Kerri Lee Green (born January 14, 1967) is an American actress, writer, and director.

Life and career[edit]

Green was born on January 14, 1967 in Fort Lee, New Jersey. She grew up in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, and attended Pascack Hills High School in Montvale, New Jersey.[1][2]

She performed as a young teen in several movies, including Summer Rental (1985), which starred John Candy. Her big break came in the 1985 film The Goonies, in which she played cheerleader-turned-adventurer Andrea "Andy" Carmichael. She gained more critical acclaim for her performance in Lucas (1986). However, her next film, Three for the Road (1987), which featured Charlie Sheen and Alan Ruck, did not fare as well. Green appeared in the episode of In the Heat of the Night ,in which she played Karen Servance, the daughter of John Servance (John Diehl) in "Triangle" in 1990. She performed in an independent film called Blue Flame and appeared in two episodes of the television sitcom Mad About You as Paul's secretary. She then took a break from acting to study art at Vassar College, where she was roommates with Marisa Tomei's brother, Adam, and with BioShock developer Ken Levine.[3]

Green eventually co-founded a movie production company, Independent Women Artists, with Bonnie Dickenson. With Dickenson, she co-wrote and directed the film adaptation of a play about teen pregnancy called Bellyfruit (1999).
