Being an Anglo-Indian, Andrea had to fight more than others to establish her identity. The discrimination and cultural-gap made her want to quit the industry in her initial years. However, the actress continued to fight when she landed roles in films such as Viswaroopam and Annayum Rasoolum. In the last few years, she has essayed stronger roles such as Althea from Taramani and Chandra from Vada Chennai.

The actress has a mind of her own and feels, the industry lacks women-centric subjects. She says, since most filmmakers are men, they cannot project on screen, a woman's perception. Hence, they mostly showcase a man's idea of a woman. Andrea feels, having more women producers will also help in working towards this issue.

With respect to bringing about a change, she holds a lot of respect for South Indian actress Parvathy and Kangana Ranaut from Bollywood. She hopes to be like them in the Tamil film industry.
