ANDREW LAWRENCE

Date of Birth: January 12, 1988

Better known for the fame of his older brothers, Joey Lawrence (Gimme A Break and Blossom) and Matthew Lawrence (Boy Meets World), this Pennsylvania native started his career at a very young age.

He began acting at the age of three when he guest-starred on the series Walter and Emily with Cloris Leachman and Brian Keith, which also starred his brother Matthew. He also played the younger version of his oldest brother Joey's character on the sitcom Blossom in two episodes. By 1994 he landed a regular role as Tom Arnold's son on the comedy series Tom.

In 1995 Andrew and his brothers were cast together on a television series called Brotherly Love. Although the series lasted only two years, Andrew was noticed and started getting work on feature films. He made his feature film debut playing John Travolta's son in White Man's Burden (1995), followed up by parts in telefilms such as Brothers of the Frontier (1996), again starring alongside his brothers, and the feature film Bean (1997) with Rowan Atkinson.

Andrew then began doing voice work for Disney's Recess. A popular Saturday morning television show, he voiced T.J., the leader of a group of school buddies. When he wasn't providing the voice for T.J., he continued to increase his acting resumé with films such as Jack Frost (1998) starring Michael Keaton, and Family Tree (1999), as well as more telefilms such as Horse Sense (1999) alongside his brothers, this time playing cousins; The Other Me (2000) and Jumping Ship (2001), reprising his role from Horse Sense. From 2003 to 2004 he played a starring role in the sitcom Oliver Beene and then played a blind teenager who joins the wrestling team in an effort to fit in at his school in the Disney TV movie Going to the Mat (2004). Recurring roles in the TV series Runaway (2006) and The United States of Tara (2009) followed.

More recently Andrew played Eric Russo on the popular CBS action series, Hawaii Five-0, from 2013 to 2018. Since then, Andrew has played a starring role in the TV movie Love on Repeat (2019) and joined his brother Matthew in the indie film, Better Than Love (2019). The same year, he joined both his brothers for the romantic comedy The Office Mix-Up (2019), which also stars Samaire Armstrong (The O.C.).

Andrew lives in Los Angeles, California.
