In 1996 Ryan was chosen for the part of young Jarod in the TV drama sci-fi mystery series “The Pretender”, appearing in 50 episodes in four years, but meantime featuring in other projects, including the television films “What’s Right with America” (1997), “Night Ride Home” and “Smart House” both in 1999.

The following years he was Myles Barton in the horror film “Halloween: Resurrection”, while in 2005 he was Jake in the horror film “The Ring Two”, starring Naomi Watts, David Dorfman and Sissy Spacek. Having seen that roles in horror films suited him, he starred in another horror “Final Destination 3” in 2006, and then “Backwoods” in 2008.
Rise to Prominence
Ryan used the momentum from the 2000s and several successful horror film appearances to land the part of Ian Thomas in the TV series “Pretty Little Liars” (2010-2014), which became one of his most prominent roles. Concurrently, Ryan was active in search of other projects, and in 2011 starred in the comedy-drama film “Tomorrow’s End”, then the comedy film “Cheesecake Casserole” (2012), and had a supporting role in the biopic about Jackie Robinson, entitled “42” and starring Chadwick Boseman, T.R. King and Harrison Ford, which was a complete success, launching Ryan to stardom. Since then, he has featured in a number of films, though only a few made an impact on his career. He starred in the sci-fi drama film “Domain” in 2017, and in the comedy series “In the Rough”. He is currently working on several projects, including the horror film “Portal” and the western film “Palominas”, both scheduled for release late in 2018.
