Andrea Russett (born June 27, 1995[1]) is an American actress and Internet personality active on Snapchat, Instagram, Vine, and YouTube.[2][3] In 2016, she starred in the thriller film Sickhouse, which initially released via brief increments on her Snapchat account.[4]

Life and career[edit]

Russett began broadcasting on YouTube during her early teens, when she created a music video as part of a contest to meet Justin Bieber,[5] which ended up in his movie Never Say Never.

She attended a private Catholic high school until her junior year, at which point she moved to California after signing a contract with Fullscreen and began attending an online school.[6] Russett left the program during her final year, as she felt that "everybody learns differently and I don’t learn by reading and writing a report. I need to be doing something to learn.”[6]

In 2013, Russett began designing her own clothing line, FLAWD Clothing.[7]

In 2014, she worked as a radio DJ in Fort Wayne, Indiana.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Russett has one sister named Anna and one brother named Anthony.[9] She came out as bisexual on September 21, 2018 through a series of tweets on Twitter.[10][11]
