Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

After receiving his start with small parts in movies starring his older sister, Elizabeth Shue, actor Andrew Shue came into his own as taxi driver Billy Campbell on the iconic primetime soap, "Melrose Place" (Fox, 1992-98). The role turned Shue into an overnight star, as well as a long-running object of female desire during the show's run. He made the transition to features playing Claire Dane's abusive husband in Francis Ford Coppola's "The Rainmaker" (1997), but once "Melrose" ended its soap opera reign, Shue left acting to focus on running Do Something, a non-profit organization he founded in 1993 that sought to help motivate young people to make social change through various causes. Despite stepping back in front of cameras for a minor role in his sister's indie drama, "Gracie" (2007), fans of "Melrose Place" were forced to wait longer to see if Shue would ever again return to acting.
