Career

Ryan Merriman began his career doing commercials, print work, vocal performances, and local theater in Oklahoma when he was only 8 years old. He now has 25 films, four television series and several guest appearances to his credit.

He recently wrapped up filming on another independent feature opposite these beautiful ladies, Torrey DeVitto, Brit Morgan and Paige Howard, entitled, Cheescake Casserole. This comedy is all about finding out what's inside. Ryan starred in the Hallmark original movie Elevator Girl starring alongside Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls). Elevator Girl is a romantic comedy about a workaholic attorney Jonathan MacIntyre who gets trapped in a stalled elevator with Liberty Taylor (Chabert), a carefree and eccentric whose life consists of odd jobs and unfinished degrees. Their different lifestyles eventually crash and they must decide whether their love can survive their differences. Romantic comedy is a new genre (for Ryan) to be added to an already diverse resume, ranging from horror movies to westerns, from thrillers to sitcoms.
