It was over a decade ago when Marietta, Georgia, resident Dan Byrd was first bitten by the acting bug. The then-8-year-old Byrd went to see a live performance of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" on Broadway and was hooked.
Now all grown up and living in Los Angeles, California, Byrd has seen his childhood dream through. His break came break in 1998 after countless local productions and commercials when Byrd--who attended Marietta city schools up until high school and was home schooled for the last four years of his education--was cast in the Lifetime Network television series "Any Day Now" (1998), starring Lorraine Toussaint. Byrd sometimes may be longing for sweet tea and Krispy Kreme donuts, but he looked forward to his starring role in "Clubhouse" (2004), a new television series about baseball that was canceled shortly after its debut on CBS.
- Has appeared in numerous theater productions in Atlanta.
- Began acting at the age of 8.

- Was to appear in a 2007 remake of _Revenge of the Nerds (1984)_ (qv) starring 'Adam Brody (I)' (qv) but after three weeks of filming the project was canceled.
