’ (2014). This has subsequently attracted thousands of online viewers. This led to his work on Sky’s Pick TV series “What’s Up.” Since then, André has appeared in several short films, indie films, theatre and television productions.
His warm husky voice has granted him extra recognition doing voice overs and commercials for brands such as Volvic, Puma, and Adidas whilst producing his own projects.
Recent Acting credits include; in Theatre; Macbeth (2017) playing the lead role in Susie McKenna’s play at Edinburgh Fringe Festival which continued at Hackney Empire.

All off many projects that have helped him receive further recognition as a very skilled young actor. Also, André is on his first full-length feature ‘Absent’ which should receive its’ theatrical release this year
Finally, this would be Andre’s third year emerging as a producer.

As well as screen projects, Andre produced commercial ‘If You Can…’ for BBC Radio 1 Extra with the award winning Fully Focused Media company. Whilst working on Capture which was filmed by award-winning cinematography, Zoran Veljkovi.
Andre continuous to produce work under his new Production Company, Elicit Pictures with team members Stephan Pierre Mitchell and Dee William.
