“Ryan was born into the industry, touring with his parents Bill Flynn and Anne Power in various shows from a young age. His first taste of performing was in a SACCEE award winning comical rendition of Macbeth. He studied at AFDA (African Film and Drama Academy).
It was during his 2nd year that he got his first experience of a professional film set in Jozi Streets. After graduation he concentrated on musical theatre.
But his fondest memories are playing alongside his father in ‘A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum’ and playing Brad Majors in ‘The Rocky Horror Show’, one of his all time favourite shows as a teenager.
He was also nominated for a Naledi Award for his Rocky Horror performance as Best New-Comer. He also played Prince Charming in the Roger’s & Hammerstein classic, Cinderella with a live orchestra, which he won the Durban Theatre Award for Best Male Lead in a Musical.
His two most recent appearances were in the international touring company of Jersey Boys and Sound of Music, which toured all over Asia and New Zealand. He is also an accomplished Voice Over artist and writer.
