Andrew J. West stars in "The Walking Dead" on AMC as Gareth.

Andrew J. West was born in Merrillville, Indiana, and grew up in the nearby town of Lake Station. He was interested in acting from an early age but did not pursue his craft until he went to Indiana University, where he studied philosophy and anthropology. He auditioned for university plays and began landing roles, including the lead in Eric Bogosian's "SubUrbia." West then began writing, producing, and acting in short films with his college friends, some of which went to the festivals and won awards.

After moving to Los Angeles, he landed the role of the young Christian Troy in the cult classic television series "Nip/Tuck," had simultaneous recurring roles on "Greek" and "Privileged," and guest starred on shows such as "Bones," "CSI: NY," "Ghost Whisperer," "Castle," "Body of Proof," "$#*! My Dad Says" and "Suburgatory."

West was also the lead in the critically acclaimed web series "Rockville CA" from Josh Schwartz. That was followed with the lead in two ABC pilots: "Who Gets the Parents," opposite Jane Kaczmarek and Adam Arkin, and "Family Practice," opposite Christopher Lloyd and Jean Smart.

Most recently, West starred in the indie film "Walter," opposite William H. Macy.
