Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The youngest of the acting Lawrence brothers, Andrew was a pint-sized mimic, a devoted fan of Jim Carrey who loved to do impressions of his movie hero on TV talk shows. Andrew came to public attention on the TV sitcom "Brotherly Love" (NBC, 1995-96; The WB, 1996-97), in which he played the costume-wearing, superhero-loving youngest Roman brother living together above the garage their late father once owned. Lawrence broke into show business in 1991 at age three, making an appearance on the series "Walter and Emily" on which his older brother Matt had a regular role. He occasionally played oldest brother Joey as a tyke in flashback sequences on "Blossom" (NBC, 1991-95) and was Tom Arnold's son in the short-lived 1994 CBS sitcom "Tom." Lawrence made his TV-movie debut in "Cries Unheard: The Donna Yaklich Story" (CBS, 1974) as the youngest of a brood of kids trying to understand why their mother had their father killed. In 1996, he was the object of a computer stalker in "Deadly Web" (NBC) and co-starred with his two older siblings in the Western-adventure busted pilot "Brothers of the Frontier" (ABC). In features, he was John Travolta's son in "White Man's Burden" (1995).
