Andrea K. Brooks (born March 3, 1989) is a Canadian actress and model best known for portraying Faith Carter on the Hallmark series When Calls the Heart and Eve Teschmacher in The CW series Supergirl.
Born in Brantford, Ontario, Brooks trained in figure skating, dancing and musical theatre from an early age. At the age of fifteen, she auditioned for the Disney film Ice Princess. She lost out on the role, but gained an agent. She attended the University of British Columbia, where she gained a BA in English Literature and Film Studies and an MA in Film Studies. She also speaks fluent French.
Having appeared in a variety of film and television productions, Brooks' major break came in 2015 when she was cast in the role of Nurse Faith Carter in the second season of Hallmark series When Calls the Heart. Her character received a mixed audience reception, due mainly to the threat she posed to the series central love story between Mountie Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) and teacher Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow). She continued as a series regular from season three. The series has been renewed for a seventh season, due to air in 2020.
