Who Is Andy Garcia?
Andrés Arturo Garcia Menéndez, a Cuban-American filmmaker and actor, was born on April 12, 1956, in Havana, Cuba, into a Catholic family. René Garcia Nez, his father, was an attorney and avocado farmer in Cuba before moving to the United States and starting a fragrance business. His mother, Amelie Menéndez, was an English teacher. Andy has an older sister, Tessi, and an older brother, René.
Andy’s family relocated to Miami, Florida, when he was five years old, following the unsuccessful Bay of Pigs invasion. René founded his multimillion-dollar perfume enterprise in Miami.
Andy was a member of his high school basketball team while attending Miami Beach Senior High School. He contracted mononucleosis during his senior year of high school, which inspired him to pursue a career in acting. Andy went on to attend and graduate from Florida International University after matriculation.
He subsequently relocated to Hollywood, where he began his acting career.
In 1983, he played Ricardo in the film “Guaguasi,” and he rose to prominence after playing Vincent Mancini, Sonny Corleone’s bastard son, in “The Godfather III” in 1990, a role deliberately chosen by director Francis Ford Coppola. Andy was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards for his work.
In 1999, he played Gary Starke in “Just the Ticket.” In 2001, he played Terry Benedict, an egotistical Las Vegas casino magnate, in “Ocean’s Eleven,” a remake of the 1960 caper film.
Andy featured in the sequel, “Ocean’s Twelve,” in 2004, and again in the sequel, “Ocean’s Thirteen,” in 2007. Andy won the American Latino Media Arts (ALMA) Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2002 for his portrayal in “Ocean’s Eleven.”
Andy had a fantastic year professionally in 2018, starring in four films. He starred alongside Amanda Seyfried, Lily James, Stellan Skarsgaard, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and Cher in “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” which was a box commercial and critical hit.
The film garnered an 81% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with one critic writing, ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again doubles down on just about everything fans loved about the first – and my my, how can fans resist it?’ Andy told NBC’s Today show, “It was sublime.” It’s one thing to work with Cher, who is a fantastic actor, and then to be asked to sing with her.’
Andy’s net worth is believed to be over $20 million as of late 2020, with his income derived from his profession as an actor, director, and film producer.
He owns a $3 million mansion in Miami, Florida, as well as a $60,000 Cadillac.
Andy also owns a $4 million Cuban-styled mansion in Key Biscayne, Florida, which is built on a 9082 square foot (843.75 square meters) lot and features four bedrooms, five and a half baths, a pool, a private dock, and a master suite. Andy was supposedly looking for a tenant in 2014 to rent his property for $30,000 per month!
Marivi Lorido Garcia is best known as the executive producer of the 1998 film “Just the Ticket.” She has produced numerous films in which Andy has appeared, notably “The Lost City” in 2005. Marivi and Andy decided to launch their own production company, CineSon Entertainment, together.

Their eldest daughter, Dominik Cristina Garcia-Lorido, was born on 16 August 1983, their second daughter, Daniella Garcia-Lorido, on 3 January 1988, and their youngest daughter, Alessandra Garcia-Lorido, on 20 June 1991. Andrés Garca-Lorido, the happy couple’s sole child, was born on January 28, 2002.
Dominik chose to follow in her father’s footsteps and became an actor, appearing in “The Lost City” as Mercedes Fellove and “City Island” as Vivian Rizzo. Daniella is also trying her hand at acting, while Alessandra went the Hollywood path and is a successful model.
The six-person family divides their time between Key Biscayne, Florida, and Toluca Lake, Los Angeles.
