Meet…Andre Andre - A Cactus with Attitude!

Meet…Andre Andre - A Cactus with Attitude!

December 03, 2018

“Never give up. You’ve got this.”

Andre Andre is one serious cactus with attitude, and there’s no better place to see it in action than on the Dance Dunes (the local sand dunes where our party animals like to get loose). Despite struggling a bit on the rhythm front, it’s the crazy shapes he throws that say it all.

Andre Andre was grown from seed just outside Birmingham in a place called Dudley, but with a penchant for acting from a young age, you’d never know it. He has spent his whole life perfecting his Mexican accent and although the odd word comes out by accident, it’s not at all bad. However, in the company of his party loving friends, he lets his guard down and gets back to his roots. Unfortunately, when overexcited, this also means they can’t understand a word he’s saying!

 
In the early days, Andre Andre (who likes his names said twice at all times), was so keen on carving a career in acting, he considered planting himself in a pot headed for Hollywood, but went off the idea when he heard just how many cacti there were out there. Now he is quite happy hanging out with his party loving pals performing the odd monologue when asked.

One of his favourite characters of all time is Musafa from The Lion King. He thinks of it as one of the greatest performances in an animated film, ever.
 
“He is brilliant. I like his thinking. He a great thinker.” He says. "Shall I do my Musafa? Just a bit? Okay - here goes… ‘When we die, our bodies become the grass. And the antelope eat the grass, so we are all connected in the great circle of life’. See what I mean? Great thinker. Wish I could think like that…”
 
Andre Andre still dreams of fame and fortune and is planning on building his online profile in order to get noticed. Being fluent in Birmingham and Mexican he believes might just give him the edge…
 
“Bi-lingual issa good.” He says, “so I no give up. No ever.” That says everything about Andre Andre who firmly believes the more effort you put in, the more goodness comes out.

In order to add to his performance repertoire, he’s also teaching himself to sing with his current party piece being the classic ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen.
