Andrew Robinson, Sgt. Botnick from 'Child's Play 3', burst onto the Hollywood scene in the 1971 Clint Eastwood classic, 'Dirty Harry'. He was cast in the supporting role of the Scorpio Killer, a character heavily based on the real-life Zodiac Killer, and received mostly positive reviews from his performance. Box Office Magazine called it "maniacal...a good blend of cunning and savagery". His performance was so good that he actually started receiving real-life death threats following the release of the film. From that point on, Robinson found himself primarily cast in demented, slasher-type roles. He got his first lead role for Clive Barker in 'Hellraiser' (1987), and has also had a variety of one-time and recurring roles on the small screen, including popular shows like 'Law & Order', 'The X-Files', and 'The Twilight Zone'.

Following his experiences in front of the camera, Robinson eventually turned his attention behind the camera, directing several episodes of the series, as well as two 'Star Trek: Voyager' episodes and seven editions of 'Judging Amy', which featured his daughter Rachel in a recurring role. Andrew founded the Matrix Theater Company in Los Angeles, California, and currently heads an MFA program at the USC School of Dramatic Arts.
