Breaking into entertainment industry in early 1990s while not yet entered his teens at that time, Zachery Tyler Bryan has certainly scored a fantastic accomplishment few actors of his generation could match to soar as one of the potential young stars in Hollywood for sure. A native of Colorado born on October 9, 1981 in Aurora to Dwight and Jenny Bryan, Zachery has developed his career since he was still a very young kid, starting it from a local commercial in Denver at the age of 5. As his first appearance proceeded to other stints, the boy immediately found himself being involved in a series of either printed or TV advertisements afterwards, some of them even were aired nationally, like Ralph Lauren and Burger King to name few. Getting used to the camera, it was not really surprising when the boy gradually grew an interest in acting which then prompted him to try his hand at the field.

Some of those included "Boston Public" in 2000, "ER" by 2001, "Philly" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" in 2002, also "Smallville" by 2003, all saw him showing up only in guest appearance rather than as regular cast. Next back to film feature in "The Game of Their Lives" (2005) alongside Gerard Butler, Wes Bentley, plus John Rhys-Davies, this striking
