Concerning his professional career, he wrote script adaptations for plays for both the Sydney Theatre Company as well as London’s Royal National Theatre. Among his works are the script adaptations for such plays as “Children of the Sun”, “The Cherry Orchard”, “Cyrano de Bergerac” among many others. In 2007, the play “Riflemind” was opened, which was an original script written by Andrew Upton; the critics praised the above mentioned play in Australia, yet when it was opened in London (in 2008) the reviews were poor. Due to the unfavourable reviews as well as the Global Financial Crisis, the play was soon closed. It is worth saying that Andrew Upton and his wife Cate Blanchett worked as directors at the Sydney Theatre Company for five years from 2008 to 2013.

Moreover, the family has launched a film production company entitled Dirty Films. Under the aforementioned label the short film “Bangers” (1999) was released, the main star being Cate Blanchett, and written, directed and co-produced by Andrew Upton. Under the same label the feature film “Little Fish” (2005) was released, directed by Rowan Woods, with Cate in the lead role.

In 2007, Upton alongside James Watkins wrote the script for the psychological thriller “Gone” directed by Ringan Ledwidge. Then, Andrew was the author of the libretto of the opera “Through the Looking Glass” by Alan John. The opera was opened in the middle of 2008. Overall, all the above mentioned engagements have added sums to the size of Andrew Upton net worth.

In the middle of 2014, Andrew Upton was honoured with the Rotary Professional Excellence Award for his contribution to art and consistent professional excellence.

Finally, in the personal life of Andrew Upton, he fell in love with Cate participating in the television series in 1996, and at the end of 1997 the two married. The family has four children, three biological children and one adopted child. The family lived in Hunters Hill, Sydney Australia, then in 2015, they sold the house and bought an English manor, Highwell House, located in East Sussex, England. In addition to this, they own a modern apartment in downtown Sydney, so they share their time between those two places.
