Ryan hails from the seaside resort of Littlehampton, West Sussex. Aside from dancing at his local dance school, it only took until the age of 10 for Ryan to be taken by Musical Theatre, playing the title role in 'Oliver' at The Windmill Theatre.
For the next 8 years, Ryan performed in multiple shows in and around West Sussex most notably for The Bognor Regis Operatic Society and The Littlehampton Musical Comedy Society. Within this time, he was fortunate enough to be given the oppurtunity to play many fantastic roles.
After studying a BTEC Diploma in Musical Theatre for two years at South Downs College, Waterlooville, Ryan uprooted from the sand and sea of Littlehampton and moved to London, where he has trained and graduated with a BA Hons in Performance (Musical Theatre) Degree from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts.
Whilst in training, Ryan was lucky enough to land the roles of 'Much' in a new musical 'Hoods' and the leading male of 'Fred Graham' in Cole Porter's classic 'Kiss Me Kate'.
Ryan spent 3 years working with P&O & Cunard cruise lines and The Headliners and Royal Court Theatre Companies as Lead Vocalist onboard MV Aurora's World Cruise, MV Azura and MS Queen Victoria.
Ryan has recently finished playing the lead role of Jerry Travers in Top Hat The Musical for SilverBlue Productions. Please visit News, CV or follow Ryan on Twitter and Facebook, to keep up to date with whats happening next...
