BIOGRAPHY

“Ryan is a really exciting new talent” – Idris Elba

Ryan, originally from North Lincolnshire, graduated from Goldsmiths Uni and Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. In 2016, he won the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Prize for his TV drama, ‘We Are Your Children’, which was also on the UK’s 2017 Brit List. The series was also selected by Idris Elba and Lionsgate for their ‘Write to Greenlight’ competition. The series has since contributed to the reopening of a decades-old cold case.

In 2017, the Royal Television Society featured Ryan as a ‘Talent of Tomorrow’ and Gay Times Magazine named him an ‘Emerging Artist’ to watch. In November 2017, Ryan was a finalist in the C21/eOne Drama Script Competition.

He’s currently developing two dramas for the BBC and has 15 original TV projects in active development with companies including the WORLD, EUSTON FILMS, DNA, BIG TALK and ROUGH CUT.
