Shawn Pyfrom: "Bad Andrew Was More Interesting"
Shawn Pyfrom, the actor who plays Andrew Van De Kamp on ABC's "Desperate Housewives" has said in an interview with "A Socialite Life" old Andrew was more interesting, but credits the writers for playing it right as the evil boy routine could have gotten old.
Speaking in a video interview at the GLAAD Media Awards last week, the actor also said he didn't think there was any more stigma about a straight actor playing a gay character and he credited the movie "Brokeback Mountain" for the change.
Marc Cherry who also attended the event said he was glad his show was nominated for an award and added GLAAD did not nominate Shawn in the first year when he was a sociopath, so they must appreciate that his character has calmed down.
Cherry added the writers wanted to show how getting kicked out in the street changed Andrew and how it gave him new appreciation for what his family had given him which he thinks is a common experience.
Cherry, who had previously said Bree Van De Kamp (Marcia Cross) reminds him of his own mother, said he wanted to reconnect Bree and Andrew, not necessarily to make Andrew more respectable.
That means you will not be seeing that good old meanie Van De Kamp any time soon.
