Andrew Stehlin is a New Zealand actor and stuntman.[1] He started his career as a set builder and stunt performer but found a way to combine his interest in acting with his stuntwork and became a part-time actor.[2] He received a minor cult following after playing the vicious vampire beta male Arvin in the horror film 30 Days of Night (2007). In 2019, Stehlin portrayed the X-Men mutant Ariki in Dark Phoenix (2019).


He started his career as a hairdresser and had appeared on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess as an extra. Stehlin was attracted to the stunt roles and opted to pursue a career as a stunt man due to having a martial arts background. He was contacted by a friend to help form a stunt team for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring because the original team was ironically working on the shows that Stehlin was an extra on.[3]
