Andy Allo in Amazon's series "Upload"


Didn't see another thread about this. She's barely recognizable but seemed so familiar...I had no idea she's been acting and getting parts, I'm pretty sure I've seen her in things and didn't make the connection. Reminds me a little bit of Zoe Kravitz in High Fidelty with this part, in a way. She's a lead part in this. I think it's safe to say she's a much better actor than musician, and incredibly talented.

Looks like a great new show. Nice to see young success for Andy. Seems she's a natural actress. Prince sure could spot em, love them and teach them well.

I just watched and thought it looked like Andy Allo! My husband was like “who”?

Good show so far and good to see her in it.

I never kept up w/ her very much, so I honestly couldn't spot her in a lineup.

I happened to notice her name on the episodes. (We were 4 episodes in, lol.)

She is a good actress. The show is fun. People's conscience are uploaded to a digital world when they die. Allo plays an "angel," a help in real life that can guide the dead person (aka "an upload") through their new after life. There's a comedic edge to it, but something sinister is adrift, too. Episodes are about 30 minutes each, so it's a good afternoon watch.

Kudos to Allo for expanding her career. This is a good show, and she fits well into it.

I'd also recommend Tales from the Loop on Prime. It's fucking amazing.

Just when U think U've got more than enough, that's when it all up and flies away.

I knew she was going to be in a new show on Amazon and had been waiting for it but didn't know its name. Had to laugh when my son,who didn't know anything about Andy, was directing me to a show he thought I'd enjoy and when I watched it I saw it was Andy's. I like it a lot.

I seen the commercial and thought it looked like her, was going to look it up but hadn't gotten around to it yet.

Nice to see that she is doing well.

My eyes spend so much time glued to the computer that I rarely make it over to the TV. lol

Have only checked out a handful of shows in recent years, and so glad this is one of them. It's really fun to watch, and Andy's character is my favorite.

Thanks for the good news on Upload's renewal!

Thanks for the story! I laughed and smiled when I read about your son guiding you to the show.

Wouldn't be surprised if my son makes an inadvertent purple connection one of these days. Love that we so often bump into links to the purple world. They really are all around.

It's getting a lot of props from all over. I think getting a 2nd season already tells you people really like it. It's funny because it's kind of corny in some areas yet it has a point, several of them. All the characters are engaging including Andy's. I'm rooting for both her and her character. I can't wait for season 2.

The show was good and she definitely held her weight as an actress on the show.

I wish her well in her acting career.

I agree with that she basic just held a guitar while on stage. prince didn’t utilize her backup singing either. She probably be the rare protege who does much better after Prince. Her acting is excellent!

I think Andy is underrated as a singer.

I just watched Upload and I am hooked! I finished all 10 episodes of Season 1 in two days. I'm looking forward to Season 2, but due to COVID-19, it could be quite a long wait until filming resumes. I'm very happy for Andy.

Andy Allo used to date Jay Pharoah? I did ot know that.

Dude is extremely funny. His show "White Famous" was hilarious and well-written. Too bad it didn't get a second season.

Yes he is "extremely funny". He is actually my favorite comedian right now! Even though he almost ran me over at Paramount Studios in his golf cart while he was working on "White Famous" lol.

Jay hasn't stopped working since that show was cancelled he's going to be the next big thing.

I knew they were friends, and there was speculation about the nature of their relationship, but I don't ever recall any confirmation that they were dating.
