Hailing from Tampa, Florida, Pyfrom has been acting for as long as he can remember. Starting with numerous commercials in Florida, he eventually booked Disney's Sing Me a Story and a Tampa series called The Reppies, which started his climb to success. After working on such projects as HBO's From the Earth to the Moon and the syndicated drama The Cape, Pyfrom packed up his bicoastal lifestyle and moved to Los Angeles with his mother and two siblings. Arriving in L.A., the Pyfrom kids were home-schooled and went on auditions. Pyfrom, an exceptionally versatile young actor, has appeared in an episode of 7th Heaven as a child with Tourette's Syndrome, the Emmy-nominated episode of Touched by an Angel as a young Jewish boy (opposite Kirk Douglas), and the ABC Movie of the Week Come on Get Happy: The Partridge Family Story, portraying the affable and very red-headed lead character Danny Bonaduce. Pyfrom's convincing turn as the young Bonaduce won him a nomination for The Hollywood Reporter's Young Star Award for Best Actor.
Prior to landing Desperate Housewives, Pyfrom had recurring roles on CBS' comedy Still Standing, with Jami Gertz, and the ABC hit 8 Simple Rules. He has also appeared on the popular shows Malcolm in the Middle, Reba, Drew Carey, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, LA Doctors, Chicago Hope, Jesse, Ellen and The Division and internationally as a recurring lead on the Canadian hit My Hometown. His film credits include Pay It Forward with Helen Hunt and Kevin Spacey, the Canadian comedy A Day in the Life and Disney's Max Keeble's Big Move. Voice-over credits include a series regular role on Stanley and Kids from Room 402.
