Getting To Know... Ryan

Tell us about a transformative educational experience. 


I was in an acting class and I kept showing up 5-10 minutes late, I got yelled at. The next day I showed up 15 minutes late and got kicked out of class. Now I show up an hour early for everything involving my art.



What about transformative professional experiences? 


I was in Streetcar Named Desire, the lady that was playing Blanche wasn’t memorized, when I saw her on stage being a bad teammate; I knew from that day on I would always be off book as soon as it was possible.



Why I do what I do... 


I enjoy my art because it brings me creative release, if I had nothing to put my soul and heart into I would go crazy. Also I live for the applause.



What about ECT inspires you? 


Training with my fellow actors I enjoy learning with them and being on the same page as them. Watching them grow with me really inspires me.



Where have you traveled? Where would you like to visit? 


I’ve road tripped all over the States, visited my family in Canada once.



My favorite "day-off" event would be... 


Relaxing, working on my motorcycle, expressing myself sexually, go to the beach, shopping.



If I had one million dollars I would... 


I would buy a flat in Los Angeles and use my money to live rent free.
