A few great opportunities, natural talent and a strong passion for performing have catapulted former Missouri State Sugar Bear Andrea Bogart, ’99, from the dance floor onto the silver screen.
The Wentzville, Mo., native has starred in the films “Dark Ride,” “The Last Run,” “Master of Disguise” and “Ready or Not,” made appearances in a number of familiar television shows, including “CSI: NY,” “Nip/Tuck” and “Two and a Half Men” and been in commercials for Coors Light, Taco Bell, AT&T, Nike, the Gap and more.
Currently, Bogart is portraying the character Abby Haver on ABC’s “General Hospital.”
“My role on General Hospital has been my favorite so far; the opportunity to develop and regularly play a character has been wonderful. Bringing to life something that’s written on the page is so creative, imaginative and fun,” said Bogart.
While the young actress has experienced a great deal of success in her career, she didn’t spend her childhood daydreaming of becoming a movie star. Instead, she dreamed of dancing.
“I’ve danced since I was a little girl. I knew when I started looking at colleges that dance was something I wanted to continue.”
