Today Lawrence Moran is well known for appearing on a lot of documentaries about real crimes, such as Murder Among Friends and Blood Relatives. But one of his earliest roles was actually on Little House on the Prairie.
He appeared in several of the early episodes as an uncredited child that appeared on the show in 1974 and 1975 before he became a named character in the episode Growin’ Pains as Tom in 1981. He also appeared in one of the final TV movie episodes, The Last Farewell, as Tom, but also uncredited.
He is credited in all the Little House on the Prairie episode as Larry Moran, instead of Laurance Moran that he used later in his career.
