Trivia

Andrew won acclaim for his potrayal of Liberace in the 1988 TV movie of the same name.

In 1978, Andrew was nominated for the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Daytime Drama Series for Ryan's Hope (1975).

Along with Lawrence Dobkin, Andrew is one of only two Star Trek non-regulars to both appear in and direct an episode of Star Trek.

Andrew wrote a novel about the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) character he played, Elim Garak, entitled A Stitch in Time.

Andrew has several action figures made in his likeness of his character, "Elim Garak", on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993).

While it's tempting to make the connection, Andrew is not related to Edward G. Robinson. Andy's father died in WWII, when he was only three.

Andrew's portrayal of the chilling Scorpio Killer in Dirty Harry (1971) led to him receiving serious death threats via telephone after the film's release.

Andrew was almost awarded the part of Odo on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) after first reading for the part. He was chosen for the recurring role of Elim Garak instead.

After graduating from college, Andrew spent a year in England at the London Academy for Music and Dramatic Arts on a Fulbright Scholarship.

Andrew has been married to his wife Irene since 1970.
