Profile from former Official Site

Played by Mark Elstob
First Appearance on 15th February 2001
Job; Stud Farm Manager

Andrew sees opportunities in Emmerdale - the Tates are wealthy and because the Stud Farm is a potential gold mine, he wants a piece of it.

Andrew first appears after Virginia suggests him for the Stud Manager’s job. Chris is away visiting Tara and Zoe, so she takes the opportunity to hire Andrew in his absence.

Chris is annoyed when he returns to find that Andrew has been hired, and that he has taken a shine to Charity. Andrew offers to give Charity a riding lesson, she gladly takes him up on the offer.

Since moving to Emmerdale Andrew has had relationships with Nicola. Virginia and Lady Tara. He has now set his sites on Kathy.
He fell in love with Kathy who then moved to Australia to live closer to her niece. The Home Farm Stud was sold and Andrew went to work as a Stud Manager in Ireland.

A Huge Big Thank you to Paul Berridge who has made various profiles and photos availabe to me. They were previously on his Beckindale site (that is no more). This is one of those profiles - although the coloured boxes have been added.
