Andrew Jack (born Andrew Hutchinson; 28 January 1944 – 31 March 2020) was a British dialect coach from London who had worked on over 80 motion pictures since 1982.
His father Stephen Jack was an actor, and his mother Julia (nee Hutchinson) was a horticulturist.

As supervising dialect coach for The Lord of the Rings, he created the Middle-earth accents and taught them, along with Elvish and Black Speech, to the cast of the trilogy. He designed and taught the accents for the Greeks and Trojans in Wolfgang Petersen's Troy. He taught Evan Davis to speak with a Nottinghamshire twang. He was known for helping non-British actors to be more intelligible to the audience.
Jack can also be seen in the Star Wars film series portraying Resistance Major (later promoted to General) Caluan Ematt in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He also voiced the character of Moloch in Solo: A Star Wars Story. The final film he was working on at the time of his death was The Batman.

She also had trained at the National Theatre, and then, after she graduated from the University of Sydney, ACA and NIDA, Gabrielle moved on to become Australia’s most sought after voice and dialect teacher. Gabrielle Rogers and Andrew Jack were married until his death from Coronavirus disease 2019 on 31 March 2020.
