At A Glance
Bryton McClure joined The Young and the Restless in April 2004 as Devon Hamilton, a troubled teenager who came into the lives of the Winters family.

Bryton began his acting career at an early age, landing his first commercial when he was just two years old. He was soon cast as Richie on the hit series Family Matters, where he appeared in most of the show's nine-year run.

In addition to acting, Bryton has enjoyed success as a recording artist. He debuted his first single, "Ooh, The Way I Feel About You," on the German TV series Stars 2000, and has performed live on the international networks Viva, ZDF 5, and Giga TV, as well as on the Disney Channel and major broadcast networks in the U.S. His single is available on a compilation CD, titled "20 Top Hits: Winter Extra 2000," that includes songs by Britney Spears and *NSYNC.

Bryton has also done voice-over work as Freddie, on the animated series Kids From Room 402, and Mowgli on The Jungle Book CD-Rom.

An active spokesperson for many charitable organizations, Bryton founded his own charity in 1996 called "RADD (Recording Artists, Actors and Athletes Against Drunk Driving) Kids," which has been awarded by the United States government for outstanding youth safety work. He has also received the Michael Landon Award for charitable contributions through youth in entertainment. A resident of Southern California, Bryton's hobbies include racing go-karts, snowboarding, playing video games and performing live.

Although Bryton plays the hearing-impaired Devon, he is not hearing-impaired himself. In 2009, Bryton legally took his grandfather's last name of James.
