Andrade was born in São José dos Campos, São Paulo state, but raised in Campinas.[1] Her mother is of Italian and Spanish descent, while her father's ancestry is Portuguese, Spanish, Swiss, and, possibly, Native Brazilian.[1][2]

Her father was an engineer who traveled frequently.[1] She moved with her family to the U.S. state of Florida when she was 11-years old when her father accepted a permanent engineering position.[1][2] The move to the United States proved difficult at first, as her father was the only family member who spoke English at the time.[1]


Andrade became interested in acting and film during high school.[1] She was cast in her first professional role when she was 15-years old when was appeared in the 2000 HBO biopic, For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story, which starred Andy García as the Cuban jazz musician, Arturo Sandoval.[1] Andrade played Paloma, Sandoval's daughter-in-law, in the television film.[1]

Andrade moved from Florida to Los Angeles when her agent relocated to Southern California.[1] She appeared in several short films and television series during the 2000s and 2010s, including guest spots on CSI: NY and Law & Order: Los Angeles.[1] In 2006, she starred in the ABC Family miniseries, Fallen.[1]

In 2011, she was cast in a recurring role in season four of Sons of Anarchy.[3]

She remained a relatively unknown actress until the debut of her 2012 horror film, The Devil Inside.[1] The film, which stars Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Evan Helmuth, and Suzan Crowley, was produced on a shoe-string budget, but debuted in January 2012 with $34.5 million to win its opening weekend.[4]

In 2016, she was cast as Christina Santos in the pilot episode of the Marvel's Most Wanted, but the series was not picked up by ABC.[5]
