Here’s all you need to know about Andy Allo aka Nora from Amazon Prime’s ‘Upload’?

Here's everything you need to know about Andy Allo.

Amazon Prime’s new original series Upload, will grab your attention with Andy Allo, who plays living customer service rep (and “Angel”) Nora Antony. She is just like us or any other girl we come across. So, lets take a peek into who exactly Andy Allo is.

1. Who is Andy Allo?

Andy Allo is a Cameroonian-American singer-songwriter, guitarist and actress. She’s known for playing the lead role of Nora in the Amazon Prime science fiction comedy series Upload, but she also has a number of other TV and movies to her credit.

Aside from her acting, Allo has released four albums. According to her website, the musician has toured extensively throughout Europe and Canada and even completed a 25 city U.S. tour and a residency in Melbourne, Australia just last year.

2. How did her career begin?

Allo began her career in 2011 as a singer and guitarist in Prince’s backing band, The New Power Generation. Shortly after, she embarked on a solo career and has since released a number of studio albums including “Unfresh,” “Superconductor” “Hello” and “One Step Closer.”

However, in between the release of her albums, Allo somehow managed to find some time for acting. She appeared on a three-episode arc of the series The Game, a spin-off of the CW’s popular sitcom Girlfriends.  She bagged the biggest role with her six-episode stint as Lieutenant Wendy Seager on Dick Wolf’s hit fire department drama Chicago Fire.

3. How did ‘Upload’ happen to her?

According to an interview with Collider, Allo was first drawn to the idea of working with Greg Daniels, creator of hit shows like The Office and Parks and Rec.

“First of all, Greg Daniels was a big part of that, and getting to work with him was a dream,” she said. “But then, outside of that, I read the script and saw how layered the characters and relationships were, and also the world. Nora has such a big heart and, instantly, I connected to that.”

4. Does She have a good relationship with Robbie Amell (who plays Nathan) in real life?

Absolutely. In the 31-year-old’s own words she “really lucked out.”

“Robbie is such a generous, giving and kind actor and person to work with, and also is very easy on the eyes, so that makes it nice,” Allo told the outlet. “As Nora and Nathan got to know each other, so did me and Robbie, which was so great. You get to see that, throughout the series, with us getting to know each other, in the show and in real life. We just hit it off. Sometimes you don’t get that, but we really did.”

Actually, it seems as though the entire cast has a good relationship. “When you’re living in a different city—we were shooting in Vancouver—and you don’t know a lot of people, you get close,” Amell (aka Nathan) recently told The Hollywood Reporter “You hang out with your cast and become a tight-knit group of friends.”

There is a feeling that we are going to be seeing a lot of Allo in the coming years.
