Shawn Pyfrom: Bumped to Recurring Status on Desperate Housewives

by at . Comments

A host of new stars have been added to Desperate Housewives.

But one long-time actor has actually lost his role as a series regular, a mutual decision which Marc Cherry explained to Entertainment Weekly.

Shawn Pyfrom wanted to pursue other projects, so Cherry has arranged a situation in which Andrew doesn’t vanish without a trace, but does take some time away for awhile.

“He wanted more freedom [so] we [hammered out] a smaller episode order with him,” the series creator said. “I don’t ever want to say goodbye to him completely. He’s a beloved figure around here.”

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.

(narrating) Family. There is nothing more important. They're the ones who show up when we are in trouble. The ones who push us to succeed. The ones who help keep our secrets. But what of those who have no family to rely on? What happens to those poor souls who have no loved ones to help them in their hour of need? Well, most learn to walk life's road by themselves. But a sad few of us, simply stop trying.
