Patrick Francis Labyorteaux (born July 22, 1965) is an American actor, television producer and television writer. In many of his earlier credits, his last name is spelled as "Laborteaux". He is best known for his roles of Andrew "Andy" Garvey on the NBC series Little House on the Prairie as well as Bud Roberts on the CBS series JAG and NCIS.
Labyorteaux was born on July 22, 1965, in Los Angeles, California to unknown parents. He was adopted by Ronald "Ron" Labyorteaux (1930–1992), a talent agent, and Frances Mae "Frankie" Labyorteaux (1927–2012), an actress better known by the stage name Frances Marshall, at the age of nine months. Little is known of his personal life before he was adopted, though his adoptive mother commented that when they first met Labyorteaux, he was suffering from malnutrition and had been labeled "unadoptable" by social workers. His brother, Matthew Labyorteaux, was adopted by Ronald and Frances in 1967, when he was ten months old, and his sister, Jane Labyorteaux, at an unknown date.
