Andy Thompson (born 15 November 1970) is a Canadian actor, theater artist, filmmaker, and teacher.

After graduating from Sardis Senior Secondary School in 1987, he attended Fraser Valley College, now the University of the Fraser Valley. In 1993, he obtained his diploma in acting from Studio 58 in Vancouver.

As a theater and film producer, director, and writer, Thompson has won several awards. The Virtual Stage and Electric Company Theatre's 2008 production of No Exit, which Thompson co-produced and performed in, garnered rave reviews and won Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards for Outstanding Production as well as the Critics' Choice Innovation Award before touring across North America. He co-produced, co-wrote and performed in the short film The Provider, which won the 2010 Bloodshots 48-Hour Horror Filmmaking Competition before going to the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, where it was given a "Coup de Coeur" distinction as one of the best short films from Canada. Also in 2011, his entry into the international Film Racing Grand Prix short film competition, the super-hero spoof Repair Man, won third place overall, and was the top-ranking Canadian film of the contest.

In 2013, Thompson's sci-fi musical comedy Broken Sex Doll was hailed in the press and described as the biggest hit of the Vancouver theater season "and maybe the Next Big Thing in Canadian theatre." The show went on to garner seven Jessie Richardson Theatre Award nominations, including Outstanding Production and Outstanding Direction for Thompson.
