Rosalie Anderson “Andie” MacDowell (born April 21, 1958) is an American actress and fashion model. She made her film debut in 1984’s Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, before receiving critical acclaim for her role in Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989).

Since then she has appeared in several notable films, including Groundhog Day (1993) and Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994). She has also starred in Green Card (1990), Short Cuts (1993), Michael (1996) and Multiplicity (1996).

Early life

Andie MacDowell was born in Gaffney, South Carolina, the daughter of Pauline “Paula” Johnston (née Oswald), a music teacher, and Marion St. Pierre MacDowell, a lumber executive. Her ancestry includes English, French, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh.

Her family owned an Antebellum period summer house in Arden, North Carolina, which has since been made into a bed-and-breakfast named the Blake House Inn.

Graffiti from her childhood visits are preserved in an upstairs bedroom closet. She attended Winthrop University for two years before moving briefly to Columbia, South Carolina.

She was initially spotted by a rep from Wilhelmina Models while on a trip to Los Angeles before she would later sign with Elite Model Management in New York City in 1978.

In the early 1980s, MacDowell modelled for Vogue magazine and appeared in ad campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Vassarette, Armani perfume, Sabeth-Row, Mink International, Anne Klein and Bill Blass.

A series of billboards in Times Square and national television commercials for Calvin Klein drew attention to her and led to her 1984 film debut in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, a role in which her lines were dubbed by Glenn Close because her Southern accent was too pronounced for her to play the role of an Englishwoman. In 1985, she had a small part in St. Elmo’s Fire.
