In a world where geeks are finally represented fairly on television, AMC’s breakout hit Halt and Catch Fire is king. Cooper Andrews’ character, Yo-Yo, has always been a reliable source of good times—which is vital when the show takes one of its frequent sharp left turns to heartbreak city.
Cooper quickly became a fan favorite after he landed the role of Jerry, right hand man of King Ezekiel during The Walking Dead’s seventh season, and as the show continues into its ninth season he has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is a lot more to Jerry than peach cobbler and a winning smile. Cooper also appeared alongside Jason Momoa and Julianne Nicholson during the second season of dance’s The Red Road, and his other television work includes time spent on sound departments for various productions, as well as guest starring on Hawaii Five-O, and Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell. He has filmed several independent films, including Golgotha, Mandie and the Secret Tunnel, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, the TV film Thin Ice and the heist action thriller Den of Thieves. He recently appeared in the DC superhero hit Shazam!
Cooper was born in Smithtown, Long Island, NY. He enjoys cooking, screenwriting, archery, weightlifting, and his mother’s Raspberry Mountain Pie.
