Andy McPhee (father)
Kodi is not the only one in his family making a mark in the Hollywood industry; his father Andy who is a former professional wrestler had a meaty role in the US outlaw motorcycle TV series Sons of Anarchy (2010). Andy joined Hollywood at 35 and he really loved the career so it was not a big deal to bring his children along.
According to Kodi, his father excelled as both his dad and teacher. While the Wolf Creek (2005) actor was teaching his son the intricate craft of mastering his roles, he was also dishing out key life lessons on how to navigate through the world of fame. The Matching Jack (2010) star says his dad taught him to always keep his head on his shoulders, stay humble and grounded and to simply enjoy his life as a journey. Andy did not only teach acting to his children, he became a coach at some point to help the family survive financially.
From The Condemned (2007) actor’s relationship with other women, he has four other children.
