Who is Andrea Greene from Swarm? We discuss the central character in the series and the actress who plays her. Be warned – spoilers ahead.

Swarm is a Prime Video series released on the streaming platform on March 17, 2023. The seven-episode series follows Dre, an awkward girl whose obsession with a pop star turns dark and twisted. The series is based on actual events that transpired throughout a period of time. Andrea Greene is the main character in the show. Below we share some information about her character, her obsession with Ni’Jah, and who played the character.

Who is Andrea Greene from Swarm?

Andrea Green, a.k.a Dre, is the lead in the series Swarm. She is a young lady adopted by the Jackson family as a kid and had one (adopted) sister, Marissa.

Her relationship with her adoptive parents, especially her father, Jackson, wasn’t great. Although she was slightly weird and awkward, no matter what happened, her sister Marissa would also stand up for her and protect her. Dre struggled with many social situations because of her upbringing.

Why is Andrea Greene obsessed with a pop star?

Dre looked at Ni’Jah as her muse. Dre had a rough upbringing and used Ni’Jah’s music to help keep her sane. No matter what was happening in her life, the moment a Ni’Jah song dropped, all was right in the world.

Of course, she had her posters on her wall, her wake-up alarm was Ni’Jah, and the background screen on her phone was Ni’Jah. Her obsession with Ni’Jah reminds you of Beyonce’s fan club, the BeyHive.

They make these artists their life, and anyone who opposes them is looked at as an enemy. You see where that obsession drives Dre daily. She had a Twitter account dedicated to Ni’Jah, where she would tweet about her every move.

Also, she also used Twitter to find the hate directed toward her favorite artists. That slowly became the fuel to ignore her daily. Early on, that crutch of Ni’Jah felt like something that was somewhat harmless; instead of paying bills, she wanted to see her in concert.

It’s not that it is right, but that’s the harmless side of obsession. However, later on, we would see her use the crutch in ways that would be harmful to others.

Who plays Andrea Greene in Swarm?

Actress Dominique Fishback plays Dre in Swarm. Fishback broke onto the acting scene making a few appearances on TV shows (The Knick, The Americans, Blue Bloods) before breaking out in the hit HBO show, The Deuce.

Since then, she has starred in movies, including the Academy Award-winning film Judas and the Black Messiah, where she got a BAFTA nomination in the Supporting Actress category. Also, you can see Fishback in the summer of 2023 in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
