Andrew Upton Biography

Andrew Upton, born around 1966, is an Australian playwright, screenwriter, and director. As a playwright, he wrote for the Sydney Theatre Company, and his titles include adaptations of Hedda Gabler, The Cherry Orchard, Cyrano de Bergerac and Don Juan. He wrote the original play Riflemind, which did well in Sydney in 2007 but didn’t fare as well in London in 2008, as it was shut down due to poor reviews.

In 1999, Andrew Upton wrote and directed the short film Bangers, which starred wife Cate Blanchett. In 2006, he wrote the film Gone. He also wrote the libretto to Alan John’s opera ‘Through the Looking Glass’ which premiered in May 2008. He and his wife are joint artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company, and they have a film company called Dirty Films.

Andrew Upton married Cate Blanchett December 29, 1997. He has a good sense of humor about living in Cate’s shadow, and has taken to calling himself “the hand,” as that is often all that can be seen of him in cropped red carpet photos of his wife. They have three sons: Dashiell John Upton, born December 3, 2001, Roman Robert Upton, born April 23, 2005, and Ignatius Martin Upton, born April 13, 2008.
