Shawn Pyfrom: Bumped to Recurring Status on Desperate Housewives

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.”
